Im thinking about a guitar and I liked the looks and the 'videos' of this guitar -

Maybe? It isn't really possible to tell other people's taste, but I suspect it sounds a bit dark because it's hollow. Hard to find and expensive too.

Except those aren't lipsticks.

That is just the metal blade, the pickups are under the scratchplate, like an iceberg.

But they did sound good in the demos and Jimmy Reed recordings.
