    I nearly choked on my glass of wine when I read the description of this, um, instrument....

    I'm currently trying my best to literally polish a turd, otherwise known as MFKitten's fan fret Rotor 8. In all honesty, it is one of the most overly-ambitious, horribly designed and executed excuse for an instrument I've seen in over 25 years working on guitars. The neck is a travesty. I've taken copious pics, and will post a long repair log pic story when I'm done. Last nail for their coffin, you'll see.

    Poor Morten...I'm going to make this better than it was, but it will never be a solid instrument.

    Dendro - feel free to post your experiences in a thread. It will get tossed up on Roter Sucks | when bad "luthiers" strike
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Damn, that's nice. Where can I buy one?

    Do you think I can get a reverse right-handed design on mine?
