GUEST,Anne Croucher Stainless steel guitar Ooooo!! (30) RE: Stainless steel guitar Ooooo!! 20 Oct 04

The neck - Hmmm

I can just visualise it -

slender D shaped rings held in place by six fine metal rods, the flats holding the frets. There would be a clear plastic medium which connected the rods and rings and which glowed different colours under tension/compression.

On the head, each of the six rods would tension one or two strings. Suspended between them prisms and holographic reflectors would cover the mechanism to adjust the neck's position relative to the body and the fine shaping of it.

Was it Asimov who had 'beautiful boys with bright red guitars, in the spaces beween the stars'?

Though making a high tensile strength guitar would make smashing them as part of the act a bit difficult - but its been done.

Smashing everything else on stage might be an option though.

I have heard one of the real ones refered to as a Barnsley fighting guitar - on the TV. It would knock Hell out of battling banjoes.

Biddy bong bong bong bong bing bong - CRUNCH.
