Cool, less traditional guitar shapes?

Lately I've been digging guitars most people don't play/have. So no regular strat, tele, PRS or Gibson bodies allowed here. I thought a thread of our favorites in pictures would be fun!

What's your favorite?

At first I thought the Gretsch Billy Bo Jupiter was ugly, but lately I've seen some videos with ZZ Top and Gregor Hilden playing them. They sound great. And now I think they look cool.

The parker Fly is imho the single greatest guitar design this side of 1965
A few users here pointed out that the top horn has a rough edge that can kinda dig into the ribs.

For guitar, I don't find that the standard Strat shape is pretty good overall. Despite being so common, it's very functional. Shapes like the Kleinberger are obviously ergonomic improvements.

On bass, elongated top horn and single cut designs have a bigger impact with how it balances and plays.

This one is different in many ways, the Soloway Swan:



So many little design touches add up to something balanced and very comfortable:
