    Yes, for sure it's an anvil :confused: : wood density is about 0.4-0.7, and PC or PMMA is about 1.4 :eek: ! (in kg/dm3)

    By curiosity, markeebee, did you weighted it ? If yes, let us know... :D

    Everyone knows that plastic is a great tone wood, second only to a northern laminate of maple and walrus penis. Nice guitar Mark!

    Now all you need is one of those plexiglass see-through AC30s and you'll be mega, badass cool.


    Two were built in 1965 for exhibitions and it shouldn't be a problem for a man with your connections to find one of them going for a song (or a clone!).
    And just think, if carrying the guitar has fused your vertebrae together it should not prove a problem lugging the 45kg Vox around.
    I can see the headlines now:
    Mad musician shrunk by 12 inches in height from carting equipment around.

    Joe Walsh was an early DA user---as seen in the movie "Zachariah". Selmer also did one of those Plexi (or should I say Perspex?) amps. In the '30s, Pontiac did a see-thru car. Skunk Baxter plays a Plexi Strat.
