    I would play it or die tryin.
    I would kill that guitar.
    If it weren't so impractical and ridiculous.

    I've never gotten into gimmicky shaped guitars. Strats, teles, pauls and their derivatives like the wolfgang are just fine by me.
    Stay out of it, dude.

    or a death metal guy...which is why I'm sure they made it.

    I got no problem with guitars like that existing, it's just not really my thing.

    Aside from being non-ergonomically designed or user friendly (no cutaways, recesses or possible way to play it sitting down), the guitar just appears uninspired. If you are going to execute a morbid, juvenile-minded axe, why not pursue some obvious options? For starters, unless Tony Iommi trademarked the idea, why not include some crosses for fret markers? Since coffins feature brass railings, why not make the hardware (knobs, machine heads) appear to be brass? For that matter, include a handle from a real coffin!

    It would have been humorous had the headstock been cut to resemble a grave stone, or if one of the paint options was a flame-job. Otherwise, this thing appears to be an unrealized property, one that was not well thought out and chased to it's natural conclusion. The fact is, a child's wind-up coffin bank holds more charm and fascination than this dorky thing.

    And let's face it, if a nitwit like me could come up with these ideas, you'd think at least someone in the braintrust would have figured them out as well.

    Reminds me of some lines in Caddyshack, both said by Chevy Chase.


    Judge Smails: You know, you should play with Dr. Beeper and myself. I mean, he's been club champion for three years running and I'm no slouch myself.
    Ty Webb: Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're a tremendous slouch.

    Ty Webb: Aww...nobody says that about you that you're aware of.

    Not that it's a reason to purchase this eyesore.

    I'm neither, and honestly, I'm kinda diggin' it. The PU's would have to go. Other than thqt, it IS gimmicky, and that, to me, is kinda fun. Jeez, we already have a billion different Les Pauls, Starts, Explorers...whats wrong with this? I DO believe that the last guitar that Zakk had the Gibson brand make him was WAY uglier than this...anyone remember these?

    or quite possibly the ugliest guitar I've ever seen...
    Eddie must think I'm a BOZO to want to drop THAT much on one of his new Charvel Guitars!
