Haha, cool idea. Much more portable than a real guitar. Doesn't ship to NZ though.

That's pretty cool! SamAsh music has them for 45usd. I may stop in sometime and pick one up - would be nice for work - kinda like a stress toy, but could really help with some dim chords and what not. smile.gif

The shredneck is a very cool idea! If you have a long travel you can practice during it. Who knows how much does it cost?

I go crazy with out guitar, but don´t like things that doesn´t tune.
Look for something like a lapstick but look for someone that makes you a cheaper one.
