|Bond||1984-85||The Bond Electraglide was a carbon fiber electric guitar manufactured by Bond Guitars between 1984 and 1985. Mick Jagger bankrolled the company that made this guitar and his brother ran the company. The guitar was innovative, with a unique stepped fingerboard instead of frets, but rather sterile sounding. It had LED indicators for volume controls and a unique molded fingerboard. They allegedly spent over $150.000 in tooling just to make the molded cases that came with the guitar! Mick Jones of the Clash played one for a while.
The Bond Electraglide was matte-black, 3-pickup, with a unique stepped aluminum fingerboard (anodized black) instead of traditional frets. Pickup switching, volume and tone controls were completely digital, powered by a large internal motherboard.
