Here's another stunning guitar to drool over, (and another I'd play in my dreams,) It's the 'Modernaire' by Jesselli guitars.

….wow....that is one beautiful thing! I don't usually comment on guitars here because I know pretty much nothing about them - but that is something else! If it were reimagined as a piece of furniture, then it would be a stylish Art Deco corner cabinet set in some equally stylish drinks room in an early 20th Century Modernist house.....it just has that kind of connection for me :wink:

…...what a beauty!!

Bill I came across this on YouTube and thought it might be interesting for you:

They certainly have some interesting guitar designs and Brad (the guitarologist) can twiddle with the best of them.

All the best

Chris

Just bought this on Reverb. It's a Switch Wild I made from Vibracell and designed by Trevor Wilkinson from around 2005. Apparently Switch were a short-lived company who came up with this innovative synthetic material with great resonance properties. Sadly, their business model was not good and they folded after only a couple of years.
Here's their description of Vibracell: A patented process of completely molding both electric and bass guitars including the neck and headstock, from the patented Switch Vibracell material creating an instrument with precise harmonic resonance and sound frequency. Vibracell allows the entire instrument to be created as a whole with complete control of neck, body weight and density by controlling the internal cells. With the ability to control the cells we can effectively tune the body and neck to exceed the characteristics and response of those instruments made from the best available woods in the world. Additionally, Vibracell has the pure strength to withstand extreme temperature changes that affect traditional wooden bodies and necks.
The ability to control the cells density allows the neck to be formed with the body as one piece. Vibracell allows a true one piece neck-through design that eliminates the gluing of two half bodies to the neck. The one piece neck-thru body approach allows for energy to be transmitted through the entire body not only with extreme efficiency, but at a higher rate of speed ultimately delivering pure sustain and clarity.
