    "Excellent !
    You just have to add a really, really big bumper to it" .

    ..and an airbag!

    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.
