    From the website: "It was conceived as a single body from which superfluous material has been removed."

    Maybe I'm just old school but I've never considered the mass of the guitar body to be superflous.

    "Destined to transform the face of music."

    It's the ears I'm worried about. :D

    Seriously, it is kinda unique looking.

    2800 bones.

    hmm :rolleyes:

    not for me.

    Indeed!
    I see no connection of Yorkville to that site and it appears to be Euro.

    Light weight, impervious to weather, nigh indestructable... very cool, love to see innovations like this. Given that composite manufacturing seems to be getting easier and many tonewoods are becoming scarce, would be surprised if we don't see more composite guitars in the coming years. Obviously not for everyone, but if the tone kicks ass, think there will at least be some converts, given the advantages.

    Um - unique - but it looks a multiple swimming pools in an apartment block. :)

    Yorkville's the soon to be announced Western distributor through their ALTO line. Strange that this will come about, but from a very reliable source. NAMM release in the US.

    i thought yorkville dropped alto ..still seems wrong.
    as they distribue epiphone and gibson in canada seems odd to take a risk on this kinda thing with IMHO nothing going for it but the gimmick
    if i were them i would stick with Gibson and epi and leave that sack O ___ alone

    THe Yorkville site plainly displays the ALTO lines as of 1 minute ago. THough the release of this guitar is slated for the NAMM Show.

    Canadian guitar buyers have been asking for an eu-made carbon fiber guitar for a while now... Especially one that's destined to change the face of music!

    I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not, but it's definitely a thing.

    Too bad, sorta. I'd try one and buy it, if it was cheap (not!)....I'm like that!

    Well at least we won`t be asking for x rays to see if it`s weight relieved.
