    so what your saying is, he'll make some incredible guitar oriented music vids, not be able to play it live, then out of nowhere try to become the singer and ask stevie t to be his bassist?

    Same... and maybe not related but the "funny" gets cancelled out pretty quickly for me when I see someone experiencing that much pure joy while playing... and so much of a connection with their instrument. Seems that this guy absolutely cherishes this guitar and I think that's pretty cool.

    I guess I'll eat my words if I see it listed on ebay next week ;)

    I genuinely don't think I'd take it even for free. I honestly don't think it being free would make me want it in my guitar collection.

    Bolin is something of a legend, he's built guitars for pretty much every significant guitarist in the last few decades, regardless of what it says on the headstock.

    These goofy builds are pretty much the only way to get them as all the "normal" guitars are either even more expensive or owned by celebrities.

    Someone will eventually buy this just to say they own a Bolin.

    Not justifying anything, but there significant equity in who the builder is here.

    What the actual fuck? I'm guessing quasi functional art piece? The neck is absolutely useless with that aluminum "stand" on it... And why did we choose to fret all of that excess fretboard? Sense. This guitar makes none.

    Why would you do this to a perfectly good Jem? That string geometry is painful.

    That guitar face is priceless. I wish I loved playing smooth jazz that much. I'd be up to my eyeballs in 4 and 5 star restaurant gigs.

    I know where the idea came from. But that high E is in danger of not have any fretboard beneath it by the 24th fret... Steve has always had questionable taste in fashion and aesthetics.

    He's a new-agey hippie wizard man, playing new-agey hippie wizard music, so he dresses like a new-agey hippie wizard man. All my questions are answered as soon as he starts playing.

    Nice but I feel there is potential for more. A microwave often uses a tube amplification so I want to see a built-in amp that uses the same circuit.

    I hope it would be called the "Magnetocaster".
