i really like the idea. but 2.5k seems a bit steep. the idea is to get more people to buy totally sustainable guitars, then a smaller price tag is essential imo.
at 2.5 its prestige only sadly.

been like that for years (I remember my boss in the 80's buying a counter top from the Salvation Army shop cos it was Cuban Mahogany to make furniture with! )

i doubt it's even a factor these days

And I guess the slag from the ores doesn't count as waste.

Guitars should be grown, living organisms are superior to tech in every way.

In the mean time, a guitar made of cockroach shit would be far more ecological (and the 'waste' could be used to grow pot).
If man can go to the Moon, why can't we properly potty train cockroaches ffs :x

There are plenty of alternatives to wood but they've never caught on...
