That sounds like it a possible tragedy waiting to happen.

Additional weight on the headstock to increase sustain?

Of course you know that the blow of that ball might scare you (innate reflex) and you may cut some part of your body?

Re: What is a pool ball made of ?

Ah man, sorry for my last post. I didn't understand what you exactly meant. For some reason I thought you wanted to cut one of theese:



Hmm a swimming pool is a pool too

BTW It looks cool.

Re: What is a pool ball made of ?

I don't think cutting it is the problem. Holding it while you cut it will be. I guess if you only want one half of it you could drill into one side and mount it on a block of wood to hold it as you cut ???

I just about cut my thumb off (left hand) years back on a table saw. I luckilly didn't have the blade through the table high enough - but it cut into the bone. Big red stripe on the t shirt !!

Couldn't play guitar for months.

Be careful.

Your a little late. I just held the thing in my hands and rolled it thru.
A tile saw won't cut your hand very easily even if you touch the blade.

Okay, so you got it cut and mounted...but did you ever figure out what it's made of?

Made out of some hard ass synthetic stuff. Maybe they should make guitars out of it. Of course they would weigh who knows what, a lot.

Dammit I thought Slacky was back!

Slacky makes that SG sing. Especially when he plays slow with feeling.

As I remember from my misspent youth.

Red and yellow balls is Snooker or English >billiards<

Pool, is with the colored/numbered balls.

Aren't pool balls made from nitrocellulose?

eta: they apparently once were, but are now made from phenolic resin for reasons of manufacturing safety.
