Hi John, i've always liked traditional style guitars but for some reason there's something i find interesting about this shape, {go on ozeshin ..let me have it }. I definately don,t find it offensive.... :P

Mick

Thanks Mick, I might not be totally mad then :D

All of my guitars are 'traditional', maybe that's what appeals about this one, maybe not in green though!

Or 60 people couldn't bear the sight of the damn thing, so they rushed away without even voting.....

No vote from me, because while it's definitely not lovely, I don't hate it either.

If there was a poll button that said "If this was hanging on the wall in my local guitar shop I would probably be intrigued enough to take it down and play it before hanging it up again and walking away", then I would probably press that button. :wink:

I think a Ravelle can be a beautiful guitar. I like the shape. Not as much as a real Les Paul shape, but more than e.g. an explorer-like shape.
BUT: the colour is ugly imho, and the drilled pick guard makes it even uglier. And teh black hardware also doesn't make it look better, imho.
