    Hatter, I love that Strat!
    And those PRSs aren't too bad.

    Those new N-225s, well, I admit they're ugly, but I really like them, especially the natural one. I know, what's wrong with me! :laugh2:

    Almost anything from DBZ looks hideous.

    It was made by a company called Kapa. I had one of these as my first electric guitar. It never work but I got it for free and learned all the basic/open chords on it....it's a wonder I stuck with playing LOL.

    I saw a doc on netflix about Bob Marley, and I believe Peter Tosh was playing one of these for most of it lol.

    Seriously ugly, completely impractical for the use they were intended for but extremely well-made and considered to be the rarest and most collectable of the G&L family - The mid 80’s Interceptor. There was actually an even more rare “Stratish” body shape but the X-bodies are ones worth the $$. I do think the sickle headstock is the best of the 4 G&L headstock shapes though.

    I don't know why, but I'd really like to try one of these.

    It's funny, I have examples of many of the guitars in this thread, I really like the unusual and why be a sheep right ? One man's ugly is another man's beauty and vice versa.
