    Post Every Guitar Shape Ever [Reference].

    Hey all,

    Here's a project I've been working on - as an admirer of oddball guitar designs, I've been accumulating a reference of every unique guitar shape I can find. It's obviously a never-ending project, and I thought I'd throw it open for anyone to add to, but also benefit from.

    Where possible, I'm trying to identify unique shapes rather than models - so I've included a strat, but left off thousands of variations. My golden rule:

    If you were at the back of a smoky, dimly lit bar, would you instantly recognise the body silhouette as something different?. Disregard the headstock, the hardware and the finish.

    For example, under those conditions, an Ibanez GR is close enough to a Strat, whereas the handle cutout on a Jem is a dead giveaway. Likewise, a Guild S-100 is basically an SG, whereas the the offset tail and longer horns of a Minarik Furii are enough to distinguish it.

    Where possible, I've tried to include the "original", or at least the iconic version that everyone perceives as the original.

    I haven't delved into acoustic guitars or basses at all, and I'm light on for archtops - possibly because they're less diverse and marketed to a more conservative/traditional player?

    If possible, I'd like to limit this thread to just the reference material - and I'll create another thread for some discussion!

    So without further ado, the designs (images to follow, five-by-five):
