Look at the bridge in that last pic!! Just begging to rip your hand open.

Sounds a MILLION times better than I thought it would. Interesting idea.

Wow...

1) Non-angled pickups on a fanned-fret guitar.

2) The neck is sunk too deep into the body, look how high the action is in the last pic with the bridge cranked all the way down.

3) Control layout looks like it would annoy the hell out of me.

Other than that, cool idea, and it does look neat. I think Fender tried this once too.

Also, this thread is in the wrong forum section.

When I saw the thread title I thought, cool, a stone guitar. Didn't dream it would interest me in any other way. Fanned frets, 8 strings? I like it
The sustain is incredible. One of the comments on the videos mentioned incorporating stone into a wooden guitar. I like this idea a LOT.

Wow, that's pretty interesting. I wonder how much it weighs, as well.

I bet it's not neck heavy.

I think he said 15 kilos, or about 33 lbs, in the thread linked in the OP.

Well, he know knows what it would be like to strap three and a half Les Pauls to himself.

Though, I'd be curious if it would be possible to shave down that top, it would probably solve both weight and action issues.

In theory stone is similar in wood, as it has a certain "structure" to it, kinda like grain in wood.

If I had to guess, I'd say it would vary from different types of stone, just like different woods vary.

It's going to take more sound pressure to move a piece of stone than it will a piece of wood. However, as with anything, it's only going to resonate at specific frequencies, and unless you're using contact microphones on the body, the resonance of the body is not going to matter, anyway.
