MPLS Instrument Company

So i just put a downer on one of these. They appear to be a small Minneapolis guitar brand making some really kooky shit. Price point seems really great and designs are sick. The FAQ on their site is banging. I chose a 27" walnut baritone for C#. Their standard baritones are 28.5-30". They also make standard scale guitars and short and long scale basses. The site says they do customs in about 3 months so we will see. Heres a quote from their website:

We hand-select the very best Tone Crystals (TM) to slowly, sensually rub on every build. We infuse our glue with crushed Tone Crystals (TM) to ensure ideal mojo-transfer throughout every joint. This does take time, but it's essential.

Those look awesome. Not something that I personally would use style-wise, but they look fantastic. And I love that they're doing interesting things pickup wise.

I was on board at first glance of the first pic, despite the pickguard & headstock not being my thing
