Anybody ever try this guitar? Wow, one of the most unusual I have seen.

It seems that "guitar" was made by a man suffering from women and George W. Bush?

Funny! I wonder how it might sound. No question on playability! :D

It looks awful - but I'd love to hear how it sounds. It might help to settle the debate about how the string pull/top angle affects tone and volume. I notice this guitar is not referred to on his website. Is this because it was not a great success in terms of tone? Has anyone heard anything about how it sounds? Harp-like, perhaps?

Interesting, but I believe it can only negotiate surrealistic music. :grire:

I heard him say somewhere that - that was why he built it.
Supposedly it does have a harp-like tone
Very creative inlay artist - I'm pretty sure thats not George

Well, atleast it looks nice. I would love to play that guitar, just to hear what it sounds like. Might be harplike, but on the other hand, what would i know about the design of guitar. Sweet inlays.
