Rich Roland’s one-of-a-kind Neon guitars up for grabs
Originally created as a prototype and master sample for the 1991 NAMM show, the custom Neon guitar (pictured left) by award winning artist/designer Rich Roland of NEO Products Inc. has now reached Etsy. Coming straight from the company’s private collection, it is an entirely handcrafted 24 3/4 scale fully playable guitar, which features a carbon graphite neck and fingerboard, Seymour Duncan Active Pickup and a 1/4 inch jack. The illuminated Neon Les Paul guitar flaunts blue argon neon under thermo-formed acrylic body. Colors change to what is being played on the guitar, thanks to the built-in sound-sensitive light organ. The internally lit Rich Roland’s Neon guitar is priced at a cool $10,000. They are also offering the $15,000 Neon Lizard Guitar, which won Best Neon Artist award in the U.S. in 1993 from Signs of the Times Magazine.
