Instead of Ugly how about Beautiful Axes

We already have a thread for Ugly guitars, don't truly Beautiful ones deserve a thread too? I'll start it out, this one's for my friend 1Bass.

I'll try again


Over in "ugly", I put a heap of Cinderella siblings all from the same seller. And yet, they offer this very nice semi for only $290:

OK, the headstock's not my cuppa and the clear pickguard - while I can see why - makes the gold bracket look like a spare prick, but hey - $290. I think it's purty.

This isn't an UGLY , not sure it's beautiful but it sure is interesting,might be awkward to play , I probably should have put this in acoustic, but there isn't a thread there that relates, according to the web site, British luthier Andy Manson made this for John Paul Jones.


Another beautiful Bass, would like to see what they'd do with a guitar.

@USGold - Those are some great finds!

Thanks Jason, actually I'm just trying to keep this site active but I do enjoy finding pics to share too.

Strange how beauty is so much more subjective than uglyness...can see where you're coming from but couldn't call any of these beautiful, could rate the craftsmanship etc...but on 'looks' alone, I prefer my 'Christine'

Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder and all that. :D
