A few days later the head of Musicvox, Matt Eichen, emailed me offline saying that he got quite a laugh at my description.
|Not really Al DiMeola|
I just don't see Brad Paisley or Al DiMeola using one of these babies anytime soon.
The Spaceranger comes in a variety of colors. All the guitars are six string and have either PAF single coil or Humbucking pickups.
The company also offers a pickup they call blackstripe, but it sort of resembles the toaster style pickups of those guitars made by a closely held California guitar manufacturer.

Musicvox also manufacturers a line of equally odd looking bass guitars including a 12 string bass. Not only is the body totally bizarre, so is the headstock. It is sort of Gibson meets Vox and gets run over by a steamroller. Except for the website the Musicvox company no longer advertises. The sell direct to the consumer.

I'm not certain their guitars are still in production. However I salute the Musicvox Spaceranger and it's cousin, the Musicvox Space Cadet as Unique Guitars.
