    There's a Korean company that makes acrylic strat-shaped things for $300 or so, can't remember the name. Apparently they weight quite a bit. Kinda tacky looking IMO.

    When I used to surf ebay I noticed some acrylic guitars made under the Galveston brand name.....an SG and a V. Looked interesting. Don't see too many of the Dan Armstrong acrylic guitar's or basses lately.....Those were apparently available from time to time.

    I can play clearly now the wood is gone,
    No more splinters from the buckle rash.

    Everybody's gonna love my tone,
    The wood is gone, gone,
    Organic free play.

    "I can play clearly now the wood is gone"

    Things are always a bit clearer once the wood is gone.

    I have read that acrylic-body guitar's sound somewhat like mahogany. I don't necessarily believe that. But then again I've never tried one. One of these day's I might....if I find one cheap cheap....but I haven't seen one in person in all my years LOL.

    A buddy of mine got a Galveston acrylic Flying V in a trade. It weighs as much as my amp.

    Electrical Guitar Company - Electrical Guitar Company | The finest aluminum instruments
    These guys specialize in aluminum guitars, though they do make acrylics bodies as well (and wood sometimes!) Guitars so nice, Steve Albini actually said something positive!

    If you go to Models | Electrical Guitar Company and scroll down to "EGC DS" you can see their acrylic-bodied SG-type thing. I'd love to have one in aluminum.
