…Guitars need more strings (42 to be exact)?

Pikasso Guitar

12-string double-neck guitars impress me, but the thought of someone actually playing a 42-string guitar makes me tremble in fear. The Pikasso features four necks, two sound holes, took two years (approximately 1000 hours) to build and under full tension survives approximately 1000 lbs of pressure from the 42 strings. Designed for Pat Metheny, who apparently actually plays this thing, it’s been around since its conception in 1984 as a response to the challenge of building a guitar with “as many strings as possible”. Wow, many an axe slayer bow down to you Pat, master of the strings.
