This is ugly but…… I love the brilliance of the idea. “A guitar that’s just a pickguard”. Love it for that.

I had to look twice, was it an optical illusion? Or see through body? Nope
Why???
I can see the artistic design reasons, but to actually produce it and expect sells :man_facepalming:

I’m in NYC for the weekend and popped into a Sam Ash for fun and saw this Batman Bass hanging on the wall. Never heard of Scorpion before.

I was debating putting this in bass porn but it’s not my style. But one bassist’s freak is another’s porn eh?

Upon closer inspection, I think what pushes it from porn to freak to me is the pick guard. The three separate pieces look like they were just schlopped on there.

I prefer pick guards that are a single piece like the PJ above it. I think even the jazz style pick guard turns me off a bit.

Yikes. It would take a whole beat just to push the string down to the fretboard.
