Guitars come in all shapes, sizes, and game consoles? That's right, you'll find a selection of geeky guitars after the break.

Folding Guitar

The DeVillain Guitar Company has designed a guitar that can easily be folded up and placed in a backpack when not in use. If you've got $3,370 to spare, then check out the product page.
As you collapse the guitar neck using its folding mechanism made of aircraft-grade aluminum, the strings roll up into the guitar. Then when it's time to lay down a few tunes at your destination, this baby goes from backpack to unfolded guitar in 20 seconds

NES Guitar

NESPaul has created the world's first functional NES guitar using his original system from when he was 10-years old.
How much would you pay for one of these babies? This god of a man sacrificed his NES, the best system evar, to make a freakin' awesome guitar. Unlike the Halo fanboy who made the rocket launcher, this awesome project is actually functional

Have a broken SEGA Genesis laying around? Then why not turn it into a functional electric guitar, like the modder above.

Touchscreen Guitar

Phil decided to install a Kaoss Pad directly onto his guitar. First, he needed to find a guitar with enough space on the body (Epiphone Les Paul Special 2) and then he custom mounted the touchscreen. More information here.
The Kaoss Pad is a touchpad MIDI controller, sampler, and effects processor for audio and musical instruments made by Korg

Honorable Mention - Nintendo DS Guitar M-06
