Let’s dive into the perplexing realm of avant-garde guit-artistry, shall we? It’s like Picasso and a luthier got together for a jam session, and this is their lovechild.

Behold, the Acoustic Abstracto-Masterpiece-O-Matic! Or as I like to call it, the “What Were They Thinking” in G-major. Now, I get it, art is subjective, and sometimes, you just want to create something that makes people scratch their heads and question the very fabric of reality. But when it comes to guitars, shouldn’t we be aiming for something a bit more… well, playable? Well, to be honest I don’t know how playable it is. Maybe it is a delight of playability despite being totally unconventional.

When cubism meets strings, you get an abstract guitar that defies convention.

This guitar’s body shape is a true testament to the power of the abstract. It’s got more angles, and curves than a geometry class and a sound hole that’s so high, you’d think it’s auditioning for a part in a musical about the ceiling. Seriously, I’ve seen modern art installations less avant-garde than this.

It’s as if the designer decided, “You know what’s missing in the world of music? Confusion!” Conventional, and comfortable guitar shapes are overrated anyway… Why not have one that looks like it’s been through a blender at a surrealist’s cocktail party?

Now, I don’t want to be too hard on this piece of… guit-art. After all, it’s not just a guitar; it’s a statement. A statement that says, “I’ve transcended the need for things like ‘ergonomics’ and ‘playability.’ I’m on a whole different level of artistic expression.”

But let’s be real here. While this guitar may be a masterpiece in the world of abstract art, it’s more likely to leave you with abstract bruises on your ego when you try to play it. So, I guess this guitar is one to make a musical statement. For the rest of us who just want to play some tunes without feeling like they’re wrestling with a Picasso painting, well… Maybe we’ll stick with something a tad more conventional.
