    The eBay algorithm bots kept serving this slightly ungainly looking guitar up a few months ago.
    The price was pretty cheap ~$220 with a tweed-ish case.
    A Tele-style rhythm pickup and humbucker bridge and uncomplicated controls looked attractive.
    Set neck and nice to my eye shape. Not sure what's going on with the slots carved in the top, but hey cheap-ish/funky guitar.

    So, any of you Bargain Hunters grab one?

    Never seen this before, but if it's cool, I'll expect to read about how Will Ray bought one for a clean hundred soon enough.
    Can't tell if it's shine or wear on top, just above the big E side.

    Any more pics of tweed case?

    Peace - Deeve

    Their website says the factory is in Wuhan China. No thanks.

    That's the new plan. Infect anybody who plays guitar. That would make an interesting epitaph on the old grave marker.

    It looks like that's a WEIRD semi-hollow, huh? And the 2nd access plate would kinda make sense then.

    That top reveal looks like the outline of an insert. Perhaps for different pup/bridge configurations. Pretty cool if you can change out that much with a swap of something kind of like a pickguard.
