1960s/70s Japanese "Idol" guitar
In these days of hysteria-laden karaoke-style TV talent contests, "Idol" is a bit of a dirty word. However, here is one Idol that shouldn't have been strangled at birth. It's a Japanese-made electric guitar with an exaggerated wide body shape, and whilst I'm not suggesting for one moment that it's a surefire great player, I think we have to admire it for its coolness factor. It'd look great in a video if nothing else!

Currently being auctioned on eBay with a negligibly low starting price. I wonder what it'll fetch?
[Edit: it eventually sold for US $115].
