I think it looks kinda cool too...I bet it sounds like raped asshole, but it looks cool...


EDIT: Actually, it may sound pretty good. I only read up until it said it was made of carbon haha. Ebony fingerboard, supposedly better harmonic frequenies than wood...Eh, it'd be interesting to hear it, that's for sure

Being carbon fibre it may actually sound really really good. ANd I mean really good.
#12
Looks cool to me. Too bad it costs over 2k.

oh yeah? well larry king the slayer guitarist owns bc rich guitars. (i think)

I couldn't find out how much this "lightweight" guitar weighs. It thought it would be neat to see if it weighed less than the 4 pound yamaha RGX A2. I bet it is 4 times as expensive though.
#14
It weighs ~4 lb, sounds amazing, looks awesome, but there are some flaws for me as a player, as I use 7-Strings, and I'm relatively poor.
It costs $3,750.99.

Physics wise it should sound way better than a wooden one. I'd like to try one, although the most id spend is like 2k.
#17
Completely in carbon fiber? Is that included the neck and fretboard? Wouldn't that be stupid since it would make any truss rod adjustment to be almost impossible.

sorry I couldnt resist.

But perhaps it sounds indeed nicer than any of the wood guitars.

I can't decide whether it looks awful or okay. But I wouldn't go so far as to say it actually looks good.

EDIT: I just looked at it again, and it's kind of hideous.

It looks excellent IMO, would be cool to play some prog on that I think people are SO conservative when it comes to guitars. Either conservative or just like pointy guitars. True innovation seems to scare alot of guitarists. If it sounds better, then that's what matters. I know alot of people who are against Parker Fly's etc for the same reason, just because it's not what they're used to.

Like Morello said, "at the end of the day, it's just a piece of wood with strings on it"...or in this case carbon fibre, but the point stands that people get too defensive/protective/conservate about guitars IMO.

interesting.. i wonder how it'd sound?
Grammar and spelling omitted as an exercise for the reader.
#24
It looks interesting, but I doubt it sounds in any way superior to a wooden guitar.

And even if it did, people would stick to the old-school guitars.

Did the line 6 Variax, Fender VG, Gibson Digital and Robot guitars catch on? Nope.

EDIT: watched the video. It does sound nice, but nothing we'd never heard before.

I think you're right about people being conservative, but the reason they are is because they are used to it. Guitars are personal things, and people are used to the designs they grew up with.
If you look at the most popular models today, like the Stratocaster and Les Paul, they're both over 50 years old! If something designed 50 years ago is still the industry standard today, then it must be a pretty good design, don't you think?
Are there any other designs in ANY field of technology that have survived this long without losing popularity?

Oh, I'm not saying that what we've currently got is bad, but there's always scope for change and development. I mean, hell, I use a valve amp so people may call me a hypocrit for that, but it's just a case of using the best gear that's out there. If that sounds better, then I'd go for that. I'd need to play it myself though to make a proper decision, judging through compressed soundfiles on Youtube is no way to make a judgement, I'm sure you'll agree

That's because they're very expensive.
#28
Eh,

1. Old news, that article is ****ing pretentious like nobodies business. The whole "handle" gimmick is pretty old and definitely nothing revolutionary. The only thing that may be revolutionary is the full carbon fiber thing it has going on but then again I wouldn't necessarily call that revolutionary anyways since I'm sure someone has thought about making a guitar out of all carbon but never decided to go through with it since it wouldn't be practical and it would definitely be expensive.

2. Also handle guitars rarely are lookers anyways: http://fershop.net/images/stabilizer_slv_b.jpg

CARBON FIBER would likely sound better than wood because of its properties. It has FAR FAR more resonance. Im pretty sure It sounds A LOT better than wood guitars. Unless too much resonance, creates a weird sound
#37
If they were like dirt cheap I'd consider it...


When I first saw the picture I thought it was horrible, but I could get used to it. The metal parts around the bridge and pickups kinda take away from it though.
