What other (non-Ibanez) guitar designs do you like?

Pretty simple really, and just as the thread title suggests...

I've always had a thing about Mockingbird (yeah I know, it's a BC Rich...) but outside of the fruity cloud inlays that accompany a lot of them, I think they're some really nice-looking guitars.

Check this out:

I really like the BC Rich Stealth but the whole $1k price tag kills me. Also really dig the Dean Razorbacks but I have a feeling I would never use it if I got one.

I don't like any BC Rich designs, but I do like the extensive wiring options they have. Much more variable sounds from them with all the killswitches and out of phase and coil taps and stuff they put on.

Mockinbirds are cool, but they need a 6 in line headstock that matches the lower horn...

I remember seeing Slash's bright red one and wishing i had one before i even played guitar

True, the headstocks really let them down. Between them and the cloud inlays it's enough to put me off. But the actual bodyshapes I think are really cool and you could play a lot of different style (depending on the finish) without looking too far out of place.

Re: What other (non-Ibanez) guitar designs do you like?

I may be a bit biased when I say this since I'm the distributor but I've always like the design of the Caparison Horus.



I know it's just a super strat but for some reason I'm hooked on these things. The Devil's tail headstock on these are just as cool as the BC Rich Widow headstock IMO.

Aside from Caparison, other designs I've always like was the ESP Forest shape (very metal)



and the ESP Crying Star (Syu sig model) whic is very similar to the Random Star & Killer Akira Takasaki models



but then there's this:



That's just art that just happens to be a playable guitar.

(and yes I have a thing for 27 fret guitars)

I love the idea behind this one...I still have mine, because one day it'll be worth a ton

Most of the the BC Rich line is awesome, I especially love the Bich...That's why I married one...

Often imitated (even by the company that made it), but never really duplicated - I've always loved the original one:

Re: What other (non-Ibanez) guitar designs do you like?

I love the Washburn N4. It's a bare bones tripped down shred machine. It's got nothing extraneous it's so pure and it sounds so good.

I don't know why I don't have one!?!?! Probably because I wouldn't know which one to get...

Re: What other (non-Ibanez) guitar designs do you like?

I agree with Buddy, the Horus looks perfect. It looks like its incredibly comfortable and should play almost effortlessly, too bad theres no way i could get my hands anywhere near one
