A guy I know has a Gittler, it doesn't get much more weird than that. Kind of strange to play too, since there really is no neck, just a big rod down the back where the fret rods are attached to. No thumb wrapping allowed! The one I played didn't sound very good.

I love different designs and materials...carbongraphite,stainless steel frets,headless,ergonomics etc. Tueffel,Steinberger,Bolin, on and on. Its all good if done right and if they look high class,high tech.

If you want weird guitars check out vai.com. He's had some funny shapes.

Made out of plywood too. Yuck
The Masonite tops and mystery wood frames (I've seen modern Danos described as having plywood frames, but at least one website says the old Danos had alder frames, and the May 2008 issue of the Brit mag Guitarist says both the old Danos and the above Dano '63 use a poplar frame), in combination with the lipstick pickups, contribute to their unique sound though.

Some people don't find their construction a hindrance at all.

Here's a few more of my somewhat atypical guitars (at least none are typical Fender or Gibson designs):

Schecter Tempest Special:



Brownsville Choirboy:



Epiphone WildKat:

I've always wanted a Burns Steer.



And DiPinto makes some really excellent looking instruments.

I've owned three V's and three Explorers of various makes. I like different looking guitars, if you can call those different.

I always liked that Brownsville guitar. One of several guitars that I was too poor to afford during their late 90's-early 00's heyday.
Thanks, that'un was a real sleeper. I'll admit I was suspicious of the Dano-type construction. The pickups are low-output alnico magnet single coils, with the middle one reverse-wound/reverse-polarity for hum-cancelling in the 2 and 4 positions.

I picked it up for a Benjamin even, in a local pawn a couple years ago. Have gigged it dead stock several times, both in my rock bands and in church.
