Funny guitar designs
- 42 String Guitar - Four necks. Two sound holes. 42 strings. Two access doors; one on the upper player's side and one at the tail block. Created by luthier Linda Manzer for guitarist Pat Metheny, the instrument took 2 years to build, and when the 42 strings are strung up to high tension, the Pikasso is under approximately 1000 lbs pressure.
- The Tritare is a Y-shaped guitar-like instrument, custom made by Claude Gauthier and Samuel Gaudet. The strings twist through three necks (Spinal Tap, eat your heart out), all of which project from the body of the instrument at different angles. When strummed, the result is a “network” of vibrations that yields a sound somewhere between that of a regular guitar and a gong.
