It's not that they are bad, they just haven't gotten any kind of respect due to lack of exposure and initial popularity. Look how long the Fender Bronco took to get credit before the Artic Monkeys finally blew that open. I'm not talking about a tiny boutique guitar no one has heard of - I mean a major company that made a concerted effort, but never made a long term impact...yet. Below are my top three votes, and if you can name someone so famous that they already make these guitars a household desirable model, please correct me. 1) The Non-Reverse Firebird. Does this win, or what? 2) Gibson L6S. Do you really think of Santana when you see this thing? Neither do I. 3) Last but not least, the Fender TC-90. A modern "lost classic." Very good ideas all put together in a strange way.
