    Not mine, but posted on his FB page. Acrylic body, LEDs, etc. I have a 60s Dan Armstrong, but this is a whole 'nother level.

    I think that's beautiful. Where/how much (I couldn't find any clear guitars like this one on his site)?

    I think that's beautiful too. I've asked him about pricing/availability. I love his guitars. He has some very cool designs. I'll likely end up ordering something from him later this year.

    I'm having trouble processing the disconnect between a completely modern-themed aesthetic and a 17th century body shape. An F-hole and LEDs? Seriously..?

    This guitar screams Japanese pop. Lots of the ESP sigs and custom guitars sold in Japan have this kind of baroque shape mixed with modernism.

    I think that's what makes it cool. It's like a futuristic space takeover of what started as a 17th century body shape.

    Modern baroque has been happening for a while now.

    goes without saying, you can't get that tone from the new stuff.

    I'm pretty sure there's a slightly more traditional wooden version of that on his site or fb page.

    a couple of weeks ago I posted something about how cool and cohesive his whole aesthetic was.... and then this gets posted. it's like he's laughingin my face. I like it.

    the control plates are really cool.

    I like it.

    I might prefer a different shape, but it's very well executed.

    A single-cut, acrylic fiddle. I like it.
