    The headstock looks like it ran out of design after the body...

    I think I like it a lot.

    I like those too - great mid century look.

    They look uncomfortable to play, but I'd love to try one.

    Last I checked they were no longer in production.

    A Googie-inspired 4-string! I love it!

    Looks like something Jet Screamer would play. Eep-Opp-Ork-Ah-Ah!

    I love his work. I wanna commission a tenor inspired by my band's logo. or a four string mando. only thing i'm not into is bridge pickups - my only gripe. the price is great too.

    i kind of wish he'd tune it for the demo though... unless my ear infection has gotten worse... (that happened once in my life - ear infection leading to complete loss of musical ear - everything out of tune.... )

    Not a fan of the “Gumby” style body, but I nearly bought this one (Exotik/Xotic model?) last summer: https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-OcxwNFJR-...s640/T4-02.jpg.
