    So, what do you guys think about this...
    I JUST saw this, and I'm still rollin it over in my mind... The only thing I'm sure of is that I don't dig piezo pickups... The only expierence I've got is with acoustic/electrics, though... I guess it'd be nice to have a couple EQ options with one, though...
    It IS a cool trick that the whole back pops off and you can change pickups in literally 3 seconds... Lol, heck, he changed the bridge pup WHILE he was playin the neck pup... That's pretty cool, man...

    It's like the demonstration guitars that Gibson et al used to make for the salesman to carry around in a suitcase. Pup in different pickups to hear the differences.

    Interesting, thought never worked for Armstrong... of course an acrylic body and whatnot had other things going on too.

    Yeah, the price pretty much kills it for me... I'm not like most people, but IF I was
    gonna spend $600 to $1000 for a guitar, with spending that much, I guess I'd have to go with a "proven" company, and a classic design (Tele, Strat, LP, etc) that I loved...
    If it was cheaper, now...

    Very cool, but soldering pickups in my basement is one of my favorite stress relievers.

    I guess it would be fun to have, but I doubt it would be my main guitar.

    nice, would never spend that kind of money on it unless I wanted it to show my friends and have them say "wow cool", and put it back in the case and pull out my Fender and begin playing.

    Wow, I’m usually the stick in the mud who can’t handle change, but I’ve gotta say, I was impressed. I thought it sounded great, and it wasn’t bad looking either. I dig it.

    I dig it as well. The idea of having only one guitar is fantastic for people who don't have a lot of space (btw I think the Variax concept is interesting as well for that reason).

    I really wanted to hate this but couldn't. Some people drool over a 2019 Nissan GT-R and others want a '66 GTO but most can generally at least appreciate the other. Guitars are no different. If I wasn't more of a traditionalist and less driven by sentimentality, why not?

    Yeah, a little hefty in the price, but a really good concept and execution. Having the wiring done through the pickup ring is clever.

    IIRC, an S-T member was kicking around the idea of a guitar with quickly interchangeable pickups last year.

    I'm kinda a "traditionalist" in many senses as far as guitars go, the most "unique" guitar I own is a BMG Special, it's pretty sweet. At this point I have my tonal bases pretty well covered, don't need any more guitars (although am awaiting delivery of a mid '60's Harmony H15 Bobkat)...if I had the money to burn, I'd entertain the idea of buying is indeed an interesting concept in a few ways :cool:

    Relish guitars is based just a five minutes drive from my home. At the 11. of may they are doing the "The relish guitar & beer fest". As you can see in the picture there are two glasses of beer, a guitar and a sausage. I think i know what i do at this date.

    That's weird, lol... Cause attempting to solder pickups in my kitchen is one of my main stress CAUSERS, lol...
    Naw, I've gotten better at it... I do need to get a better iron and soldering station... I just started modding about a year ago and I ordered one of those cheap irons off Amazon... The 2nd time I used it, the temperature adjuster gauge fell off, and the 3rd time I used it, the tip fell off and I had to wedge it back to limp through that job, lol...
    If I had a decent iron, I can see where it would be fun and stress relieving...
