In Back to the Future, Marty loved to play the guitar. I’m thinking if he ever asked Doc Brown to make him a musical instrument, it might have looked like this. Sure, he’d have to learn to play the bass, but I’m sure he’d be fine with that.
The trailer for Final Fantasy XIV’s upcoming expansion Endwalker has a refreshing rock soundtrack. It turns out the theme doesn’t end there. Square Enix teamed up with guitar experts Fender to create limited-edition Stratocasters with visual touches inspired by the hit MMORPG.
Up until now, I thought the weirdest musical instrument was either the theramin or the otamatone. But I was wrong. This. This is the weirdest musical instrument ever. This curious looking pile of grey fur isn’t a cat that’s been flattened by a steamroller.
Unless you’re talking about a Keytar, most guitars are played using strings and frets. But this unique electronic instrument has neither of those. Instead, it’s played using a barcode scanner.
Maker James Bruton built this unusual electronic guitar that’s covered with barcodes on its four necks.
Godzilla is one of the most iconic movie monsters of all time. We’ve seen the creature take all kinds of forms over the years, but I can say with a high degree of certainty that this is the first time I’ve seen Godzilla as an electric guitar.
If you have a flair for the musical and want to redo your bathroom, you might want to do what this guy did. This is Redditor marc_urzz’s step-uncle’s bathroom. The highlight of the space is the tuba he repurposed as the sink.
You can’t have a tiny LEGO concert without a LEGO grand piano. Well, good news. Someone has created a concert grand piano out of LEGO. And it’s not just a static model either. This LEGO grand piano actually works.
LEGO sells all kinds of kits but they don’t currently make any which let you build a musical instrument. That could change if this LEGO Ideas grand piano model gets enough fan support.
Eduard Reynolds designed this nifty LEGO replica of a concert grand piano, and it looks fantastic.
I’ve played a few instruments in my lifetime, but my stint playing the guitar was probably the shortest. It’s not that I didn’t enjoy it, it’s that I just didn’t have the time to dedicate to going to class and learning it properly.
You would have to be a real Blue Meanie to hate on this cool guitar. The luthiers at The Painted Player Guitar Co. in Basingstoke, Hampshire UK made this awesome custom bass guitar that looks just like The Beatles’ yellow submarine.
You gave a concert in that? You’re braver than I thought. This Millennium Falcon Violin sadly, has no strings, so you can’t play it, but you can hang it on your wall and admire it.
Artist Richard Symons created this cool sculpture around a real violin.
You played a concert with that thing? You’re braver than I thought. Remember that Star Wars medley video from Player Piano that went viral? Turns out you can now own the Millennium Falcon piano featured in the video.
We have seen people make music using some strange instruments over the years. The use of hard drives as MIDI instruments to make music comes to mind. Now we have an orchestra, if you can call a bunch of dudes that bang on obsolete office equipment an orchestra.
Arpeggio is an impressive self-driven robotic player piano system developed by Nick Morris of Majestic Pianoworks. This robot performs at a virtuoso level and it actually does so while sitting at the piano, just like a human does.
