Well, this pickguard might be a dummy pickguard. But what if it isn’t? What do you get when you cross a guitar with a spaceship control panel?
This guitar looks like it has been modified to be a guitar synth, with buttons and knobs all over the place. It’s like they were trying to create the guitar version of a space shuttle cockpit or something. I mean, I’m all for innovation, but this is taking it to a whole new level. Actually it has so many buttons, it looks like a NASA engineer’s wet dream.
It might look like a guitar, but let’s be real, it’s more like a musical console from the future. I’m pretty sure I saw a button on there that says “self-destruct” (or maybe that was just wishful thinking). It’s like they took the “more is more” approach to guitar modification and just went wild with it. This guitar’s been modified more than a teenager’s Instagram post.
And what’s up with the Bigsby vibrato, and the vintage pickups? I mean, I get it, they wanted to add some classic guitar flair, and a touch of retro to this futuristic monster of a guitar. Maybe they thought the whole thing was getting too high-tech and wanted to dial it back a bit. But it’s like putting a propeller on a Tesla. Sure, it looks cool, but does it really serve a purpose?
All in all, this guitar looks like a true marvel of engineering, but I have to wonder, who is it really for? It’s like a guitar that’s having an identity crisis, trying to be a synth, a spaceship, and a guitar all at once. I mean, I’m all for trying new things, but maybe we should let the guitar be a guitar, and the synth be a synth. But hey, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe this guitar synth hybrid is the future of music. Maybe it’ll revolutionize the way we think about guitars. Or maybe it’ll just confuse the hell out of anyone who tries to play it. Either way, it’s definitely a sight to behold.
