42 Unusually Designed Guitars

From Sweet Confection Axes to Carbon Fiber Guitars

— December 18, 2012 — Unique
Play a few cords on one of these unusually designed guitars that forcefully go against the idea of what a standard acoustic or electric guitar should look like.

Perhaps you are a big fan of playing Super Mario songs on your stringed instrument. If this is true, the feel of a Koopa Troopa guitar underneath your finger tips would help to get you in the right mood to hit all of those notes. If you are a shoe diva who adores strumming chords, the Guitar Shoes by Chicks on Speed help to fuse both of your loves together. You can wear the fashionable pumps and actually play a few notes while you're lounging.

The figure eight design associated with the acoustic instrument can be a little bland. Unusually designed guitars keep your musical endeavors interesting to say the least.
