We’re confused. Very confused. We’re trying hard to understand what is happening here. This guitar looks like it got caught in a blender and emerged as a whole new species.

DIY Disaster or Creative Genius?

Let’s take a moment to appreciate the sheer audacity of this homemade experiment. Might be a bass body turned upside-down. Might even be a wildly reshaped Warwick bass (or is it some other brand?).

When guitars go rogue – Source

It’s like someone looked at a bass guitar and thought, “What if I reversed it, slapped a guitar neck on it, and called it a day?” And thus, this DIY marvel was born.

The guitar neck put at the butt of the unidentified original bass (?) guitar. A cutaway carved for that easier access to the upper frets.

And last but not least, that guitar “tail neck” – don’t know how else to call it – Why ?

The Neck Tail Conundrum

The so-called “neck tail” is the pièce de résistance of this Frankenguitar. It was probably kept there to hide the neck pocket. Or maybe it was an attempt to keep the structural integrity intact? Maybe the creator thought the tail added a unique visual flair.

Unless it was just too much work to remove it, so they left it as is. Laziness is always a force to reckon with!

Or is it a handle to swing that guitar like a baseball bat?

Who knows? In any case, it’s a bold aesthetic choice, one must admit. It’s like a vestigial tail that serves no purpose but adds to the overall confusion.

Talking about confusion…

Where Did All the Scars Go?

Obviously, the control knobs, switch, and jackplate were added in their current spots. But then… where are the scars from the former spots? And what about the pickups cavities?

It’s a bit of a head-scratcher!

If this was a bass turned (literally upside-down) into a guitar, there should be some evidence of its previous life. Yet, the body looks surprisingly clean. Did they refinish it? Or is this some kind of sorcery?

The DIY Spirit Lives On

Despite the bewilderment, you have to admire the DIY spirit. This creation embodies the essence of homemade innovation in guitar design. It’s a testament to the power of imagination.

So, whether this guitar is a triumph of DIY ingenuity or a perplexing piece of homemade confusion, we’re talking about it. And isn’t that what great art (or great DIY disasters) are all about?

But we’re still confused. Very confused…
