    My cousin sent me a link about this. You can look it up on YouTube. One of the inventors was demonstrating their creation. They will be making basses in the future. It is a plastic, modular guitar. It has a built in stand. You can snap on and off different body parts to give you different shapes. You can pop in “cassettes” with different pickups/pickup configurations. An interesting video, some innovative thinking and engineering.
    Instead of having multiple basses you could just pop in a P cassette, a J cassette, Ric cassette....
    It will be interesting to see if this makes it to the marketplace and what it ultimately costs. Being made of plastic the goose was to keep the guitars affordable.

    Probably not something I would personally buy.

    But definitely have possibilities, and very innovating.

    Also seems to be very well thought through.

    Here's a really thorough go through of the guitar and interview with one of the creators:

    Pass. Its a niche thing and will most likely only be sought by those who like the weird, unique, strange and different...kind of like side show collectors ;-)
    Rock on.

    Yeah, don't think it's a niche thing. There is a lot of innovation happening there, wish there was a bass version to demo. Watch that space.
  5. Bridge design around 27:00 is interesting

    Exchangeable pickups have been done several times over the years. The early Dan Armstrong plexiglass guitars had pickup modules that popped out the back. The idea was tried again by a company called Player in the mid '80s. And the early version of the Music Man Silhouette guitar had pickguards that could be easily removed and swapped, allowing you to change pickup configuration.

    As far as the 6 string, 3 single coil models go.......I'd have to pass. It has to be 25.5" radius or nothing. The 24.7" that they are using for ALL GUITARS allows the Gibson guys a fun toy, but Gibson guys won't buy it. Strats outsell every guitar on the planet compared to every other guitar combined year after year for a reason. You would think they would want a piece of THAT PIE. Blocking what the MAJORITY of the world wants their axe to sound like is like cutting off your foot and the rest of your appendages. I really wanted one, but, I found that out about the scale and ran out the door without looking back.

    I'd rather not live in a world that exclusively catered the majority, in my opinion that would be straight out Hell, for one there would only exist absolute horrible music, just take a look on the Top 40 charge.

    That is if there would even be made any equipment to make music with at all in such a world.

    I'd rather cut off my foot than live in such a world frankly.

    The vast majority of people are pretty IGNORANT, sad but true, and that the majority like or support something only means just that, it's a quantitative fact, not a qualitative one, and in no way is it a proof of it being right, remember the vast majority of people also once was of the firm conviction that the Earth was flat, just like you prefer your fingerboards apparently. ;)

    I for one welcome this truly innovating concept, progress is made by those who dare think different and new thoughts, despite of what the majority might think of them!
