    "It is still the only guitar in the world reaching these notes with frets."

    No. It's not even the fourth.

    The amount of switches and knobs on it and the sympathetic bass strings make me think it has to be a joke.

    Yes, it's like the kid that gets into the parent's makeup. Everything is simultaneously right and wrong. I initially thought, "Why is this here?" and then I looked more closely.

    Super polished gigantic custom frets, old as hell never strings that have never been changed. Sounds like..... fuck all

    Makes me think of an inverted railroad, where the tracks are wood and the ties are metal.

    I bet that thing would be fun to play, though, for maybe only 5 minutes, but still, it's a cool idea for however ridiculous it is.

    Someone should make a sitar with a scalloped fretboard. (the frets on a sitar are like 2" high, so the chance of anyone ever touching the fretboard wood is nil).

    Or, even better, a Gitler guitar with a scalloped fretboard.

    That may make a good slide guitar, no?

    I don't see why, you don't want frets getting in the way for slide. That's why you see sky high action on slide conversions and even no actual frets, just markers, on purpose built slide instruments like lap steels.

    This. You can buy "conversion nut" things to make a guitar better for slide, and it raises the nut, not the frets. I bought one for my cheap acoustic, but have been afraid to put it on for fear of folding the guitar at the nut. :rofl:

    I've slapped them on some janky acoustics and it's not a problem. Slide away!

    My favorite comment from that post I saw on IG: "Why so series?"
