    The Godwin Guitar Organ! Clever and it worked, but it never caught on commercially. I wonder why...

    That's a shame. It was a good guitar and I wish I'd never sold it, but as a cash-strapped student I could only afford one electric :cry:, so it went in p/x for a Tele.

    Hee hee... This one's called the Bender Distortocaster. Obviously conceived – some might say misconceived, but whatever – as a visual joke, it was nevertheless cleverly designed to be completely playable. At least, that's what they said and I'll take their word for it.

    This answers the question, "If Mesa made a guitar, what would it look like?"

    But John, you're right here to answer the question of why (although the guitar speaks quite nicely for itself)...

    My thought exactly....
    There's a couple there that I like very much- and a few that would look great on somebody else;)

    Now you've got to admit...the blue and gold one is basically awesome. I'm off to the flea market to find me an old gastank. :D

    They all look better on anyone other than me.

    $17,000 Fender limited edition Stevie Ray Vaughn replicas!

    SRV played with pieces of Sh%$ and made em sound great - because its not about what you have but what you do with em - and the public (fans) pay outrageous sums for nonsense.
