I liked Steinberger like the gm4s with a natural mahogany body. My brother had a white one in the 80s, didn't realize how much of an investement that thing was, and I liked playing it, but couldn't tell my friends I liked it. But if Johnny Winter played a headless guitar I can't consider it out of character.
Then there is the telecaster thing, I like the sound it makes, I even like the looks, I just never liked holding one. Everything seems so natural on a strat that other guitars seem like different instruments. I have made partscasters with strat bodies, tele neck and pickups, and although parts were cheap I liked playing it. Then I have another partscaster strat I like to play with a neck p90 on the bridge and to me it sounds like Roy Buchanan's nancy.
I never liked Gibson looking guitars at all. But I would like something like Lucille, without the gold, without the square inlays, and maybe without the ugly white binding. Maybe if not black some natural wood color would do. I don't know how that would resemble Lucille at all, but you get the picture.
Anything that is not natural would stain finished should be BLACK or bare metal.
Off I go now to play with my old red Squire
