The shape of that would actually look quite good if it wasn't for the odd bump by the bottom strap button. Otherwise a few details keep it from working, like the look of the neck and the pickups. As a concept it's actually quite nice. Sort of a Mockingbird/Explorer hybrid.

It would certainly be more attractive if it was concave instead of convex, but it's probably not that bad as it is. Reminds me a bit of the Epiphone Evolution.

I think the gold on gold kind of kills it. Add black pickup surrounds and black hardware and it would be better.

I've always had a sly semi for the reverse firebird.

Speaking of reverse guitars...

Dipintos aren't ugly! They're campy, but they ain't ugly!
