Looks more like Trump!

I actually thought that, too, but wanted to keep politics out of this thread. 😜

I had a cheap upright bass with this pegbox. Apparently Framus sold an electric upright with a similar style. It must be a German thing, because my old bass was stamped "Made in Western Germany". It didn't have any other identifying marks.

Why is there a giant butt plug in the middle of that courtyard..?

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned Carvin's pointy inline 12-string headstock yet.  According to carvinmuseum.com, they only made them in 1988-9, which must've been the high-water mark for pointy guitars.  It probably sounded like a better design in theory, but wound up in practice more like a nightmare:

Did he do that to lower string tension instead of wrapping around the tailpiece? 😆

I'm sure he explains it in one of his destructional videos.

Because I’m still trying to forget it ever existed...  thanks for bringing it back up. First time I saw that I had hoped it was a product of photoshop.

Does look like a photoshop mishap:

This one has always been most appalling to me:

mostly because the guitars receive generally great reviews.  Why?  Why?

Is that a Brent-approved modification?  :rolleyes: :lol: :ph34r:

Brent can buff that shit out and make it as good as it was when it left Kalamazoo.
