    My taste must be awful, because most of the guitars the last two pages look either pretty cool or just normal to me.

    Sympathetic strings + sympathetic springs too! That thing looks like it'd only be useful for bludgeoning someone.

    The duct tape really pulls the look together. I kind of love that guitar, though and want to try it.

    Looks like there's an arm slope on the left, picking up some light from the left.

    I honestly don't get the "disgusting" and "ewww" hate. Isn't it just basically a Mayoned Duvell?

    This guitar makes me grimace, and even the headstock is fry-tfully dreadful. I'm not loving it.

    Oof... Well, if you've only got one size file, sometimes you just gotta fuck with the dick you got.

    FWIW, this is what that one looked like from the factory:

    It's a Duvell, except someone crudely hacked out the bridge routing to make way for a Hannes.
    Nothing wrong per se with a Hannes (even though I much prefer trems), but it's going to look a lot better if it was ordered that way from the getgo. Not some retrofit that looks amateurish from an aesthetic standpoint.

    Note the scrap wood that was used to make it work and not even hidden from view, compared to this piece that had it from the start:

    The one I linked is fixed bridge though.

    That's true temperament scalloping.
