We all know guitars to look like one thing – a guitar. But why play a regular guitar when you can let your geek flag fly with a guitar looking like the one and only Mario!
I own a guitar – a beautiful black acoustic guitar sitting in its case, collecting dust. I would love to take it out to play, but time is just not on my side. But maybe if I had this amazing Mario shaped electric guitar I would be more inclined to play Lynyrd Skynrd’s “Freebird” in real life the same way I rock it on Guitar Hero.
Most video game characters are not able to stand the test of time. Gone are the days of Sonic and Mega Man, but Mario, of Super Mario Brothers fame, has not faded at all. Even with the end of Nintendo Power magazine, everyone knows this iconic video game figure. From plush doll to Halloween costumes, to edible creations, Mario can be seen everywhere. And now he can be seen as a guitar, forever immortalized in one of his most popular stances.
Created by someone in Australia, it is the perfect instrument to play…well, what else of course than the theme to Super Mario Brothers! It is a full size guitar with 24 Fret!
And do not miss out on the Mushroom inlays along the neck!
