    I like all the styles such as Moderne, Explorer, V's etc
    They have that late 50s B-movie Moon rocketship look that didn't sell well back then but have an audience today. Tastes change

    Totally have that look, that's exactly what i thought when i got my Thunderbird bass. The Firebird/ Thunderbird's came five years after these and were much better sellers. I think about '66 you started seeing people like Dave Davies using first run V's, then in '67-8 they reissued them. So, yeah they were a little ahead of thier time but not by much.

    Not to be confused with the Nanu Nanu headstock.
