you can indeed usually get ****ty guitars of ebay with plexi bodies then put some nice hardware in it because it's not wood you don't have to worry about tone.

I've played one. A BC Rich Acrylic Warlock, to be exact. It's awfully heavy, and it didn't sound very good (cos it's a BC Rich and their pickups suck). It was pretty solid construction but not much else.

The best see-thru guitar is probably the Dan Armstrong 'Perspex Avenger', but that's no longer in production, and they'd be really expensive on eGay.

Why not get a Kramer? They have this Randy Rhodes shaped guitar made of red plexiglass. I think it's called the 'vanguard' or something, and you can get a chinese-made one anywhere, CHEAP

The best I can think of is to contact your local plexiglass suppliers and ask them to make you a body. I live in switzerland, and you can't find ANY guitar or electronics supplies, but you can find plexiglass companies easily. Isn't that amazing?

korea, and they mostly came in purple, kramer was bitching till they got bought out by musicyo who got bought out by gibson : (, and acrilic and plexiglass are 2 diffrent things, plexiglass guitar= suckage, acrilic guitar = ok, some good, i.e. crystal planet

uhh acrilic right? ok they sound good for an electric but they are too uniform in texture and density to create a warm tone...
