For goodness sake... :roll: The words 'bottom', 'barrel' and 'scraping' come to mind.

Making oars out of necks isn't gonna give guitarists "unparalleled expression". The only upside seems to be bending the E , but that's about it. I wonder who'll end up buying this , for its price too..
And anyone think the guy in the demo video looks like the actor, david morse ?? :D

thats the stupidest thing i've ever seen

to play better and come up with good stuff your hands need to comfortably be fast and able at the top of the neck- not have an addition 3"" of wood in your way so your playing in an unfortable situation like you're trying to play where your 3rd string is but its really your high e

useless

It would be fine if you only bent the high e and b stings. A controlled bend on the low e or a strings looks like a bit of a bitch.

you have to wait till 5.05 in the video to finally hear the supposed advantage, well if at least the guy could demonstrate anything worth watching..the expression "monkey's fart" comes to mind.

Well, that was a bit absurd. I didn't see where his "examples" of how to use that neck were that revolutionary, especially for 2k. I give him props for sticking his neck out and trying something different though.

lol, he`s playing is not that bad and it`s not relevant here anyway

although it helps with e bending I think you don`t gain as much as you lose...so I`ll pass :mrgreen:
