Top 10 Guitars You Would Like To Pose Playing

"Guitar is the best instrument to pose and look cool playing. You can't pose playing a tuba, can you?"
Lemmy Kilmister. R.I.P.

And Elvis proved it by posing with a double-neck electric guitar while he couldn't even play standard guitar very well and just strummed along with the band.

But you aren't Elvis and posing with some of the guitars on this list doesn't make you a poser, come on. It makes you a dreamer, which is great.

I added guitar models related to individual guitarists but if you wish, you can add only the names of the models, without a guitarist name.

The Top Ten

1 Michael Angelo Batio's Quad-Neck Guitar

Wow, amazing, a gimmick guitar that would be impossible for almost anyone to play, real cool indeed. - machineman

It looks so epic when he does his over-under technique on this, and on his double guitar! - KeyboardHero

His guitar looks so cool! How can he even play on it? - Userguy44

This guitar is simply badass with its futuristic, avant-garde, Sci Fi design. You are gonna look outta this world, like an alien. Which reminded me that the guy in the image can actually play it. Ambidextrously. Is he human? - Metal_Treasure

2 Kirk Hammett's Headless Teuffel Birdfish guitar

Its design is minimalist, avant-garde, odd and a bit scary because it's... headless. Kirk actually played two Teuffel guitars with different designs - Birdfish (featured) and Tesla.

Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top also played one - the same or almost the same model Kirk Hammett played (in the image). - Metal_Treasure

3 Bill Bailey's 6-Neck Guitar

This image made me imagine 3 guitarists with 3 guitars like this next to each other symbolizing the number of the beast. - Alkadikce

People will instantly assume you are a god, god Shiva in particular - that god in Hinduism who's got many hands. - Metal_Treasure

4 Steffen Kummerer's black 7-String RAN signature guitar Steffen Kummerer (born June 1, 1985) is a German guitarist, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is the leader, main songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist for the (technical) death metal band Obscura as well as the black metal band Thulcandra.

It's an avant-garde guitar that might be too pointy but I love it. If you pose playing it, you will look like a very skillful and confident player (which Steffen is). Why? Because if you aren't very good, you can easily impale a band mate onstage or yourself. Especially if you play extreme metal that involves a lot of energy onstage, headbanging and stuff like that. - Metal_Treasure

5 Uli Jon Roth's Sky 4 / Mighty Wing

This 7-string guitar looks like a jewel and even has an iridescent blue brooch. Uli Jon Roth designed it himself - it was finished in 1989 and included strong aesthetic considerations. He actually designed many guitars (list to check out - Best Looking Uli Jon Roth's Sky Guitars) - Metal_Treasure

6 Dave Mustaine's Double Neck V

V-shaped guitars aka Flying Vs have an unconventional and avant-garde aesthetic. Their V-shaped body is very 'metal' because it looks energetic, bold, distinctive, assertive and rebellious. Many non-metal guitarists don't like its rebellious shape and apart from that, they find it difficult to play Flying Vs.

But here we have a Double Neck V. Wow! Dave Mustaine had at least 2 Double Neck Flying Vs (one of them was Dean V Double Neck Diadem). - Metal_Treasure

7 Michael Angelo Batio's Double-Guitars

I hear you asking "What's that?! " Answer: sheer badassery by (MAB stands for Michael Angelo Batio) - Metal_Treasure

8 Tom Geldschläger's fretless guitar

With a fretless guitar you are gonna look like a real guitar God. And yes, the guy in the image can play without frets and he doesn't play simple and slow stuff. He's the guy who played the leads on Obscura's album Akroasis (a 2016 album containing technical / progressive death metal). - Metal_Treasure

9 Steve Vai's Heart Guitar

Cute. the words: "Cute" and "Rock music" look good together...? - Britgirl

Dear St Valentine, thanks for making me look romantic even though I'm a shredding axeman. - Metal_Treasure

10 George Lynch's Skull & Bones guitar

At this point I'm a bit tired of seeing skulls & bones because they are everywhere in rock and metal - from album covers to band logos. But if you aren't tired of seeing them, do it - it looks cool (it's a bit old-fashioned though). - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 James Hetfield's white custom 'Iron Cross' guitar

Perhaps James' best looking guitar along with the one that has the same shape but is mostly black with gold ornaments. - Metal_Treasure

12 Dave Mustaine's 'Angel of Deth' guitar

That's really cool, a Flying V with angel's wings. - Metal_Treasure

13 Pat Metheny's Pikasso 42-String Guitar

Pat Metheny is a jazz player. Outta this world. - Metal_Treasure

14 Dimebag Darrell's Razorback guitar

Deserves #1 in my opinion. Love Dimebag so much - TheDarkOne_221b

15 Zakk Wylde's Bullseye guitar Zakk Wylde is an American musician, singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and occasional actor who is best known as the former guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and founder of the heavy metal band Black Label Society.

If you wanna look romantic... - Metal_Treasure
