hahhaha, it does, i prefer my real russian Balalaika though

Well, I always thought this one was pretty ugly...  In fact I've never counted it as a proper build, more an experiment, but some of my friends really liked it and apparently I'm not allowed to take it apart... 

And yes it did have three strings originally, but I am lazy...

one in every garage

Good choice of tone wood...nice grain...I mean nice ugliness

Well here's a guitar that fits the right in this category...well that's what I thought when I built it... but everybody seems to love it. I even named it the "Ugly Duck" at the time, thanks for looking but don't enjoy. Cheers Taff.

nope  ..  that's  sa- weeeeeeeeeeeett  ;-)

I think this is far from ugly. A real art piece.

Throw any 'ugly' women you don't need my way ok?

Violin case Weisenborn fits the odd class very cool

There is no way that qualifies as being ugly

Thats cool.

Damn, apparently you don't know what ugly is. I'm sorry to be so blunt, but this is clueless about ugly. It's awesome.

This reminds me I should finish a Les Strad project I planned but didn't get very far on. I only wish my case was wooden instead of that sad polystrene foam...horrible tonewood.
