    I think you mean Swiss. Swedes are more known for death metal, furniture and meatballs. ;)

    What's the Swedes got to do with the Swiss? :D;)

    I'd want some Toblerone and a Victorinox with that.

    (Watches video) Oh, Swiss! Maybe it's time we start teaching geography, again. ;)

    That back seems to pop off a leetle too easily. I would worry about it coming off in the heat of battle.

    I cannot watch that guy's videos because most of his thumbnails are "How can I get my mouth as crookedy as I possibly can THIS time?"

    They should use the Swiss flag as their logo.

    My friend, who is Swedish used to complain that all there was to do there was fish or play his fiddle. Then he bought a Tele... The rest is history. :)

    I like my watches to be Swiss and my candy fish to be Swedish. No opinion on that guitar.

    I bungled the title, which sucks, because it distracts from the point of the post, which is the funky guitar in the video. Oh well.
