Aweful? As I you are in awe of its awesomeness? In that case, I agree! It is AWESOME!I think the era of "revolutionary" guitar designs is more or less over .... at least for me. Give me a 50's or an early 60's design and that's all I need/ love. MOdern designs just make me shake my head. And I am in my late 30's at the moment.
I love Hamer guitars and they were designed in the 70's for instance... but BASED on good old things and shapes that we all love.
This could possibly play OK, but it just looks aweful to my eyes:
I don't want to pick on you but this post is one of the main problems with the guitar community. People want everything to sound like a 59 LP, 57 Strat, Tele, etc. If it doesn't its "soul-less".i had an original Fly Deluxe. it was perfectly made and i desperately wanted to love it, but it was soulless and generic-sounding. just an uninspiring guitar to play and the uber flat/thin neck was the complete opposite of everything i prefer
