There are naturally the innovations regarding the guitar itself ranging from basic to complex, but there are also a number of creations that expand what was previously thought possible with the infamous silhouette.

There are sculptures, drawings, confections, foods and even touchscreen-compatible models that all draw influence from the stringed band must-have. So, whether you're just a fan or an all-out rockstar, this collection of guitar updates will really help you to feel the good vibrations.
