I could live with that body shape.
Not my first choice, but... it looks cool, I think?

I've always been a fan of BC Rich guitars. A high school buddy had one of those cool double necks they used to make. I always thought that they would make a reasonable Jerry guitar with the thru-neck design and all. The Eagle shape would probably be a little less metal-ish looking. Still, I'd play that guitar.

Its a bit bizarre. Wouldn't mind playing it, but I wouldn't buy it. Pity

My Second guitar was a BIG FAT '78 Maple Mockingbird Supreme. One of the best necks I've ever played for my hand size. But man just too heavy. I've joked with my friends that it was like wearing the kitchen table around my neck. Guitar had so many knobs and switches on it I couldn't get the same sound out of it twice. But I was just a kid. When your 18yrs old and the guitar is too heavy, it's too heavy. Same thing with that frikin' Twin Reverb with a pair of EV Force 12's in it. Heavy. Had to carry that thing about 4 city blocks to the Wet Lands in NY once. That was the straw that broke this camels back.
