    The first one looks to me like a Hofner violin guitar that someone actually put effort into making it look nice. The last one looks like it incorporates a lot of trendy design points from expensive guitars like the Larada and Claas's modern designs. The bass looks like a lot of fun, but I guess it kind of looks like a toilet seat, so maybe goofy in a way. I'm sure many people would call those designs "goofy," but they look classy to me. But that's coming from the guy who, several years ago, mod'ed an RG7321 to have a ton of glow-in-the-dark shit on it, so take my opinion with a spoonful of salt.

    I don't think I'd call them "goofy", which to me sort of implies a certain amount of haphazard whimsy, but they're definitely not your run-of-the-mill Strat clone.

    I understand and agree with that sentiment. Even when it comes to a lot of Gibson offerings (the undisputed OG of headless guitars, even when it's not on purpose).

    There's Vagina guitars. You can string it up with Naked Strings (though I heard they were good when they existed).

    No joke, as soon as I saw that one I thought it looked like something you would have.

    The builds are very good, in terms of quality. I have two of them - a sixxer I picked up years ago, and now this one. What I WILL say is that the action is pretty high on both of them. On the sixxer I shimmed the neck to compensate (because I'd already lowered the bridge all the way). The 8 string also has high action, but I can't shim it due to the design. And the saddles are piezo, so I can't fuss with them. That being said, it's not "high" action. It's maybe 1.5mm or 1.6mm at the high E at the 12th fret. I'd buy another one, if one popped up, though.

    1. Is it just me or does the hollow...thing... not have a pickup for the bass strings?

    2. Holloway's guitar is probably the best looking one in the thread for the last many many pages, even if it looks like a space drag racer.

    It reminds me of some cartoon foxes.

    I always figured you'd be a Mother-Plucker.

    I've liked the Annabelles since I first saw them because they're actually an ergonomic guitar that will set in a good Classical Position, but aren't obviously "Ergo".

    I'm thinking the customer might have been a flat-earther.

    Ahh, the Great Antarctic Ice Wall, of course.

    Honestly, it's not the worst thing ever. The teeth(?) are the least redeeming aspect of it IMO. I imagine in person it's much uglier, though. It's so flat and dull
