Regardless of what materials are used, this thread should be just for aesthetic purposes.

Martin 000-ECHF Belleza Bianca Acoustic Guitar


Cole Clark FL-3 (headstock especially)

For the sake of using round figures, you're looking at $1000 for an FL1, $1400 for an FL2 and $2500 for an FL3. You can add $200 for electronics and another $200 for a cutaway aswell.
Cole Clark also offers these optional extras on some Fat Lady Models:

Left Handed -All Models $100.00
Gloss Finish Face Only Acrylic $100.00
Gloss Finish Full Body Acrylic $200.00
Gloss Finish Full Body Nitrocellulose $400.00
Ebony board & Bridge $150.00
Indian Rosewood Back & Sides $200.00
Third pickup Sensor on back $150.00
AAA Grade Spruce $125.00
3 Piece Headstock Fascia $175.00

Anyways, my vote for awesome looking acoustics has to go to either the Gibson Firebird:

or this custon Maton.

^Ive seen the dragon one in a store in NZ, its not expensive. For good reason too, if you happen to find one. They just look cool from afar.

'nuff said. some of his inlay work is over the top, but jaw dropping none the less.

if he's good enough to be employed by martin for their #750,000 and #1,000,000 guitars i'd say hes pretty good haha

The most beautiful Quilted Honduran Mahogany. Ever.

http://www.rtaylorguitars.com/Woods-Backs-Sides-08.aspx

Check out the striped ebony in picture number 7 on that link. That is pretty.

I'm not sure I would want a guitar with quilting. It's a little bit too fancy for my tastes I think.

Yea, that striped ebony is even better looking IMO.

As for the mahogany... I would want a guitar like that. Usually, I like really plain guitars, but that mahogany is just something else.

No problem man! that mahogany you posted is freaking insane. I can't even begin to comprehend how the wood got the veiny turtle shell look. So unreal looking but so awesome.

Very high quality. Probably runs atleast $10,000. Koa is extremely rare (only harvested on the big island of Hawaii at certain elevations). I've heard from a video done by Taylor guitars that a Koa log costs the company $250,000.

I'm pretty sure I played one in the store. It was $5000 if im not mistaken. It was master class grade wood. I THINK it was koa... not completely sure.

Yeah 5,000 is prolly more accurate. But damn, 250k for a log. That's impressive.

I think picture #3 is meant to be a subliminal guitar vagina.

Thoughts? Comments? Fail?

To me, Jonas Brothers sound identical to Dragonforce. So I'm not sure what you've just proved.
