Interesting!  Although their design sense doesn't exactly overwhelm me![:D]

Hey ~/,

Very cool.  I too wish they had more ambitious design elements.  If the Jakkerman was 24.75" scale and weighed a pound or 2 less, it would be worth checking out.  (24 fret Les Paul killer! [:0][:p][8D])  I'd love to see a soundcompound guitar shaped like an Ibanez JS or S (semi-airfoil body); that would have to cut the weight down considerably.  Really reasonable prices considering advanced technology...

You know there might be some truth to this material but their arguments and explanation is so bad as to be laughable. And their designs are totally derivative nothing new just copies of Strats and LP pathetic.[xx(]

You know, after reading up on the nXt, combined with a really realistic price, I'm a little intrigued.  (It weighs 6.4 pounds, so it's no Flyweight, but it's lighter than my Strat by a pound and a half.)  [;)][:0][:I]

If only it looked good... [:p]

Pathetic hits it on the head. Why they can't come up with a design that is fresh and new (not weird) is beyond me. One of the reasons I've always liked Ken's ideas is that he is not out there copying! I just don't think it should be that hard to come up with unique shapes for a composite or solid body guitar.

It may be year before a next innovative design like the Fly catches on.  Just think how long it took to go from Strat to Fly.  It's only natural that it will occur.
