Cort T-34 (unsure if it's named after the tank) which someone has ruined by badly faking the 4000 series' ugliest feature. Otherwise it's a dead-on Rick copy - what with its active preamp, 34" scale and skinny 24-fret, Ibby Soundgear-esque bolt neck.

I had one, mine was pretty:

How did they get away with the body shape without being assaulted by His High Rickenbackeriness?

It's not really that much like a Rick, really. If you rounded off the corners on the insides of the horns I don't think there'd be any real similarity.

Rickenbacker have registered all their designs as trademarks, and that's very specific - almost certainly means they can't do anything about instruments that are blatantly influenced by the look, but don't precisely copy anything - like this:

The only thing here which is a spot-on clone of the RIC design is the scratchplate - which is a shape they never trademarked!

That's just a Chickenbacker with a body shaped like it was cut using a faulty router.

Not really ruined, it looks like the scratchplate has been stuck on - can't see any screws. Might have made the paint underneath a bit manky though.
