Largest Electric Guitar

“The largest playable guitar in the world is 13.29 m (43 ft 7.5 in) tall, 5.01 m. (16 ft 5.5 in) wide, and weighs 907 kg (2,000 lb). Modeled on a 1967 Gibson Flying V and built to a scale of 1:12, it was made by students from Conroe Independent School District Academy of Science and Technology, Conroe, Texas, USA at a cost of US$3,000 (£1,975). With construction beginning in October 1999, the instrument was finally played at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion on June 6, 2000 with the opening chord of “A Hard Day’s Night.”
