      This company makes some genius Guitars and the orginal were designed with help form steve albini

      I own #24 which is an all alumium SG and also the guy has been working on some outrageus wodden body aluminium neck strat that he has been doing for like 18 months now as it a bit of a beast

    • thats cool
      whats that guitar like of yours? ive been interested in these for a while but am not totaly sure if i can justify the expense.

    • they sound amazing but are proper heavy. i guess that's why albini wears his around the waist so his legs take the weight and not his back.

      he's only little.

      if they weighed less i'd be in there like a rat up a drainpipe.

      i saw bearclaw (in their top friends) a few weeks back. fella plays one of their basses. sounds unreal.

    • if you look at the pictures folder on there there is picture of an sg that not my one but it looks similar to that one

      to be honest its been in its case in the corner of my room for 2 years it sound indredible but its painful to play unless you have a better strap system

      im looking forward to finally getting my strat whenever its ready

    • I almost ordered a third one

    • richard snogger has an aluminium 3/4 flying v bass.

      its well ugly and well neck heavy. good to laugh at though

    • They look pretty insane, love the lucite one. I know I shouldn't ask, but what kinda price are they?
    •  SheldonSheldon
    • i think it depends what one you go for

      the price lsit is on one of the blogs
    •  alanalan
    • Oh yeah. Eep.
    •  SheldonSheldon
    • you may possibly get a much cheaper deal dealing directly with the guy in the states but then again after import duty maybe not.....
