    You know, that's actually fairly well executed from the looks of it.

    The thing that gets me is now having two bridges, and they look nothing alike.

    Insta trying to sell me one of these... I gotta admit, it's unique at least.

    I can't get over how it's obviously shaped like an uppercase "B". Also I can't figure out if the upper frets are playable. I watched a video of a guy playing one but he didn't go up very high. Also why on some models the pickups stick out too far or alternatively aren't under some strings.

    These guitars are very well thought and cheap in the build, just a regular neck that could be sourced out somewhere and a bent sheet of metal of body. These are not a Shredder guitar, these are not meant to be play-able all across the fretboard.

    Regarding the pickups, they can be moved around since they stick magnetically to the "body". This last one is setup like a face just for the photo. They are in fact ingeniously thought, but they are not for the SSO's general market...

    Somebody wanna give me a link? I kinda want to order one. :lol:

    EDIT: Hard pass. I'm not into them enough to spend the $2000+ to get one. Still, I'm impressed with the movable pickups.

    ^^^ It's as if some guitars are designed just for the sole purpose of pissing people off.

    It's a designer's guitar for those who appreciate (and can afford) designed products, but these are way too high priced to be even sold. I'm not sure how or if the brand is making any money. In the end, it's just for the novelty and for well payed guitar player / collector, I'm not seeing those in shows nor in studios...

    awwww, cute! It is like a a parent wanted a BC Rich warlock for their kid, but didn't want to scare the kid's church music leader with a satanic-looking guitar.

    I got a blister on my little finger, and maybe on my thumb.

    They look awesome af and the concept is really cool. However, no headless option, no multiscale, no 8 string, no fishmans, no evertune is kindof a deal breaker.
