    Antigua finishes can make even the best guitar designs look like total crap.

    Yeah, Antigua is bad enough, but when you do the F-holes and the pickguard... triple ick.

    Actually, that's the only Antigua I've ever seen that I like.

    Tell ya what Bruxist (and anyone else for that matter), if you give me that Antigua-nado , I'll hand over a brand-new, plastic-y finish, American-made '52 reissue, with it's horrible, orange-y and skinny neck. With the case and all the crap.

    Is that something you might be interested in ?

    Antigua: so far past "so-ugly-that-it's-cool" that it reaches all the way around to ugly again.

    I quite like this one. I hope it's not the slippery slope that leads to BC Rich.

    The Maverick was a "floor sweep" model.

    They take a parts inventory, figure out what they have too much of, and make a model out of those parts.
