Samick Greg Bennett E-1

I just couldn't manage to find any information about this Samick Greg Bennett E-1 - it's quite different to the ordinary designs of the guitar branch of this giant Korean music instruments company, usually inspired by the classics without being mere copies, plus a few metal oriented original models.

There are bits of Eko and Danelectro in the E-1's design - a tribute to the times when budget guitars were more than cheap copies of standards and had cool and creative designs? - but the effort is spoiled by the absurdity of the back cutaway: it's OK to do things just for the look, but a cutaway can be useful in term of ergonomics when in the right place, and really counterproductive when like here it leaves a void where an arm rest is expected....
