Though I like traditional wooden body guitars I also happen to like concept guitars such as The Handle made by XOX Audio Tools. The Handle is a carbon fiber guitar which ergonomics is supposed to optimize the transmission of the vibrations. While I was at Musikmesse I stopped by the XOX booth to check out these axes. What I didn’t know was that they’ve just released a signature guitar for bassist Billy Sheehan. The Billytone is built following the principle of The Handle but it is a baritone guitar ergo a hybrid between a guitar, and a bass. Needless to say that I liked what I’ve heard and touched.
