Looking for a new guitar ? Check this one out.

I came across this wonderful piece of Guitar madness in the book, Amazing Guitar Facts and Trivia. In 1984 Pat Metheny went to Manzer Guitars and asked them to build him a guitar with as many strings as possible. The result was the Pikasso, which has 2 sound holes and 4 necks. The Pikasso weighs 6.7kg, has 42 strings and when tuned to concert pitch is under 450kg of pressure.
Even the thought of tuning it gives me a headache. Check out the Pat Meheny video as well.
