Is This 17-String Guitar Too Far or Not Far Enough?
Earlier today, Gear Gods revealed a shocking new piece of commissioned musical instrumentation. Youtuber Jared Dines commissioned a 17-string guitar from Olson Guitarworks, which Jared plans to use in an upcoming video. While GearGods called it "the final harbinger of the Apocalypse," we have to ask, is this too far or not far enough?
We've obviously seen six and seven string guitars, and eventually eight string guitars. Now, Tosin Abasi is posting video playing a nine-string, and Felix Martin proudly uses a 16-string. But 17 strings?! Take a look at this beast and vote in our poll below:
I guess we'll wait to see the finished video, but history buffs should know that Gibson already released an 18-string guitar in the 1993, so step it up!
