Stumbled on these cats on Instagram: really love their MGS3.



All maple, really ace looking. One of the few modern designs that I think moves guitar design forward while paying homage to classic shapes and styling (like Fran always moans about with contemporary Fender/Gibson). They're only on Instagram and facebook at the moment. LOVE that cutout on the headstock.

I nearly really like it. Body looks a little bloated though, like it could do with being just a bit more curvy and a bit less straight. Might be the colour.

Like the neck and headstock (a lot), not keen on the body shape

Oh aye this is cool. Just had a look at some of their other designs as well, very interesting. All very blocky, but I'm into it.

CAD$1700. Bodies are pretty contoured of you look at the other shots.

I like the look of the MB4 bass, especially in the natural maple stain.

That's not too bad considering the design and how they're made. Pickups look cool too. Definitely would love to try one out.

I like it.

Looks like something Keith Levene would have used in PIL, and reminds me a bit of that rectangular Danelectro model (that I never remember the name of).
I imagine it has some kool sonds as well.

Negatives? Pricey and it could be a pain to play sat down.

I think the guy is friends with New Brutalism and was originally inspired by their aluminium obstructures

Got a lustin' for one of these.

I kinda fancied an Obstructures, mainly due to the aesthetics, but couldn't justify the cost, or the fact they're heavyasfuck. Plus from an aluminium guitar point of view, there's not much I'd want different over my egc, other than slightly lighter I guess.

These tick the functionality/brutalism/design box, plus being so thin they must be pretty light (I used to play an Ibanez S which was nice and thin). Also the design feature of neck through(ish)/neck mounted bridge is cool and works well on others I've played.

Plus, kinda reasonably priced given the level of work that goes into what is basically a custom guitar.

I like those in a really utilitarian way... looks like you could use it to dig a snow hole if you crashed in the Arctic.
