This page features several types of instruments that don't fit in any other category. First - the handmade guitars, arguably the craziest instruments you're likely to see. Don't forget these are not your boring and practical mass production designs, each of these masterpieces is actually a dream guitar of its' creator.

Refinished and upgraded instruments are something that collectors hate to see, but it's a class on its own. Most of the cheesy upgrades are actually a sort of guitar abuse, some of those upgrades are so painfully ugly we simply had to show them here.

A couple of instruments on this page are professionally hotrodded or repaired guitars, they look and play much better than any other instrument from this site. We still put them here because they are based on our beloved ugly and cheesy logs.

The last group of instruments here is different kinds of artwork utilizing Jolanas, Musimas and other cheesy guitars.
