A guitar I wouldn't shred.

I’ve never had any interest in playing the guitar, let alone taking the time to learn how. Many of my friends and readers do play the guitar and I thought they might be interested in these.

Even I wouldn’t mind owning one of these, just for the artistic value. The guy that made these guitars has some serious wood working talent.

Some of those a frickin' sweet...

I wonder how much the tonal quality is affected. Most of a guitar's sound comes from the wood itself.

Regardless, that's some incredible talent.

If I bought something like that it would be for display only. I tried to take guitar lessons when I was in my early 20s. I went and talked to a friend that taught lessons. He had me hold his guitar and told me I would have to learn on a 'junior' guitar... my fingers are too short for a regular guitar. Kid's guitar... nope... didn't happen.

Well, since every guitar I play sounds like crap, I'm sure it wouldn't effect it at all!
