    How about the weird Jazz Tele things? So odd!

    Purely on aesthetics, the surf green Jazz Tele is awesome, the Tele Gib Deluxe is a good color (also bound with a dark back), the Strat Jag is okay, the Whiteguard Strat is an abomination and I could maybe get down with the TeleGretsch.

    The striking thing about the ones I think are ugly (Meteora, Whiteguard Strat) is how much they look like knockoff brands that needed to change the design ever so much to keep from getting sued.

    The Strat Jaguar reminds me of the old Jansen Invaders.

    They all take some getting used to and I agree they do look a bit like knock offs!

    I really liked the Troublemaker and the Jazz Tele, and The Whiteguard and Strat Tele hybrid also look quite cool. The Jaguar Strat isn't really my kind of aesthetic, but if it sounds and played killer, and better than nicer looking alternatives, then the looks would be tolerable.

    Some interesting ideas in amongst these new models, hopefully, some will make it past the limited edition run for 2018, as I can see them being popular with players that want something new.

    Not sure if i'd actually buy one, but the Surf Green Jazz Tele looks very cool.

    ...though i might have to change the neck for a normal Tele one.

    I wonder how Jazzmaster like those new Teles will actually sound, could be cool.

    Interesting. I'm not committed to any model, but they look pretty cool to me.
