    My friend found what must officially be one of the ugliest guitars I have seen in my life. It must have been made near Crimea in a factory with crazy radiation or something because I don’t understand how something this ugly can be made.

    Wow. That body shape... my eyes are actually reacting to it the same way they would if I was really dizzy and trying to look at something. "Clearly, Antero, it's distorted. Realign us so you can see what it looks like!"

    I like it, too. And it's made in New Hampshire. What's not to like in that wood!???

    I thought it was interesting - while I love them, I get sick of all the LP/Strat/Tele copies out there. At least he's being creative...

    Personally I like it, although the guitar looks thin, maybe I am of the wrong impression you need "wood" to get tone.

    I actually think its WAY cool-!!
    . . . though I think it would look 'WAY COOLER-!!' if it were painted a vintage Sea-Green with chrome hardware, maple fingerboard, and maybe some sort of white Bakelite pickgaurd . . . maybe throw a Bigsby on it . . . etc

    it does look like something from the Flintstones . . . . coolo

    The only problem I have with it is the problem I have with the aesthetics of really fine boutique guitars in general: too much about the fine wood . . .

    Totally agree with you there.

    A nice Swamp Ash top is about as nuts as I like to go with figured woods - I tend to favor minimalist asthetics...

    I like it a lot. The shape reminds me of my Godin LGX-SA which is a player's dream.

    I don't mind the guitar, I actually like it. But what kind of jazz guitar has a 1.65" nut? If it was 1 11/16 or 1 3/4 it would be appealing.

    Ha, I was thinking the same thing. Great piece of wood, though. I'm sure it makes somebody smile.
