Frankfurt Musikmesse 2010: XOX Billytone – Billy Sheehan Baritone Guitar

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.

  1. Le son est très sympa apparemment mais par contre le look est heu comment dire …”special” C’est quoi comme accordage un Si en premier grave ?

  2. Il est futuriste et ergonomique le look 🙂 Clairement il ne peut pas plaire à tous ce look! Perso j’aime bien. Et c’est en effet un accordage en Si, baritone oblige (enfin ça n’oblige à rien mais c’est fait pour)
