Here is a collection of 10 cool pictures of amazing custom guitars. These string instruments combine weird and wonderful designs with playability. This collection pays homage to the guitar whilst demonstrating how much imagination and creativity some people possess.
1. Bigfoot Guitar
This guitar was created by George Marlin and was strummed on stage by it’s creator at the Miami Beach Guitar Festival Sunday in 2008.
2. Emerald Bahamut Guitar
This guitar not only looks amazing but it can stand up on its own two feet. This incredible creation is the latest guitar from Emerald Guitars Custom Shop which is a Dragon called Bahamut. Taiwanese owner Lee Hom ordered this guitar as a special center piece for his world tour.
The body is a Chinese dragon that is twisted into the shape of a treble cleff and to top it all off another little dragon was added on the headstock. The body is hand shaped out of a special foam and then covered in carbon fibre to keep it both light and strong. The body is then completed with a special chrome paint that gives a beautiful metal look. Of course there always has to be a little something extra and in this case it is the red lasers in the eyes. On stage with some smoke these just look amazing.
3. Dragon Guitar
