    I kinda like this one. Weird that it has 3 pickups but no switch though.

    The Kensington reminds me of a car that has a bunch of body parts salvaged from other cars.... A white hood, brown passenger door, green rear quarter.

    It needs to lose the dog-ear and the metal control plate (I'm assuming it's metal... kinda hard to tell), and move the switch up to the lower horn, or at least above the V/T knobs. I'd keep the f-hole.

    I agree with @CyFan4036 about the 'Noir'. The first thing I looked for was a tulip-shaped headstock. Nothing can help that design.

    I could get down with the Painted Lady, but I'd definitely replace the PG and add a tone control. Probably another pickup.... Maybe I can get one cheap when they go out of business, but there's no way in fuck I'm gonna pay those prices and wait 4 months... Then hope it's not crap when I get it. What's their return policy? Are they gonna ship it back to China and make you wait 4 months for a replacement?

    These guitars are made of fail.

    It's all three pickups all the time... Just the way nature intended.

    That looks like a frickin' Jazz Bass bridge cover on it! Yikes... Those are too big for even a Jazz Bass IMO!

    I do kinda like the body shape, though.
