===================================================


Woods really don't make all that much difference in an electric guitar, after all...



This one is an aluminum frame. Travis Bean guitars were neck-through aluminum (everything from tuners to tailpiece was mounted on aluminum, with the body sort of slapped on around that neck). Dan Armstrong guitars were built of Plex, as have others since them. We've seen granite guitars:



This guitar just cements the fact that woods are unimportant and seems to block any argument otherwise... Smiley

I think the comment was made that it weighed no more than an LP...

I've seen many conventions that have tried to break us from tonewood. One has yet to dot it. But I'd be interested to see any real competition.

Stonetone technologies uses a wide variety of granites and other stones to achieve optimum performance naturally with the least amount of signal loss.

We have made many prototypes like the Dean Cadillac viewed above as the 1st. From that guitar weighing 14lbs. The models I'm making now are all between 5 1/2 lbs. to 8 1/2 lbs maxx.

This technology applies to all stringed instruments.
I have many more pics I'll post soon.

It's kinda cool to see new technologies and all, but really, guitarists tend to like old amps, with traditional guitars (wood). Just my opinion.
