I'm very curious to try one out one day. As said in the video the body is one piece which is close to impossible to find these days on wood cause tree's are cut smaller today compared to the past.

I have never actually heard of them but they do look really cool. Especially the white one with gold hardware smile.gif

From a practicality standpoint, wood is the worst material to make guitars from. This seems to solve many of the problems of wood guitars, such as the effects of temperature and humidity changes on intonation and tuning stability.

As far as its tone, I'm of the belief that the construction of the guitar - i.e. bolt on vs set neck - will have more of an effect than the material used. Of course, thats one of the most controversial opinions to have in the guitar community lol

But, at the end of the day, if it sounds good to you, then that is all that matters biggrin.gif

I've never tried one but I'd like to smile.gif I don't know anyone personally who owns one and I've never seen on the wall at any music store so it does seem like they are extremely rare. It's a boutique, custom instrument, so much like Daemoness, or Huffschmid, they are really rare to come across. But it looks neat from the pictures smile.gif
