Check out this brilliant Medusa guitar by the legendary Canadian luthier Linda Manzer, it is a masterpiece of a guitar with multiple necks – fretless, baritone, scalloped fingerboard and harp – and an astonishing 52-strings.

The instrument was designed specifically for Danish musician Henrik Andersen, who asked Manzer for a lot of strings and then followed his request with a cartoon design that Manzer was replicate brilliantly.

He actually had very specific ideas about what he wanted, but as we were in the middle of making the design for this very complicated instrument – he’s also a cartoonist – and he sent me a cartoon …and it was a joke, but I actually thought it was fantastic and I took it kind of seriously.
