    I remember being a kid and seeing these in magazines - I thought they were awesome at the time. Never had a chance to actually play one though.

    I'm fairly certain that someone was trying to carve an SG and then ....ed it up so started going at the other end.


    Or how about a wood-engraved Ronnie Dio?

    The actual skill that went into that Dio woodburn is pretty damn good!

    Definitely. In fact, it seems like a really nice guitar, unlike the other one's I have posted. I just think it's kind of funny to see a portrait woodburned into your guitar, of a dude who didn't play, at that. Eh... Dio is kind of an icon though, so maybe it's less funny than I thought.

    Like, what if you had a drumset with a picture of Geddy Lee on the kicker?

    That headstock looks like a jurassic centipede that lost a leg fighting aliens. And now has extra frets to compensate.

    No joke, there's a "collectibles" shop by me that has damn near that exact guitar.

    Has a similar version with all kinds of artists, from Bruce Springsteen to Miley Cyrus. :lol:

    All on cheapo Strats with an absurd photo.
