Two unusual guitars

Around 1976, Fender tried to make it’s version of a Gibson ES-335: The Fender Starcaster. Around 1993, Gibson tried to make it’s version of a Fender: The Gibson Nighthawk. Neither were considered a success. (Also, I don’t think either were the only attempt by either company to copy be inspired by the other. Just interesting examples.) (These were brought to mind when I noticed that Fender has revived the Starcaster name for what appear to me to be rebranded Squier Strats.)
