Over The Top/Ugly/Just Plain Odd Guitars.

Postby Doctor Turn » Wed Aug 23, 2017 11:40 am

Thought this could be a fun idea for a thread. Carvin-Kiesel makes / has made very few truly ugly guitars (though that radiation green Jeff sprayed over that fine flame top flirts heavily with the concept of this thread), so this is for all other non Kiesel/Carvin guitars (there is an "Unusual/Vintage" guitars thread in the photo section for Carvins).

Anyone into some deep tiger's eye? Saw this on the verb.

Would you expect anything less from the company that built that idiotic axe bass for Gene Simmons? Kramer was a pretty cool company in those early days when he struck out on his own after working with Travis Bean, but things took some goofy turns there after a while.

It's a good thing those guitars have a locking nut and a Floyd. They wouldn't stay in tune otherwise since the strings have the least straight angle to the tuners of any guitar ever.

Ibanez RG1570 and Mikro
2x Fender MIM Strat

I previously stated that the Enterprize reminds me of a severely botched circumcision...and it still does.

The Triax just makes me think "Qapla'." Also, it's at least good the locking nut is in place, because I can't imagine how bad the tuning stability would be when using the vibrato, or the string bind. An absurd piece.

That wangcaster is a bolt on....so it was cut off and put back together (probably) at some point. How...(90s reference inbound) Bobbit-esque.

Others that came to mind:

The Enterprize looks like something that you would use to cut cheese.

It would be so much better looking if it didn't look as though someone pasted some extensions on a PRS. It makes me think that some 29000" subwoofer should be sticking out of it somewhere. Ultimate SPL guitar.
