    The part of the stand that is sticking out by the bridge at the bottom throws it off for me. I've never had a chance to try any of their guitars but this caught my eye as I'm a fan of headless designs and the current trend.

    Looks kinda strange. The figured top pattern doesn't help much. It almost looks a bit offset too.

    I want to know why most headless' are fanned. I love headlesses, but I'm unsure about a FF guitar.

    Probably since headless guitars are more innovative and modern so the people who want them will want fanned frets which are also somewhat in that category. If people are willing to give up the look of a normal guitar for the benifits of a headless they are probably also willing to buy (and pay more for) fanned frets.

    I was slightly unsure about fanned frets as well but it took me about 5 minutes to adjust to them. I'm sure that with more extreme fans it could start changing the way you play though and could be more difficult to adjust. (My FF guitar is 26" - 27.5" scale)

    Not huge on the aesthetic. Looks like someone did a rush drawing and they said "f*ck it, this'll work fine".

    Aside from my aesthetic gripes, I wouldn't buy one anyway as I've seen enough poor QC and sub-par customer service come from them as is.

    Looks like it was once a good looking headless that developed an affinity for donuts.

    I mean, it'd hideous but if it's dirt cheap, I'd consider buying one to strip for the hardware.

    I'd imagine it'll still be around $800 - $1300 like a lot of higher-end Legators.

    Headless has been a thing since the 80's lol i dont consider them modern. just resurfaced. Fanned frets on the other hand looks like some sci-fi stuff

    I'll see your box, and raise you a V... in fact, make it a W!

    Really, though, if there's one distinct disadvantage to the headless, it's that there's only so many designs work with it. You gotta leave room for the tuners hanging off the back, and some guitars just don't look good that way.

    Steinberger boat-oars were born in the '80s, and deserve to stay in the '80s.

    If we're gonna bring a Steinberger back, stick with the M-series.

    Thank you, JazzHands.

    This is my obligatory "if the like button still worked" reply.
