I'm a huge fan of originals, of innovation.

So what's the most original, innovative guitar you've ever seen?

Personally, I think it's the Yamaha RGX-A2.





It's insanely light. It's made of an extremely lightweight piece of wood sandwiched between two harder pieces. It uses three sound tubes that run from the bottom of the bridge through to the back of the guitar to resonate the sound through the guitar.

It's a dream to play, and got the looks too. It's even got green and blue LEDs around the volume knob that glow when it's plugged in to an amp.

Ovation Deacon. First guitar with active electronics, and a highly ergonomic shape.

The guitars Bo Diddley created. They look like rectangles, but I don't know if they have a name.

Les Paul's original "Log" guitar is probably the most innovative guitar. That and Leo Fender's Esquire and Strat are probably the three most historically signifigant guitars. As far as that Yamaha goes, That is the guitar of the future right there if u added a Roland pickup.

How does that make it innovative? Let alone the fact that it has nothing to do with anything, lol. I want one, though.

Weren't Kramer the first company to have floating bridges on production models. That's pretty innovative.

I like them. They feel nice, and I saw one that had a permanent capo on it that you can move up or down in a 5 fret range, letting you easily change tunings half a step at a time progressively until you got to drop C.

Well the fact that it was one of the first guitars with humbuckers tells me something. Also at the time, there was only Strats or the guitars Leo Fender made.

Oh really? I had no idea. Neato. I thought you meant just the shape, saying it was rectangular and all. But if it was the first with humbuckers, than yea, I guess it is innovative.
#22
easily the stratocaster. it was completely different from everything before it.

and then Ibanez made it pointy

Yeah, I would say that one. Its made by Mason I think. I could never use such a guitar, but its pretty neat and has a lot of possibilities

I'm extremely tempted to post the Wangcaster just to be a twat. But I won't.

But to be on topic, I'd say the SG. I hate them, but they are pretty easy and lightweight, perfect for rock bands and all their on stage antics.

Broadcaster/Telecaster. The first solid body electric guitar. I hate them, but hey, gotta respect that.
