Well, maybe beauty is subjective but I think the late 50’s Marma guitars were pretty cool in a funky, penguin-hit-by-lightning kind of way.
And so does Eastwood guitars, apparently. They’re trying to get enough interest to build a modernized version with modern upgrades like a pair of Chrome P-90’s and a Jazzmaster style tremolo with adjustable roller bridge.

How about a Gibson Custom Shop ‘Inpired By’ John Lennon Les Paul?
One of only 300 made in 2007, it’s a reproduction of the modified 1950s Les Paul Junior Lennon played at his unforgettable performance on August 30, 1972 at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.
Fender Custom Shop 1956 Stratocaster Relic in delicious CANDY TANGERINE. Yummmmmmmmm.

You’re not a real cowboy if you’re not playing a guitar with cactus and steer-head inlays. And if you really want to be the baddest rustler on the range you need this one – probably the earliest example of a Gretsch 6121. Available now on Reverb this one looks like the real deal. S/N 16453.
It’s a Duo Jet. It’s a Penguin. It’s a combination Duo Jet, Penguin.
What happens when you take the coolest headstock in all of guitardom and stab it onto a 1968 Gretsch Duo Jet?
You get one of these. The neck and finish put together by Dan Johnson, the guitar tech for the Black Keys band with Mark Axe doing the wiring and set up work.
This budget offset is a bargain. A great guitar for surf and indie, or pretty much whatever you want to throw at it. Or get creative and mod it or swap the pickups and bridge and give the boutique guitars a run for their money!
