Blackbird Guitars' Rider is a hollow-neck, small acoustic guitar made of carbon fiber--the same material used for high-end cars and motorcycles.
The guitar debuted last week at the 2007 NAMM show, a musical instrument trade show, in Anaheim, Calif.

Pricing starts at $1,500, according to Gizmodo UK.
