So, let me paint you the picture here : It’s a guitar for sure, but instead of a sleek and stylish guitar shape, it looks like a sea horse went on a wild night out and woke up in the body of an electric guitar. Yes, you heard that right – a sea horse-shaped guitar!
Because what every aspiring rockstar needs is an instrument that screams, “I want to be under the sea!”
Imagine you see the Juicy Guitars Seahorse model at your local guitar store. It’s the kind of guitar that would make you question if you accidentally stumbled into an aquarium instead of a guitar shop, right?
Now, call me old-fashioned, but when I pick up a guitar, I want to be able to play it, not wonder if I should be mounting it on the wall next to my seashell collection. I mean, seriously, the ergonomics of this thing are about as practical as trying to swim in a suit of armor.
But hey, apparently, this guitar is meant to be a limited edition, which probably means they only found a handful of people who were willing to swim – I mean, strum – this sea creature lookalike. I’m not surprised, though… finding players who want a sea horse as their axe is probably harder than finding Nemo in the middle of the ocean.
And get this – it comes with an EMG bridge pickup! EMG, really? I guess it’s for when you want your guitar to scream so loud that everyone thinks it’s the Kraken himself screaming from the depths of the ocean…. And then, they open their eyes to see a sea horse! Talk about a deceptive musical experience!
And let’s not forget the beautiful sparkle finish inspired by the New Jersey seahorse. I didn’t know New Jersey was famous for its underwater creatures. But hey, you learn something new every day, right?
Maybe the sparkle is supposed to mimic the shimmering scales of a seahorse? Or maybe it’s just to distract you from the fact that you’re playing a guitar shaped like some of the weirdest marine animals.
But despite all the sea-worthy features, the most jaw-dropping thing about this guitar is the price – a whopping $1200 for a guitar that’s more fishy than fretful. Clearly, they’ve unlocked the secret to transforming aquatic creatures into gold.
So, there you have it – the Juicy Guitars Seahorse model, the guitar that’s… trying to make waves in the guitar world? Will it become a collector’s item or a failed experiment? Only time will tell.
Until next time, keep on strumming, my friends, and remember – sometimes, the best guitar is one that doesn’t need floaties.
