Dont have one any more but i am planning a warmoth build.
I didn't know that, BDB! That is cool!
My Bigsby. I kinda bought it on a whim, but it plays great. Glad to have it.
That would be my 2016 Gibson Firebird V "T", I put a black pickguard on it, and I do play it some, but I got it because I thought it was one beautiful guitar, and I got it new for $1099.00
Don't own one, but this Teisco Spectrum 5 was the first guitar I thought of when I saw the thread title:
One of my favorite players is Joshua homme from Queens of the Stone age. I doubt I'll ever spend enough money to get his signature Maton guitar that isn't even sold here in the US, the schecters tempest was as close as a shape as I could get. I bought a 30th anniversary tempest and it's been a monster. Pretty much a Les paul clone, but still cool.
I dislike Homme but like those Schecter Tempests.
All of my telecasters
This was the second electric guitar I ever got - just cos it looked cool.
And when I was playing Heavy Metal bass in the 80's early 90's - I traded my lovely Fender Jazz Precision for this!
Still got it too, but the poor things in a total state! I really should fix her up!
My CAR Liquid and Chibson Teardrop. I wanted the Liquid with two pickups but looked like they may not return and I got the CAR wile it was there. Have hardly played it and don't like the three pickups. Looks beautiful, though. Love the Teardrop.
Those are definitely on my list of guitars to take a punt on if one shows up at a good deal price - very cool looking things! I love an ugly duckling, me...
Firebird and explorer. Both are clumsy in real life = stupid. pelham blue SD...
Thankfully, for my wallet, none. Though I came close when buying my Duesenberg Starplayer TV.
I suppose it depends on what your definition of "cool" is but I've always been attracted to piano black guitars and art-deco type styling.
The fact is that the Duesenberg sounds fantastic, to my ears, but I do wonder if I'd have been sufficiently tempted to buy it, irrespective. I hope not but I can't say definitely not.
Can we keep this thread going till somebody buys a Meteora??
Crazy. I was looking around recently and am very tempted by some old Framus I see here and there. Then again I am wondering should I buy it just on a picture? I see that many more before me have done just that and been very happy with the result. I'll let y'all know...
I just put in the direct link to the pic. https://imgur.com/a/z0GedxY
The only annoying things are one slightly bent tuner, and some ugly glue remains from a removed pickguard. I hope I can find a substance that can remove that glue without damaging the finish further. I think It looks great without a pickguard anyway.
That Cort Sunset in the original post is a seriously good guitar. TV Jones pickups, Bigsby and all the specs seem good. Colin Hay from Men at Work played a Cort at last summer's Sydney Opera House Concert on New Years Eve. That really got my attention.
Cort make some seriously good guitars and not just in their brand name.
I think they have a future aa guitar makers. Even my OM acoustic Cort has a serial number which indicates they'll be around for some.
( I do prefer the Candy Apple Red model on their website and it has a Ricky style "F-hole which adds to it's cool looks.)
I agree, I love how daft it looks.
So how does it sound?
