Rundgren plays his symbolic guitar.

A recent discussion of Prock futurist Todd Rundgren got me thinking about well-known guitarists who play custom-shaped guitars. I’m not talking about guitars like B.C. Rich models that are a variation on a well-known guitar model, like a Flying V, but custom guitars made in a shape that especially suits the player’s identity. Also, the player needs to be an established pro guitarist, not some wacky dude who designed his own penis-shaped axe.

All entries must be accompanied by a link to an image of the player with his guitar. (Yes, bass guitars also count.)

Rundgren’s guitar, pictured above, is off the board. Play on!

    So the Back Office no longer has to go behind us and activate links? Cool.

    They’re not active in the Last Comments, but I do like the way you can click on the name of the thread in Last Comments and it takes you right there.

    • Yes, links are now automated. Use them wisely and with respect to others, please. Truth be told, advertising this new function was part of the reason for launching this image-heavy thread.

      You’re right, too, about the links from Last Comments taking you right to the specific comment. That’s helpful.

    Jerry Garcia’s very pointy ‘Tiger’ guitar:

    http://imgs.sfgate.com/c/pictures/2001/11/06/dd_garcia1.jpg

    There’s a complicated story about this one, which was bequeathed back to its maker Doug Irwin after Garcia’s death. Irwin had to sue to get it back, but then he sold it.

    “Jerry Garcia’s ‘Tiger’ guitar sold for $957,500 to an anonymous bidder at Guernsey’s auction in New York, USA, on May 9 2002.” – Guinness Book of World Records.

  6. Was Entwistle’s Buzzard a custom?

    http://blogs.wenatcheeworld.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/johne2.jpg

    P.S.: Having just gone through pages of Entwistle photos, man, did that guy have hair issues. He was actually the best-looking of the bunch once he started trying not to look awful, in about the ’90s.

    I don’t know that it was designed for Dylan, but the U.S.A. map National Guitar he wore on the cover of Rolling Stone http://www.whosdatedwho.com/topic/7997/bob-dylan-rolling-stone-magazine-16-november-1978.htm and played at the “Hard Rain” concert in 1976, which I nominate as one of the great rock and roll moments in the history of network television http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGcdIt_w3uE&p=669D4380496D2C75&playnext=1&index=32

    I was going to post Rick Nielsen’s Hamer 5-neck guitars (orange and checkerboard version), but I suppose you can’t really call a straightforward multi-neck guitar a “custom-shaped” guitar.

    Instead, here is Bob Mothersbaugh’s “blue potato” Devo guitar:

  10. BigSteve

    Ok another Nielsen guitar, a square one.

    http://www.aeronewsdaily.com/Tue.jpg

    That’s some paint job on Joe Perry’s guitar too.

  11. ABBA dude.

    Sorry.

    Didn’t Chuck Berry have a guitar shaped like America? I can’t seem to find it.

    It looks like Kiss had some custom guitars, including Paul Stanley’s mirrored number.

  15. ladymisskirroyale

    This guy’s guitar is sort of like the Garden of Eden variety:

    Missing Persons combines two threads: space age nonsense and a custom guitar:

  17. Michael Angelo Batio. Here he is in action on the quad-guitar with the band Nitro. This video is friggin’ hilarious (to me, anyway):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1-aix3CqCc

  18. That Nitro video is OUTSTANDING! It redefines “train wreck”.

    It has the most exaggerated example of every hair metal video cliche that you could hope for:
    the biggest hair;
    preposterous soloing (on the equally preposterous 4 neck guitar);
    pathetic attempts at tough guy poses
    horrendous production;
    explosions, etc.

    The only thing it was missing was Tawny Kitaen showing off some quadruple D implants.
