No love trying to find it even after putting the "." back in. Try just posting the link.

That is quite a weird guitar indeed!


I wish I could help, but I've never seen a guitar like that before.

Without knowing any details it looks like a chop shop guitar.

Headstock looks like a parker rip off, no idea on the neck, body looks like the lower horn has been cut off or reworked. Looks like a custom job or bits and pieces Frankensteined.

UNIQUE GUITAR. ONE OF TWO BEING MADE, (THE SECOND ONE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION - THE LAST PHOTO SHOWS THE HEAD/TRUSS ROD BEING MADE )

THE HEADSTOCK IS MADE OF STEEL AND IS BRAZED TO THE TRUSS ROD MAKING A REALLY STRONG NECK. THE NECK IS MAHOGANY WITH ASH INSERTS. THE MAHOGANY ,NOT THE ASH, MARKS THE 3,5,7 FRETS ETC . THE DOUBLE NUT ARRANGEMENT IS TO ALLOW GOOD ACCESS TO FRETS AT THE HEAD.

THE BODY IS SEMI HOLLOW WITH A FLOYD ROSE BRIDGE WITH ONE PICKUP. THIS GUITAR HAS BEEN WELL USED AND CAN BE SEEN BEING PLAYED ON YOU TUBE (UNIQUE GUITAR SANDFOX )..

LOVE IT OR HATE IT ( ONE PERSON LOVED IT ENOUGH TO WANT US TO MAKE ANOTHER ) IT'S DIFFERENT!


looks like this is the only info you're gonna find

That is indeed a one-off guitar.

Those inlays would take a hell of a lot of getting used to.

There's an awful lot about that guitar that would take a lot of getting used to. It's sort of an abomination. Looks like a locking nut in front of a zero fret?

I wouldn't touch that thing with a ten foot pole. It looks like a 12 year old got his hands on some power tools, circa 1986.

Nice one xD

It does look hideous I bet that 'Floyd' on it is really a detuning mechanism. A bit like cheap Machine Heads...

Also, I would say it's less of a Parker Copy and more of a Kramer rip-off with the metal headstock. No wonder its current bid is £31.

How would that guitar even work?

The locking nut is on the neck

The headstock is brazed to the truss rod? How does that even work?!
