    Ok, that pink Strat... I find it to be one of the least aesthetically offensive, but holy sh*t on a stick if it isn't the most functionally insulting things I've ever seen.

    Seen a lot, for sure, but acoustic guitar with a whammy bending the whole deck was new..
    Cool idea - hope the deck will last. Do not give this to Kerry :lol:

    This looks funny but it's actually really cool. I have always wished I could play on both sides of my hand on a guitar (because the strings do make noise on both sides), and so back in my senior year of high school I made an acoustic instrument with soundholes on both ends. I called it the Quetar because it looks like a big Q-tip.

    The problem is that since guitar fret spacing gets smaller and smaller as you move up the fretboard, doing it in two directions requires some non-western scale compromise. The only places the two sides are in tune are at the harmonics. So what I did was make two moveable bridges that sit under the strings that you can move around and actually create three melodic zones that interplay. I still totally suck at playing it, but I'm getting there.

    Obviously tempered fretting for alternative tuning, featuring a handrest for deeply scooped tapping :yesway:
