... Presumably a beer that uses non animal product derived finings.
Not knocking you in anyway of course, veganism as a life choice takes quite a bit of dedication IMHO, so hats off.
So. I'm late to the thread. To me it is a mystery why anyone would want an electric guitar made with hide glue. I suppose it is historical accuracy that is important but after maintaining my upright bass for years and having to heat/melt/apply/thin hide glue on a regular basis I can't imagine the benefit of making it part of a solid-body instrument.
I'm sure there is a mystique to having the spirit of a dead horse reside in your guitar. Where are the sound files so I can hear the difference?
Yes.Vegetarian/vegan beer is easy to find - just avoid the awful tinned stuff 25 years a veggie here although I'm not vegan. I enjoy pizza too much for that!
Back to the guitar, Mother of Pearl inlays are possibly a worse problem for a vegan than use of hide glue.... I know USA are acrylic but do the custom shop use MOP?
Just so you know, no animals are slaughtered in the process. Hide glue is usually made from the hides of animals (horses) that have died of natural causes.
To the OP kudos and still too your beliefs....
My dream guitar was always a Eric Johnson Stratocaster, I was just about to pick one up and noticed the kokopelli on the neckplate.
My religious beliefs, I refuse to own a guitar that has or ever has had a pagan god on it.....so I understand where you are coming from.
