    Most notably a fretless guitar!!!!!!! They also have some 7 strings. The sweet looking sonic blue tele and gypsy style guitar (i think that has been there for a bit now) are tempting me REALLY badly... The spalted fretless 6 is nice too! Theres a random Gibson Jumbo for 2k+ to boot! I'm hoping they'll make available a cheap jumbo purely acoustic guitar soon!

    I gotta say I'm suprised (and VERY pleased) to see the fretless guitar!
  2. Why on earth would you be pleased to see a fretless guitar??? What a bad idea... I mean for single notes it might be alright, but can you imagine chords?

    Bleh :spit: :scowl:

    I saw a vid of Stevie Vai playing a three-necked guitar.. it was a 12 string on top, 6 string fretted in the iddle and a 6-string fretless on the bottom..

    yeah the fretless one he used for doing glis slides and some crazy sounds.. but no chording, really

    I'm surprised to see that they have instruments that are in the $700 range. I'm more interested in their less expensive stuff <$200. Some great looking toys though.

    I saw a guy on a PBS program playing a fretless guitar. He was tapping out chords and melodies. Freaking ridiculous.
