NAMM '06 Oddities: unlike the guy who compiled this, we've all seen double-necked guitars with a neck on either side before, haven't we readers? (See here and here). Other than that there's nothing really outrageous here, but it's an interesting selection all the same.

Krappy Guitars: "Our instruments are built for frugal people who aren't very concerned with regard to quality, construction, materials, or safety. The instruments are crafted from whatever we find suitable. Pedigree of wood is not a priority for us. We might get it from a local hardware store, or use some old shipping crates, or skids. Who knows??!!"

Elloree Guitars: great looking acoustic and electric guitars, dulcimers and mandolins from this builder in West Monroe, LA.
