    RELISH guitar

    Thought this looked interesting enough to share.

    I often wondered why no one ever designed a guitar that could be fully serviced other than the string mount assemblies without the need to remove the strings. I guess someone else did too. Looks nice, sounds nice, fun design... I like it. I'm skeptical about how practical it is to be able to swap out the pickups though. Most guitars sound and feel right to a player in a certain way and then that's how they get used. In that scenario there's usually a "right pickup for the job" and you wouldn't want a different one. But whatever's clever.

    Cool, but they lost me at "battery." So why don't they just add a jack so you can power yer geetawr from your pedal power supply? I would...

    PU quick change solutions from the back are not new. In the 90s (I think) Gibson distribution centers could order a Les Paul Custom that allowed different PUs premounted on mahogany blocks to be clipped into matching slots from the back. Great for demonstrating/comparing different PUs, magnets etc.
    I know someone (a former Gibson sales/marketing manager - now an acknowledged PU manufacturer) who owns one of these. Might ask him for pictures.

    Relish are cool, like the bent maple neck too, but they cost $6000


    They had an electro luminescent balance strip for the PUs at one point but seem to have ditched it, silly Swiss

    My local music store had some on display for a while so I played one a little, not plugged in. Didn't like it at all.

    I think mentioning CERN instead of cheese would have been more in line with offering 'tech cred' about the guitar

    edit: yes, interesting video. Fun!

    The original Dan Armstrong Clear Acrylic guitars had plug in pickups that just slid in at an angle. They just snapped in and had hard mounted “banana” plugs. I loved mine.. One of the first 24 fret electrics. BUT.. The lower horn on those always seemed to be bruising my forearm and they were pretty heavy.

    Yeah, that's what the name seems to imply. But all they state here https://relish.swiss/innovation/bent-neck/ is:

    "Relish Guitars’ headstocks and necks are carved out of one single piece of wood and bolted directly into the aluminium frame. This unity of headstock and neck results in higher resonance and a nearly unbreakable bent neck. Say goodbye to broken headstocks. Trust me, we tried."

    And guitar necks being "carved out of one single piece of wood" are quite common.

    Don't have the faintest idea what this means. (Straight English is already enough of a challenge to me.)
    Adresses to whom?

    I think this is regarding the "unbreakable headstock" claim.

    Thanks for trying to help. But what is "farkin' pansies"?

    Testosterone challenged individuals would be one diplomatic translation.
    Or as one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's characters put it: 'girlie-men'.

    F@$#ing ?μ$$¡€$!

    What I meant was, if you show Pete Townshend an "unbreakable" guitar, he'd reply that the manufacturer didn't try hard enough, that they are weaklings for their inability to break it, then ask it be handed to him for a try.

    I don't think Pete T. would have favoured an indestructible guitar. His thing was visible destruction as a "happening" (probably inspired by mad Keith Moon) to outperform someone like J. Hendrix.
