Isn't it amazing that we see so many copies of Strats, Teles and Paulas and that only few luthiers are willing to create something new from the scratch? Ned Steinberger springs to my mind and maybe Paul Reed Smith (who wins the award for designing the best looking guitar). But now look at this .
At first I thought the Birdfish looks downright ugly but now I tend to say it looks ... errmm ... "interesting".
Coming with two swamp ash (blue) and two maple (red) resonator bars (brown mahogany resonators come as option, I have heard), two single coil PUs and three humbuckers - all easily replace-, shift- and tiltable - the guitar is incredibly versatile.
I have heard it and the closest the sound is getting to is actually a modern Strat (at least when played clean with the swamp ash bars attached) - but at the same time it's ... well, different.
Very percussive, probably due to the maple neck.
No, I'm not planning to buy it. But what do you think of it?
