    That is the most hideous, awful looking guitar that I've ever seen.

    I would still play it just to show off it's chartreuse-ness.

    That's actually painful to look at.

    I like it.

    Yowza!

    What's even weirder is that the pictures are hosted on some Malaysian water filtration site.

    Maybe that's why they're taken by the koi pond - it doubles as a washboard.

    I've seen much uglier guitars that many consider "vintage and cool"...

    it's truly impressive paint, how do they get it that bright? having said that I'm not sure what that paints good for, loading zones or saftey lanes

    Nice. Would look right at home in my old reef tank. No really it needs a logo like a caterpillar or tropical salt water fish. You'd have to have some nerve to play that out. ;)

    Geeeezus.

    Reminds me of a single pickup Carvin I built from a set-neck kit back in the 80's. (yes, they used to sell set-neck kits before they went through neck and bolt on.

    I played it with a clear finish for a few years, but then tried to do a clear blue finish and didn't mix the lacquer right or something and the paint cracked and looked awful. I tried sanding it down but some of the lacquer was thin and soaked into the wood.

    I painted tehe guitar fluorescent red (sort of like the Ibanez RG series that came out a few years later) The guitar was a pinkish-red color in regular light... but under a black light it turned a bright YELLOW-ORANGE color.

    so weird.

    It's still in a closet somewhere... it's been repainted a few dozen times.

    Only pic I have of it was before the first paintjob (pic is probably 1986 or 87.)

    From space the only recognizable man-made things are the Great Wall of China and that guitar.

    If you poke around in PICS directory of where those shots are found, you'll see a concept drawing of that guitar and a few more. I don't know where the OP found the pics, but it looks like someone had a clear idea of what they wanted and had it made - not my style, but good on ya...

    whoever you are!

    I guess my main questons would be did he crack this guitar before these pictures and will he have to keep this guitar in the freezer to keep it from fading?
