Foldable guitar...

So, I saw this Swedish guitar from DeVillan guitars, which claims to be the frist foldable guitar in the world.

It even (supposedly) stays in tune after the folding process (i.e. if it's in tune before you fold it, it should be in tune when you unfold it), which sounds a bit too good to be true.

Sure, this seem to be practical for people who travels a lot, but this guitar made me think of two things:

  1. How is the sustain of this bad boy? Sure all that metal and hinges got to suck out all the sustain?
  2. I recall seeing a picture of Øystein Sunde with a foldable acoustic guitar over his shoulder, many years ago. So this couldn't be the first foldable guitar?

Here's what I'm thinking:

1) Bull$hit
2) Bull$hit
3) Bull$hit
4) What kind of dork would want this?
5) Øystein Sunde's guitar might not have been possible to re-fold?
6) Bull$hit
7) If you play metal with this abomination, you will get the asskicking you so richly deserve.
8) Bull$hit
9) Somehow I doubt this freakshow is available with a floating bridge
10) Bull$hit

So, do you think it's useful or is it just bull$hit?

5) Øystein Sunde's guitar might not have been possible to re-fold?

Mmmh. That would be the Pete Townshend way of folding a guitar, wouldn't it?

I'm inclined to believe that this particular product is 100%, grade A guaran-damn-teed bull$hit

Oh, don't hold back. Tell us what you really mean. ;-)
