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


Take care, Larryz

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

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
