Other Guitars

Sometimes this is attractive to me…sometimes it’s grotesque.

Looks like it was dipped in creosote.

Probably smells better than it plays.

28

I like it. Better than a Nocaster build that looks like all the rest. Yay for imagination.

29

That's hideous. That's more kitchy than a painting of a crying gypsy boy.

They didn't go far enough. I want one charred perfectly to ash, like a cigar as one whole stick of ash. Then have it sprayed carefully with some thinned down iso glue to retain shape. Oh yea, I also want the rust treatment carefully done on all hardware as well. Afterward I'd like it reliced.

31

I vote grotesque. I like grotesque. You would need to be wearing this outfit, however.

32

I kinda like it. Few years back I was enamored by an Epi SG with a camo finish that was then burned. It was beyond relic!

33

I like burnt finishes but this reminds me too much of '70s furniture.

35

I vote grotesque. Then again, I know that most oftenmy taste does not match the majority's.

– Ric12string

I agree. Fugly as hell.....and as you know, my taste often runs against the majority flow too. And that's not just because it's a Tele, although that doesn't help it's case.

36

Two concerns for me. First I have to wonder how that knot is going to age over time, in relation to the rest of the body. And second, I really don't want to know what the case must look like.

37

I'm knot pining for it. Maybe they had pine but wanted it to look like ash?

39

This is easy: grotesque. Or fugly.

To quote George Harrison in "A Hard Day's Night," .... "Grotty!"

But, when George said it, it was a good thing.

42

If it's what you like, cool with me. I couldn't get into it even with a maple neck and a skunk stripe.

Olivia Anne, I'm surprised at you! Watch the scene again. He said "grotty" was short for "grotesque" in a snide disdain for the square threads the out-of-it TV host was trying to get his approval on.
