    I really dig it. It's got all of the "traditional" anchor points. It's interesting how much the overall look changed just by filling in the...um...boob cutout(?l along the top edge.

    Headstock is like a less offensive EBMM Bongo headstock, or bit like a slightly pointer Kiesel's GT.

    ^When your main electric is a Dana Scoop.

    (In seriousness, I know very little about steel-string acoustic guitar construction, but that looks super-impressive if stable.)

    Flat top construction is more about the balance between stability of the top and tone. You can make a super rigid top, that's fairly easy, but so much bracing is going to affect volume, projection, and tone.

    The idea is to use just enough bracing to keep the top from {easily} failing while preserving the sound.

    The trade off is going to come down to what the builder feels is acceptable.

    Curious about what little we can see of the inlay. I mean, Weird body shape looks like it was made with a skilsaw, paint job looks like one coat of black spraypaint with no clearcoat and wasn't cured properly. Stickers. Bigsby looks like it was added post-refin, and then the inlay looks like someone might have murdered and entire village of abalones, but we can't tell from the photo.

    That's a pretty foul build. It sours the stomach.

    I haven't been on recently to see if it has changed any, but eBay used to be flooded with cheap, gaudily-inlaid necks- my guess is that it's one of those.

    I am concerned for the well being of the people who made these "guitars"
