    Well, you must have seen it coming; you titled the thread "Fuglycaster" after all.

    Anyhoo, I like it, except for the pearl fret markers and the blue (?!?!?) strings. But then, I own a White Violet Pearl Danelectro.

    Looks great to me, except for the knobs. They're a bit garish.

    I like it.
    My pupils wont stop dilating and contracting! My tongue feels really dry!:(
    Now I feel like touching all of my furniture! Then I wanna write a song about it and share my feelings!:D
    Uh-oh, now I feel like some orange juice and a nap!:eek:


    Seriously, cool guitar. People expect you to be a little strange if they see you with that.

    Guess what? I think those are cool!

    I thought they would be terrible guitars though. I got a chance to play one and it was way better than I expected - it was heavy but played and sounded really good.

    No biggie; beauty's in the eye of the beholder. I've always thought SGs are the ugliest instruments ever made, but who am I to argue with Zappa? For the record, I thought the zooting was ugly enough to pair perfectly with the SG, the way pus pairs perfectly with maggots.

    On topic, though... where does one even get knobs like that? Are they painted metal? I know StewMac makes white ivoroid ones, but I've never seen Christmasoid ones. And +1 on the blue strings origin question.

    I love it! I'm really happy for you, that's a one of a kind and it's now yours. Good for you!

    I've only ever read of the swirl (bowling ball) tops before, good to see that they are out there.

    I like it but personally wouldn't play it. I would play a more conservatively swirled guitar though, maybe black, red and white or even just black and white and silver or grey would look nice.

    I know someone on here has a collection of every colour thinline, instead you could get one with all the colours swirled; Shell pink, Surf Green, LPB, Daphne Blue and Candy Apple Red.. That would look pretty cool.
