    There are almost no not ugly parts to these guitars.

    Ha!  I have a silvertone acoustic!  My friend Jehan refuses to work on it, although he keeps our other guitars (which aren’t exactly high-end machines) in shape for me.

    The headstocks are cool, but that overgrown horn makes the body look like a five-year old’s rendering of an electric guitar.

    Danelectro and Vox guitars were pretty.  These guitars are not pretty. 

    If you really want to see the garage-band guitar re-imagined, look at the low-end guitars from diPinto or the high-end guitars from Fano.

    “…the first thing I’d do is go to a pawn shop in the worst part of town…”

    No, gosh, no! I always advise people to go to pawn shops in the more affluent areas of town. Rich people have better stuff to shed.

    Those old cheap giutars do not have “magical tones”. Distinctive in their thin-ness, fret buzz and/or lack of proper intonation they may be, but magical-toned they are not. Their appeal lies elsewhere.

    I’ll stick with Cort. Amazing necks, excellent construction, great tone, massive range of features, and half the price of a major brand guitar.

    I can’t hear the words “oral surgeon” without thinking of this video dating skit from SNL from when I was a kid — NEEDLEMAN:  http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xkwult_saturday-night-live-needleman-the-dentist_fun#.UZBzM9VsPQo

     Love these.  I have seen some of these in a
    Pawn Shop

    .  I should’ve picked them up when I had the chance.
