    It's funny... all it would take would be a couple guitar heroes to play one of these uglies and they'd look a lot better. Like when Johnny Winter started playing the Erlewine Lazers and they had instantly elevated status. After I saw him play one for two hours non-stop when he was at his peak in the late '80s, they looked a whole lot better to me!

    Once you see the outline of a nutsack on this one, you’ll never not see it again...

    G&L headstocks look badass, once you get used to them. They just look odd at first because we're so used to looking at traditional Strat headstocks, which are themselves a ripoff of the original Bigsby shape.

    Definitely for Alice Cooper fans! Remember the first pressing of "School's Out"?

    Not very pretty, but practical. An arrowhead shape is probably the best (or Fender style 6 in line).
