A lot of my favourites have been covered, but this is one I’d love to have:
I owned a Kramer "Duke" bass for a little while.
Aluminium neck, headless monster.
It never played comfortably and so I let it go.
I saw this guitar from PureSalem guitars (their Mendiola model) and thought it looked cool. Minihumbucker in the bridge!
Gibson moderna was a tad odd
not too unusual but not super common
The most “unusual” guitar I own is a BMG Special, just a lil out of the “norm” of LPs/Strats/Telescope, but not too odd, really ... it’s the mass produced base model, nothing at all like his Old Lady, really, but not like a LP/Strat/ Tele either.. MIK, and very nicely made/plays well. Not my “go-to,” but does see regular use... it sounds not so great through a couple amps, sounds great through a tweaked Tweaker
A used one in green was at my local GC.
Top tier out of reach and I didn't even try it but it looked cool enough that I might have had to take it home...
Here’s one of my travel guitar bodies, I must have made it in the ‘80s.
Tele bridge pickup mounts through the hole in the side covered by a Strat jack plate. Brass and bronze were scraps from working in boat shops.
I just squeezed an Allparts neck in the pocket for the pic, and stuck a couple of screws in to hold the tail late. Action height is adjusted from the back via two screws pushing up on the ends of the single saddle.
I always liked the look of these:
Burns Jet Sonic. Designed by Pagelli.
If I lost all my guitars to fire or theft and had to choose one guitar to replace them, I'd want a Hofner 459-R Ignition. Years ago, I had the Jay Turser JT-G2 version and it was a wonderful guitar....lighter than anything I'd ever played, and once I upgraded the tuners to locking Sperzels, held tune as well as anything I ever owned. The Hofner version does away with the old-style two volume - two slide-switch control panel, which makes it pretty much perfect in my book.
I’ve came so close to buying a Albert Lee model for years. One of these days.......
