    saw a bunch of them at NAMM one year... pointless, wasteful and uninspiring, if you ask me.

    ... good graphic artist though.

    Though of course was given a double take, I also must give it my "yuck" vote, based on looks only. Who knows, it might sound the like the greatest thing ever invented... :rolleyes:

    Why the horrible looking bare neck pocket? Why the dummy input? All these things, being a typical audience member, would be totally glossed over and actually makes it look even more unattractive and extra-cheesey.

    And man does it look uncomfortable.

    I'd RENT one for Backwards day though. Because, you know, that happens so often...like, totally...

    Guess I'm the only one who likes them, then. If I had some money to blow and had a band that's into weird stage antics, I'd get one.

    you've heard of a 1 trick pony?


    This is a 1 joke guitar.


    I'm guessing that single joke would wear thin fast.

    For me it took about .5 seconds.

    It's been about six months since I first discovered the guitar, and I still find it to be an interesting and unique concept. Kudos to the maker for having the balls to put something so backwards on the market. Might be worth a "buy a bass and pass it around TB soon..."
