My god, that is a cock guitar.

I'd play it in a second, though. I wouldn't pay for it, but I'd play it.

I think that's what Steve would play if he were in a cock-metal band.

I like the idea of a built in stand though.

It's actually a fully functioning guitar.

Those are really bad. Really bad. At various times in the past, though, I've thought of this as the worst, but I may now have to change my mind. More entries in this competition of shame (including the awful wangcaster):

And many dreadful instruments are featured here:

With regards to the first post, it kinda reminds me of the guitar in the movie "ELECTRIC DRAGON 80,000 VOLTS". If you can track down this movie then you really should.

It's a Japanese movie by a guy called Ishii Sogo and it stars Asano Tadanobu (he of Ichi the Killer and Zatoichi fame). He has too much electricity flowing throuh him or something, so he has to channel it all through a metal as fuck guitar. Then he has to battle with a guy called the Thunderbolt Buddah (who has a face half covered in gold) for messing with said guitar. Oh and he can talk to reptiles. Clocks in at around 50 or 60 minutes in length.
My synopsis in 3 artistic mediums : Guitar Wolf (band) meets Street Fighter 2 (video game) meets Tetsuo the Iron Man (movie). Do yourself a favour and find it!

Okay. Sorry for hijacking this thread. Now back to the guitars shaped like mythical beasts or the penis.

guitar number 1: that's one of the best guitars i've ever laid my eyes on!!! i'm sure if i had one of those i'd accidentally saw my arm off but it'd totally be worth it...

the big weiner one stomps the Wangcaster's ballz...

and Maurice, following those links makes me wish i was a billionaire just so i could get all those awesome guitars!!! well, most of them...i'm not sure if i've ever laughed and drooled so much at the same time!!!

It's got a fucking KICKSTAND.

Playability? Who cares... KICK STAND.
I played a drum in Tijuana Hercules.

wow...penis shaped guitar.. i want one!

as for "serious" guitars vox phantom is simply butt-ugly. what was the designer of this thing thinking? if it was designed at all, it looks like a piece of wood that was laying somewhere in basement was found by a blind kind who wanted to have his own DIY guitar...

and it was my first post so i guess i should say hi... well, hi.

I play a copy of a Vox Phantom. I like the way it looks.

Also, Electric Dragon is one of the best movies I've ever seen.

I'm sure the Phantoms are a pain in the butt to play sitting down, but I really do find them to be attractive instruments. Placeholder, is that an Eastwood you're playing, or some other brand? How do you like it beyond the looks?

Pretty much any weirdly shaped '50s or '60s cheap production guitar is fine by me. It's the "custom" jobs and the "wild" shapes of the 80s and later that I often find to be in bad taste.
