    Their domain 660guitars.com has an invalid DNS record ... that could also indicate cash flow problems, lol.

    Fiddler I'm especially proud of. I did the restoration of "Any Day Now" from less than stellar sources.

    Here is an aluminum guitar with graphite/carbon fiber neck for the tele lovers.. A guy in the town outside of where I grew up builds these. Not cheap. I played one at a local store in Rolla MO. The sales guy said he had switched to one and that he just leaves it in the trailer and it stays in tune - regardless of any temperature swings. It actually played really nice, but one would expect that for $2300.

    I’m kind of diggin the V. I used to have a yellow Polaris Flying V. The headstock broke of when it got knocked over. If I ever find another one, I’m buying it. It had sentimental value. But I would try one of those aluminum ones if I could get it for a few hundred bucks. I just love yellow V’s.

    My friend had a Kramer aluminum neck electric six string when I was in high school. It was ugly and played like crap. But I wouldn’t mind having the aluminum neck Kramer bass that John Deacon had in a video I saw. It looked cool to me.

    Sorry, but to me they look like plastic toys. Must be the paint.
    They might look better in chrome. Maybe.

    Unlike the ones in the OP, those Trussarts look like real guitars.

    That Britney Spears poster will be worth more than all of them combined in 25 years.

    They are. My friend Danny Harvey used to live with James at his "factory". Those are stellar guitars.

    'Liquidated', or 'liberated'... as in 'fell off the truck'?
    And yes, Trussart guitars are the real deal.
