I used to have an acrylic Warlock like 5 years ago...Heavier than a Les Paul it was. I don't know of any non wood guitars in production today.

Switch. All synthetic and affordable. Actually the few reviews and post I have read give them fairly high ratings, but try before buy.

Steve Vai 20th, Switch guitars... that's all I can think of. B.C. Rich acrylics are terrible IMO.

They're very expensive I think (at least the good ones). Though they look amazing, and are supposed to have good sustain, because the necks and bodies are one solid piece, right?

I've never played or seen one that I can remember.

as mentioned above, there are the dan armstrongs and the switches.

as wasn't mentioned however, wesley make acrylic les pauls. like the dan armstrongs, they have wooden necks and acrylic bodies. i actually have one. it cost me 25 pounds, used from ebay. in terms of hardware, it was pretty dire quality (and mine had a broken tuner). however, after replacing the tuners and buying a decent neck pickup (unlike the microphonic ones it comes with) i am actually very impressed. it plays pretty nicely (not as nice as my mia fender, but thats no surprise), and sounds pretty decent, though i do think the acrylic does make the tone noticeably different to wood. note i say different, not worse. sustain on the thing is awesome too, probably because its probably the heaviest guitar i've ever played.

but on the whole, for the price i paid (after postage and modifications, still well under a hundred pounds) i think its a pretty great guitar. really entertaining to take on stage too.
my name is matt. you can call me that if you like.

There's someone on here that started a business making carbon fibre guitars. Not exactly well known but I'm sure that there are other companies doing the same thing.

Yeah. people, like Lemoninfluence, are hypocrites and should have all their opinions invalidated from here on out.

There is the Ampeg one.... I have also seen an Acryllic strat, but that must have been a custom build. I was looking online and I saw an all aluminum guitar that looked pretty sweet

What about Steinberger? They make headless guitars out of graphite, and are used by a few great players, such as Paul Masdival of Cynic fame.

I've only ever seen one carbon fibre guitar, it was some acoustic. I wish I could remember what it's called... Again though, expensive.

I knew I was forgetting something. I love those guitars, but I wasn't crazy about the looks at first.

Again, why has no-one mentioned RKS?


cos theyre, imo, butt ugly. Which is kinda appropriate for a 'p0rn' guitar.

correct me if im wrong, but i thought parkers are wood also, just some of the tops and fretboard are composite stuff.

only acrylics i know of are the jem and the ampeg listed above. that jem is to die for.

Acoustic guitars made of carbon fiber. They are stronger and lighter, thus no warping even without a truss rod. The guitar is one peice and the neck joint is insane, so the acoustic has AMAZING upper fret access. The website has sound clips that sound really nice to me.

This guy I know has an all composite material acoustic. Sounds quite cool.

Those are neat. There are a few companies who make them. Rainsong, Composite Acoustics and theres a couple I can't think of right now. As far as electrics I know Parker has made all carbon fiber guitars. Also as mentioned the Ampeg Plexi guitar.

Please don't tell me I'm the only one that clicked this thread thinking I would learn how to make my guitar sound like a grizzly bear.
