dex I knew what guitar you were talking about straight away.
I got the new Giutar Player and also fell in love with the thing.
It just looks awesome.
Haven't seen one yet, but the looks alone make me want to own it.
Hope it plays as well as it looks.

GAS sets in.................

I don't know why I'm so drawn to it, but I've been looking for a hollowbody for a while (I play more jazz gigs than rock gigs these days). This seems like a guitar that would have a jazzier tone but still feel somewhat familiar.

Anyway, has anybody played one of these? If so, any comments?

If it's anything like their other guitars, it should play like a dream. I'm in love with the Godin Multiac.
