    Weird Guitars

    I love 'em

    Frankensteinbergers ... Gretsch Super Chets ... Fender Katanas. And Gibsons too...
    The Gibson Corvus... the Gibson 20/20 bass.. the Gibson RD's
    C'mon...admit it. There are a couple of Ford Edsels out there in the World of Guitars, yeah?
    ... there must be loads out there. Not BAD guitars necesarily, just ones where the Design Shop had a bit too much caffeine that day.

    Try to keep it to those that you ACTUALLY OWN, have Owned or have played...

    For starters, I've got one here... the 1970s Gibson Les Paul Signature

    looks quite normal... or does it?

    Ugly as sin, but Lovely guitar to play, though...




    Come on! Show us your red headed stepchild :)

    What have you got lurking in your attic?

    ugly? I like them...

    as for me the oddest I own is this Lado Zebra. reasonably odd looking and the electronics guys had a bit too much caffeine that day though, a Varitone, active buckers, coil tap, phase reversal on the neck (on a switch), varitone on/off, kill switch and a stereo output. and I love it!

    Well I once got a shortscale bass made by a friend of a friends brother for free. It had a really small body, baseballbat neck without trussrod, no pickups. The most neck heavy bass ever. It actually played and sounded decent. Sold it for way cheap to another friend pretty quickly.

    So here's the pic (without neck obviously).

    And then there's my homemade really simple/basic/ugly lapsteel.

    And an 80's rarity, a Daion Power Sries Mark XX. A great guitar but I couldn't get used to it.

    I hope the three weirdest guitars is ok as well. Should be since they're all different types of guitar :)

    Being a Randy Rhoads fan (since 1981) this one is far from weird to me...but I HAVE heard it described as such.

    i don't think any of these are that weird, but my friends seem to focus on them more than my others and call em strange and/or funky

    Spider Super Strat copy, with some sorta weird purple swirl paint job (original)

    ah I loved that Daion Maurits, but it seems that nobody else can bond with it either as I think it's still on the wall at the shop where you traded it for your Tele...

    keep them guitars coming guys, some great looking things here.

    That looks like the guitar that Nick Saloman from the Bevis Frond has been playing the last few years.

    it's actually the same one pretty much; the only difference is his is an original with the pencil tip like headstock, and mine is a reissue with a more flying v style headstock.
