I actually have one of these. I bought it because it's hilarious and was cheap.

Aside from hanging really awkwardly (which is as much a function of my fat body as of its poor design), it's actually a pretty great guitar. Sounds surprisingly tame given the aesthetic choices (fucking carbon fibre inlay, dudes).

Here is a video wherein I am playing it fatly, replete with especially indulgent guitar solo. This was actually the first time I'd played it live, in spite of having had it for ~10 months. I almost like it now.

Anyway. I have a thing for hideous guitars sometimes.

I could really go either way on that body. Not really wild enough to be like "whoa! shit!!", but I kind of like the lightning bolt style plate accentuating the shape. The headstock on the other hand...what the fuck. That is terrible. If they actually did a reverse Explorer headstock that would be something, but jesus... Thing looks like a club foot. Like the designer just wanted to go to lunch or something and said "fuck it" and drew a little blob at the end of the neck. I would say the guitar is just fine, but that headstock is one of the Ugliest Ever.

That one needs "I'm with stupid" written on the headstock.

It should be on the upper V horn, pointing at the wearer.

Arrow guitar is gonna be pointing at somebody's dick all night. I guess one thing is you could take it out onto the street beforehand and direct people to the gig.

That is not a reverse flying V dude. That is a mouse pointer shape.

Perhaps this custom guitar for Spencer Seim of Hella has been posted before but it may be worth posting again to point out "beard clippings" incorporated into the body.

There's something charming about a guitar that was made really for only one person in the world.
What is the ugliest guitar you would have made for yourself to be used only by you?

The Duesenberg Johnny Depp Artist Series is an excellent axe that boasts a wholly unique aesthetic and unmistakable tone. The first thing you'll notice about this guitar is its aluminum top, adorned with etchings of Johnny's tattoos, each holding significant meaning to the artist himself. The aluminum top over a solid American alder body is rounded up with cream binding that fleshes out the guitar's eerie look.


I hope it comes with an Ed Hardy stage outfit to complete the look.

All of the fake wanna-be Zemaitis guitars everyone is making are way irritating to me now.

I think that fucker would be aces if it just didn't have the "tat graphics." I played a used Dusenburg at guitar center a while back and it was really a blast to play.

Yeah it would. And even the goofy tat graphics wouldn't be so bad if you hadn't read that wretched description and had no idea you were looking at reflected fragments of Johnny Depp's soul.

I gather that Johnny Depp is actually a pretty good guitar player as well as being a weapon-grade poseur.
