What's your favourite odd guitar? Mine is probably my Teisco EP-8T or my S.D. Curlee Hondo II. yesani.gif

That was my choice too, although I don't like odd shaped guitars.

If I had a Wangcaster I'd use it as my slide guitar.

Probably the one in my avatar photo (in the stand, if you can see it). It's a 1929 Stromberg Voisinette Kay-Bilt. It has a very wierd-shaped bout and peg-head with about an elephant's worth of ivory inlay with gold-leaf detailing and herringbone binding and purfling all around. But probably the wierdest thing about it is that it has a large wing-nut inside the body at the neck-block that lets you adjust the neck set and action both up and down as well as laterally. It was once owned by the old Carolina bluesman Curley Weaver. He and his partner Buddy Moss both used it to record with in the late twenties and thirties.

I liked the Fernandes Nomad Deluxe but that was before I saw the Wangcaster happyno.gif



Another one of my favorites was the pacman guitar

Well I want a STICK (don't need one.....just want one). That would be my odd "guitar". Right now I'm not willing to shell out the $$ for one and find out it's not all that.

I like the 8 string. It plays closer to a guitar/bass idea than the rest of them imo.

I think I have seen pictures of that exact same guitar before. Is that yours now?
