    Easy question! Yes, I'm stuck on it.

    Laguna LE422- Nice maple cap (not one of those 'thin' veneer), swamp ash body, carved top, and excellent hardware from the factory.

    You’d probably like the one I just built then! Some people think it’s ugly, but I LOVE it!!

    I personally think they are works of art.

    but..

    I know what everyone says about them when their backs are turned.

    That headstock is disturbing, but the rest of that guitar is hot :thumb:

    All in the eye of the beholder, naturally. But there sure are some ugly guitars pictured here.;)
    I must be old. When you think about it, the classic shapes of the strat, tele, LP, Gibson ES-, are so perfect, it's basically impossible to improve on them. How could someone get something so perfectly right the first time out of the box? It really is incredible.
    Yeah, I don't like pineapple on my pizza either.

    I love bringing this guitar out on stage, the Baritone scale and hideous shape and color always brings a hush over the room.

    After the set, some guitarist from the audience always comes up and asks if it's really a production model.
