    I normally don’t care for extreme designs but this one just works. The luthier who crafted this is named Michihiro Matsuda. He calls it the deconstruction guitar.

    I would have designed a pickup with more curves, but I love this. I love it when people re-imagine standard designs.

    Could have been designed by Pablo Picasso.

    Or a split-type pup...one for the plain strings and another closer to the bridge for the wound strings. If you're going to "deconstruct" the guitar, might as well do it to the pup as well.

    Ha! I met the designer at NAMM and spent some time with one. It is a remarkable guitar, with some really quirky features. The paint is textured, with some weird fuzziness to it. Some of those round disks are momentary buttons. One is a kill switch, one adds 60 cycle hum, like a broken cable, but really loud, the other activates a small microphone in the body wired into the pickups creating a feedback loop. When you press it, you get loud microphonic squeal through the amp! That's just crazy to me. It was a really fun guitar to play, but at $12k, nope.

    The Claas Leviathan has a extreme shape in a slightly different way! Click image for larger version.

    I think these Relish guitars are very cool but a bit pricy as expected. The idea of hot-swappable pickups is cool.

    I dig the super-modern designs, as long as it still sounds good, the balance is right, and they get the weight down. I don't see going against tradition just for the sake of it, but there can be a lot of issues in traditional design that needs to be looked at with fresh modern eyes.
