★ The 37 Craziest Guitar Shapes of All Time

My buddy went to Japan a while back and sent me this picture taken in a Japanese music store. It got me thinking about the wide range of body styles way beyond the norm that exist-- and hence this guitar blog post of the craziest, most amazing and most hilarious guitar shapes...

It is well known that a number of guitarists are closet nerds (Led Zep and Lord of the Rings anyone?) It is not surprising that fantasy shapes abound, from Yngwie's astonishing custom (below) to many dragon-esge motifs. Also seen are macabre and hellish themes..

The sword is the most epic. That's for sure. Especially since it has a hard shell case molded for it.

There is nothing manly about holding a giant penis, unless it is your own. That's just gayer than fuck.
