Guitar maker Simon Lee launched the cyclotron range of guitars in 2008. The cycltons have an innovative sandwich body contstruction. The front and back are aesthetic recycled plastic sheets, bolted together with an inner maple core. The three body layers are flat allowing simple manufacture with a bandsaw and pin-router.
As a nice design touch the three layers are different shapes, this allows a smaller more economical inner wooden core with outer layers that fit the ergonomics of the player. The guitars look great and are good for the environment. You can choose from six plastic finishes and various pickup and hardware combinations.
