They are coming up with all kinds of new sound hole designs. My buddy has a Santa Cruz model with the sound hole on top. It makes a great beer holder LOL! Me, I'm stuck on the round hole for some reason although I did like the Ovation small holes with the artistic wood designs...If the odd designs function and look OK, I can deal with it. +1 on the John Lennon model as the pickup addition has always looked great to me! And +1,000 on the Bigsby looking very awkward on a dreadnaught, especially with the bent bar model! But, someone out there is going to like it LOL! facepalm

Not exactly the weirdest of the weird, but you definitely don't see it every day. Well, unless you're Peter Case, that is.


I wonder if he meant Eastwood? It looks like the Airline guitars they're resurrecting.

Big Peter Case/Plimsouls fan here, too.

Definitely a Bo Diddley influence over a Leo Fender Telecaster single cutaway LOL! Wish he had left the headstock alone though! cool

It's definitely an Eastwood of some sort.

love it! ...but I would've gone with embedded-light sliders for the EQ, so I could just tell at a half glance where it was set.

^Very cute Hugo! I liked the acoustic sound the best and I could see offering two separate guitars without the flip. It is a very cool idea though... cool

ok, this isn't the weirdest guitar I've posted by any stretch, but it's a Korean headless beauty, and I'm in luv with it.





...the whammy bar looks like a design I have not seen before. Haven't been to their website yet, so I don't know all the particulars about it. Go to about the 5 minute mark in the 1st video to get a closer look. smile

That whammy bridge looks to be a direct descendent from the Steinberger design.
Seriously wish people would understand that overdriven tone does absolutely nothing to inform viewers of the tonal qualities of a guitar.

seconding that wish - when I'm serious about putting a potential new guitar buy thru its paces, I never even plug it in.

I posted this not long ago but here seems to be a good place for it, too.



I like that he describes the crazy multifret thing as "totally messed up". grin
