71 Anthem-Rocking Axes

Inspired by the End of Guitar Hero

— February 10, 2011 — Pop Culture
Over the years, guitar designs and shapes have gotten incredibly creative, ranging from gun-shaped guitars to Hello Kitty axes. Sadly, the end of Guitar Hero means that fans will never see these obscure instruments making it to their console due to the game's poor sales. With high prices and the inevitability for fans to ditch the game for the real thing, the company is putting an end to new production.

Here are some anthem-rocking guitars that could've been the new generation of gaming axes for the great Guitar Hero game.
