    an astounding guitar.

    this was a 'conceptual' project between the original owner (I am #2) and the Tao guys. he wanted to incorporate Japanese / Zen influences throughout the build. I dare say they pulled it off.

    start with the fretless, 'brutalist' neck. I find that it reveals near limitless possibilities. it was exquisitely crafted. the ebony board is so dark, it has a black mirror like quality. it is actually a very comfortable neck.

    the swamp ash body. light weight, extremely resonant - it sings even unplugged....a real feat for a solid body fretless. this is a decidedly resonant instrument. everywhere you touch it, vibrations are evident.

    Bare Knuckle humbucker....need I say more.

    comes with orig Mono bag, COA and I have loads of pics (including build progress and info.)

    TRADE possibities - Yanuziello - Koll - Ritter - Gustavsson - the usual suspects. I will entertain 2 for 1 deals - guitar + cash deals.
    PLS PM me with you offers so as not to clutter the listing. happy to answer all inquiries and will respond to all offers. THX.

    Wow! What can you say but nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.

    since this is an 'outside the box' guitar....and may frighten some....

    I am going to work out a return deal with the buyer.

    ya need to sit with this one for a while....not just an open the case and get it instrument.

    Not a guitar I can use at all, but I sure would like to tinker with it! Looks awesome.
    -- Isn't it crazy that "archtop" and "luthier" are spelling errors on this forum?
