    Cool looking guitars, maybe the coolest looking banjos ever on there too. Pricey but they look very original and high quality from the pics.

    These look alot like the Ritter basses. Phil Lesh's (Grateful dead) new bass is a Ritter (www.ritter-basses.com), complete with fancy LED fret markers. There are some photo's milling around on www.philzone.com I do believe. It is pretty slick. I was up-front at a show recently and he was modeling it for some people during the setbreak, and then for the crowd.

    I definately like that vibe on the Becker guitars....

    Kind of a Carl Thompson vibe. ( Les Claypool )

    Also, I used to have an old 48th street custom guitar catalog years and years ago with some guitars shaped sort of like some of the becker guitars.

    I'm really not feeling most of his designs, but that Retro-Grad is tasty!

    I like this one

    and this one
    [​IMG]

    but only in that color

    none of em seem to have trems - so you have a conservative sound palette in a wild looking guitar - thats weird.


    this is kind of Alembic looking

    price ought to be around $4000
    not $6000
