My guess would be acrylic. I don't think you could make a guitar out of glass, it would weigh probably... 30lbs? And, it would likely break under string tension.

Can you imagine a glass guitar shattering in your hands?

Or the strap breaking and watching at least $1000 of awesome crash at your feet....
Or having one of the pickups or such break out...
Many other things than shattering.

In short, NO to glass guitars.
But I have seen some see through ones at my local store, they're pretty awesome, but still not my thing.
