    I would assume a rather large bank account would be needed to purchase this, but WOW. ENJOY!!!

    Meh, interesting concept but a swing and a miss. You can always tell how proud of something they are by how long you get to look at the item. Well you never really get to look at it too long in that vid.

    How cool! Finally a guitar with a clutch pedal. I'm going to start a GoFundMe to buy one.

    I noticed Steve Saleen. I thought he lost his company.

    He never lost anything, he walked away from the company over 10 years ago after some investors made a mess of everything, then came back to reclaim Saleen a few years later, rebuilding it up to what it is today.

    The build itself on this guitar is pretty amazing, it's a huge departure from the rest of FCS has done in recent years, including Ron Thorne. The use of composite materials etc, and all the small details. I think it's cool, but don't have that kind of scratch! $$

    Carbon fiber fretboard for authentic Saleen feel and probably unplayable guitar feel...

    And yup, I’d go for a Kid Shelleen Strat. If it exists though, @fezz parka probably has it already.

    Interesting...


    They should have made a 1000W Amp to go with it and match the car's horse power.

    Well, I'm a car guy at heart and I loved it! What an awesome concept guitar.
