Batman Would Play A Martin GT75
 
I've given this a lot of thought. I'm pretty sure Batman would play a Martin GT75. His would be a black one.

Spiderman shreds all over batman

Spiderman's fingertips would rip the strings.

And I don't think Batman would play guitar. Too celebratory. Would get in the way of brooding.

Batman would play the cello.

steelyfan 10th November 2009 05:55 PM

And Alfred would play violin. LOL. kfhkh

How about this for The Hulk (tm)

Nope, but Bruce Wayne would.

This one goes without saying - the Silver Surfer (tm), although I'd feel a bit weird playing a guitar with a picture of me on it:

Oh no you didn't. Not in a thread about Batman and Martin GT75's. Besides, Chuck Norris would pound SPiderman's ass and Frankenstein stomps Chuck Norris.

Exactly fvcking right. Steelyfan, as a Steelyfan, that's about the level of taste we expected from you. Has Steely Dan ever brooded? Don't think so.

Doesn't the Silver Surfer guitar have a picture of Joe Satriani on it?

Wondering,

Adam West's Batman, for sure. But it would be that color. And there would be many go go dancers gyrating wildly in no rhythmic relation to the music.


The scroll, by itself, is really awful. But it's saved, somehow, and barely, by the organic charm of the body. Still, that scroll is really awful.

I can feel the howl of feedback from here and it's not even plugged in.

Very good point! kfhkh

But black *is* the correct color for the rest.

Speaking of the Silver Surfer, here's my first guitar, with the Silver Surfer cut with an X-acto knife lovingly out of the cover of Silver Surfer #2 (yeah, yeah, I know, worth tens of thousands, let's move on)... it was an $18 special at the local White Front (a 60's discount department store, not an anti-immigrant group). Now... 18 bucks was a hell of a lot more money back then but you'd be ticked off to pay a non-inflation adjusted 18 clams for this guitar now, even if it was brand new...

Did you do the cutting? Have you forgiven yourself yet if so?
