Default Odd / Interesting Craigslist Instruments

I find myself browsing Craigslist for interesting guitars even when I'm not looking to buy. You see a lot of strange rare equipment pop up on a fairly consistent weekly basis. Post hideous monstrosities, masterpieces, oddities, or just something you'd love to own. Just came across this '59 Supro Belmont up for $1200, one of the ugliest guitars I've ever seen.

And this American Fender with an odd "Burnt Natural" finish / walnut neck, one of 79 made, for $2200.

I like how ugly that first guitar looks.

Yeah sometimes an instrument is ugly enough that it's charming, I'm sure one day I'll end up reeling in something like that just as a novelty. I wouldn't be surprised if it actually plays pretty well.

Odd alleged vintage Japanese guitar, 60's. No logo on the headstock. Weird tremolo bridge. Looks like a Saturn, Silvertone maybe? Craig is asking for $300.

After about 30 seconds of searching locally, I found a gem.
A god damned cat shaped ocarina.

Very rare Lindert Conductor, $850, not sure what's going on with the web pattern there, looks like mesh? Why? And that headstock, I don't even...
