10 Manliest Guitars ever

1The Wangcaster: a guitar with balls

The manliest guitar of all time. Show your virility on stage with the legendary Wangcaster. It started out as a Cort Stratocaster copy, but the hormones were too much for this baby. The body is made out of Cherry wood, headstock is maple.

2Angel Sword Guitar: plays Iron Maiden songs, slays teen pop stars

O Lord, bless this thy Angel Sword Guitar, that with it thou mayst blow Christina Aguilera and A-HA and Ricky Martin and Enrique Iglesias to tiny bits, in thy mercy. It was custom made for the Alfee’s guitar player Takamizawa, one of the biggest rock acts in Japan and Takamizawa is well known for his Angel and other Gothic themed guitars.

3Gun Guitar: Play and Kill at the same time

Play and kill at the same time with the Gun guitar. Someone from Gizmodo saw this in a Japanese Yamaha store, where there must be lots of weird guitars, have a look at the bass in the left. The price is about $700, not bad if only you could shot with it.

4Ibanez Tripleneck

If you thought Jimmy Page’s double-neck was the manliest, you were wrong: meet the triple-neck. One twelve-string neck, one regular 6–string and a fretless one configure this singular guitar. It must hurt to carry it for a while. Steve Vai wanted to use it on Sex and Religion tour but it was too expensive to carry it, because of its fragility.

5Gladiator Triple Omega: some things just aren’t as sharp as this

The Gladiator Triple Omega is the guitar you need to make a statement, there ain’t nothing sharper than this babe.

6Ultra Zone Guitar: for the reptile in you

Invented by Steve Vai, the “Ultra Zone” guitar was built in 2001 by Alistair Hay of Emerald Guitars in Ireland. Finished in Triflash paint, the reptile-like paint job turns from gold to green to red (depending on how the light hits it).

7Pikasso: play this 42-string guitar, if you’re man enough

The Pikasso Guitar is a custom-made instrument created by Canadian luthier Linda Manzer. This 42-string guitar with three necks has been popularized by jazz artist Pat Metheny and can be heard on his song “Into the Dream” and many of his albums. Seen on stage, the Pikasso is about the size of a school-band drum.

8Guitar + Bass + Skateboard = Skatar

The first combination of a guitar, a bass and a transport. Get on stage, play the damn thing and be the first to leave on your skate. Just take care of not stepping on the strings.

9Naked Chick guitar

Nothing screams SEX like the Naked Chick guitar. Guaranteed to scandalize your public and their mothers. Have a look where the jack is connected.

104th of July Guitar

With this guitar, you’re not only the man in charge, you’re also patriotic. It’s the perfect guitar to rock out on the Fourth of July. Aside from resembling how the United States of America looks like on a map, the strange but cool aspect of this guitar is the finely carved and detailed eagle head.
