It wasn’t very well balanced to play, just uncomfortable. It was never properly set up and that could well have been one of the problems. In the seventies, it was a cheep fender answer to a 335, but just didn’t do it for me.
I kinda got a little GAS for these Fender Alt Reality things
I had a 79 Explorer. Ugly but played and sounded good.
Those look awesome, except the headstock should have been made a little more angular to suit the body.

To be honest it is one of my beauties but my wife think it is butt-ugly.
My beloved Antigua.
You may not like the colour but you have to love the guitar just because it is a Stratocaster in the end xD.
Life is good,
I like non traditional styled guitars not all of them but a lot of them , beauty is in the eye of the beholder

I had a '78 and wish I had not traded it.
Now I am planning a Partscaster tribute to it, but a mix of 70s vintage and modern features... 3 bolt with a CBS headstock, but Hot Noiseless pups (I had DiMarzio SDS-1 in my '78), thinline body, and 2-post modern bridge.
For my ugly submission, my early 80s Hondo H-1.
Fitted a Kahler trem, and had a custom pickguard cut to house the Duncan Invader at the bridge, and the stock neck pickup from my '78 Strat in the neck.
It was a plywood POS, but it served a purpose in the 80s when how much Aquanet you used was more important than your tone
Keep me in mind if she makes you get rid of it.
I love her more than life itself but she can´t make that happen while I am still up and kicking.
All the best,
I used to love my coranado reissue until someone said it looks like an onion.
I was somewhat interested in the Lace Helix guitar with the twisted neck they made a long time ago:
The whole guitar was supposed to be designed to be ergonomic. I thought it was interesting. They made several versions with their Lace Sensors, Chrome Domes, and their other pickups. I'm not sure how well the twisted neck worked with the string heights though.
Yup... the only way to make a Coronado look more awkward is to put a "hockeystick" neck on it.
And of course, they did...
Thing makes Gumby look like he has a crew cut.

This is my first, an Audition ZEN-ON guitar. These guitars were made in Japan and sold by F. W. Woolworth Company back in the day. I bought it for $79.95 with money I made delivering newspapers back around 1963. I think I had it just before the Beatles came to the US.
One of the most desirable features about this guitar are the gold foil pickups they sound phenomenal, the neck is a huge hand full. I used this guitar in a band I was in from 67-70. Some people might consider it to be an ugly “3-tone sunburst”. I consider it to be the only guitar I’d keep if I could only have one mainly because I think its neat looking, sounds great and being my first makes it very sentimental.
And while I may find it beautiful, Les Paul thought it was ugly.
Not ugly in my aged eyes, but maybe to some. Wished I saved that turd for old times sake.
A genuine 1972 Ford Maverick in the background.
The first electric I plucked strings on. 60s Japanese Kingston. Quite a nice rosewood neck really. My 8"+ hands were nearly done growing by then. Any barre chord, anywhere I wanted. Action be damned.
Rather dead from the neck down though:
