I like it.
I love it!
I would love to see it in a different finish. That red sparkle isn't doing it for me. Other than that, I dig it.
Do Like: Finish, maple fretboard, P90s, Bigsby
Do Not Like: 12th fret inlay only, cream-coloured P90s, strap pin location
"Three bars of 'A Day In The Life' still sustain me, rejuvenate me, inflame my senses and sensibilities. They are the best songwriters since Gershwin."

Pics are here.
Looks like an electric version of a Tacoma Pappose w/ a bigsby & 70s motorcycle helmet sparkle paint job.
I like P-90s, the body shape, and the maple board.
Everything else makes we want to beat it about the face and neck.
This is a thankless job.
For the guitar - Ewwwwwww......
For the thread - Thanks for doing it EG.

Jack is my friend!
I've been having fun with it.
Realized pretty quickly that the main ones who chime in are the ones that don't like the guitar, so there's far more negative comments than positive.
Up to now, I've been trying to do out of the ordinary stuff. Everybody knows what a strat looks like.
Oddly enough, the Godin Icon from the other day was almost universally well received.
Maybe beacuse it looks like a Les Paul.
I hate it one second and think it's got possibilities the next second. The red sparkle has got to go though.....

Yet another friend of Jack...
like the shape, love the finish.
add some skull inlays, make the headstock match the body.
lose the Bigsby, it looks out of place there, too big for the body.
and no f-holes on this, thanks.
so, it's almost there, for me.
but not quite.
that said, if someone offered it, I'd still take it.
i think the Godins have been well received (i posted them too) because they're well made at a decent price and aren't hiding the stylistic influence. it's a tele-paul with flexible electronics. what's not to like?
But does he play a Godin?
Well, there ya go.
Nah, my first reaction, plus one gah and a couple of yucks.
Please consider that Goya Guitars are my reference points for outlandish and garish guitar making.
For example, the "red metalflake" here is a mild, tasteful metalflake, compared to Goya.
The singular "f-hole", its position... makes no acoustic design sense at all, other than just being there.

This might make a nice boogie woogie guitar.
Worth a shot.
I wish I could say that. I get into trouble in Value Village change rooms.
Actually, I just made that shit up.
Sounds good, though, doesn't it?
