The first problem I see with a Volvo Guitar is if you go to break it on the stage, the stage will take untold amounts of damage, but at least the guitar should be perfectly fine.

Should'nt the guitar be a little more Boxey shaped.
:-))

Oh hell yeah, this is great. Keep it up!

A Volvo guitar is like a Harley Davidson euphonium.

Live the dream.

Thank you Friend !
Some people ASK me to share sample ... OK I will ...
That song is record with this guitar and Marshall Valvestate /8040/, without effects ... only with amp - overdrive !
I think the guitar sound`s GREAT !
