Neck- Headstock Joint on USRG
that's great! i have to say it: envy corrodes me!!
that's the thing i don't get about marketing: people will be happy to pay extra for a useless animal named hole in their guitar, but i guess if their charged more for useful *technologies like these, the response wouldn't be so good.
there are important advances in materials technologies that would be great, i'm not saying lets make a carbon guitar, but for instance, there are polymers that can make the edges of tremolos and saddles virtually last forever
(excuse me for the jem comment, i love them! and if i saw a samick guitar made of plastic with one string with vai's name, i would get it, i'm just saying you can actually make improvements without making a guitar that seems out of the jetsons)
