90 Keytar

This is basically a guitar and a keyboard combined. How is this not higher? - Rorywilbren

91 Charango

Delightful like a ukulele but also has a substantial amount of volume produced by its ten strings. This South American string instrument allows for accompaniment and virtuosity.

99 Theremin

Why are four versions of the guitar in the top 25 and the theremin is 83?!

Come on. What's cooler than a theramin?!
The theramin is really obscure and sounds like an alien spaceship!
Played with two antennas, one for pitch and one for volume, by raising your hands up and down the stems.
Look one up on YouTube, it's really entertaining to watch/listen to! :D
