The Luddite model, Pleb configuration, by Specimen guitars. For the low-low price of $4600
The Luddite PLEB is my new budget model. It sports all of the features you expect from a Specimen guitar but none of the adornment or tricky business I often get into. Of course it sports the fantastic non adjustable steel reinforcement all Specimen instruments enjoy.

And don't forget the Halfling Luddite...$6,800.

Also from Specimen guitars,and I know this will trigger some folks: "Stratocaster with slotted headstock", $3,800
"The slotted headstock with it’s enhanced break angle over the nut, imparts a superior vibrational embedment into the neck, with extra sustain and shimmering harmonics."

Also from Specimen, BOSCH promotional guitars:

And finally, also from Specimen guitars, the Royale Premiere. $38,000.

At least this one *looks* like it could be a $38,000 guitar, especially with the custom tailpiece, headstock adornment, and pickup bezel hardware.

The reason I'm posting it here, though...that damned headstock.
The headstock and body of this instrument are inspired by the sinewy horror of a praying mantis.
Both the D and G strings have banjo tuners that can be used for special drop-tuning effects.

Yeah, but Krappy's don't come with "fantastic non adjustable steel reinforcement". Surely that's worth 97% more.....

"Hi, Mike? Hi, it's Bear from Bear's Guitar and Small Engine Repair. Yeah, I finished the guitar. I couldn't figure out how to get a new wire to the switch and didn't have a long drill bit, so I carved out a channel on the back. What did I use? No, not a Shaper Origin. No, not a plunge router....No, not a Dremmel, no. Snowblower. *awkward silence* I said I used a snowblower. Nah *looks back at guitar, chuckles nervously*, once I paint it up you 'll never be able to tell."
