    I kind of like the body shape of the wild custom, but the graphics are hideous to me. then again, who am I to judge, crackle finishes and bengal paintjobs are some of my favorite finishes :lol:

    If I think of a scarab beetle instead of a Mustang, the third one almost works...

    I actually really dig the shape. In the right color it'd be really similar to the Raven that Kenny Hickey used to play.

    If the colour scheme of all the graphics was the same (so all blue or all red/gold) then I think it would be 1000x better.

    If you want to have a good laugh go look at the outrageous guitar finishes collections on reverb, there's some hilarious guitars going for stupid amounts of money

    I love the Katana personally - one of the few Fender designs I kinda want.

    I don't mind it. definitely not my favorite v shape by any stretch (that'd be the esp arrow).

    ^ That one has surfaced a couple of times already. That was a show case guitar with the purpose of pickup testing, AFAIK. Yah, it's a funny guitar but has a specific end and with that in mind I find it quite awesome. I feel that every guitar store that sells aftermarket pickups should have something like this. I'd go a little further and add some 2 ON/ON switches and replicate the Seymour Duncan's Tripleshot circuit, adding the possibility to get any of the single coils isolated, parallel or serial combos for each pickup. Shouldn't be much harder than what this already is...

    Yeah, that would be pretty sweet. Ecept, I’d be sitting for an hour trying to decide which pickup I like better, while my wife says, “they all sound exactly the same.” :lol:

    Obviously it’s a Seymour Duncan demo guitar...I totally get it for trying pickups, but its ugly as hell and funny imagining the pickups spinning around like ZZ Top’s fuzzy guitars. I could see some over the top guy trying to get schwifty with one of these...Micheal Angelo Batio style

    B76F4C39-AEDC-49EC-BC70-CE62AC13A5B3.jpeg I can’t look at this guy without cracking up!!...goofy, over the top guitars- check. Hair (I honestly think it’s a wig) that looks like a “Fraggle Rock” character- check. Ridiculous “O” and angry faces while playing- check. He may be talented, but I’m confused who his target audience is supposed to be...?. What is this?...what the hell is he doing??...

    Is he trying to flex those scrawny arms?...haha...it looks like he’s flattening his bicep against his guitar to make it look bigger- weird...
