This Nintendo Famicom (also known as the NES) guitar is proof that imagination still flourishes despite the dearth of good design ideas that we see in the marketplace these days. A Japanese dude decided to take some time out,

carve a replica of the NES out of wood into a guitar, topping it off with a gamepad headstock. He paid full attention to the little details such as including a cartridge behind the bridge, actual wooden buttons on the headstock, and a second controller located just below the high E string. No idea on how it sounds though, but it probably won’t churn out any memorable riffs
