    I remember those things. First prototype had fishing string for frets. What a weird thing. And the body made of aluminum with the huge tubes for frets on the later models. You could safely say that guitar has the most scalloped fretboard ever.

    1) There was a guitar company in the early 80's called Sardonyx that made a guitar that had a body similar to Steinberger with these outrigger rails on it. Strange looking instrument.
    2) The Gittler Guitar. No body to speak of, just frets attached to a spine. Andy Summers played one in the video for Police's "Synchronicity II".
    3) Rick Nielson's 5-neck monstrosity.

    4. Steve Vai's big pink heart guitar; i actually saw him play this live a few years ago and it was quite a treat!

    The Craziest one I've ever seen is the giant one on the TV show 'Big' that is loaded with the world's largest pickup, made by Seymour.

    The Conklin 36 fret one has also slanted frets (technically called fanned frets) This allows for multiple scales and good intonation. There are videos of Rusty Cooley playing on an 8 string with fanned frets one www.rustycooley.com. Pics of Conklin guitars are on the Conklin web site and they also have a 9 string bass... that's one wide fret board!

    In addition to the penis-shaped ones, the giant triangular red guitars that that naked Swedish band played.

    www.bunnybass.com has lots of funny basses.
