Exclamation Someone is asking 1,000,000.00 for a guitar!

Elliott Dean Power Guitar - Best Guitar Ever Yet Built - eBay (item 260743806169 end time Mar-27-11 19:43:49 PDT)

This guy put an amp in a Dean acoustic guitar, his effort has never been done before in human history, so he is asking for 1M for it, is a barging is you look at it in from the angle that no other human being on this earth or other earths in the universe have had this idea before, check the videos of it, it sound far better then any old prewar martin or any 59 Les paul you have heard, this is possible the best guitar or musical instrument in existence, it even sounds better then a piano or stradivarius. Its that good.

Check the videos out, BUT BE CAUTIONED your ears and brain may explode from this divine sound.

There's no such thing as bad publicity.

Why do I get the feeling he works in Gibson's R&D department?

J.J.Cale's guitar - Harmony H162 "a bit modified".
Mid seventies, and sounded a lot better - in JJ's hands.....

That's really wild! Wish I had the know-how (and ambition) to create something crazy like that.
