This 42 String Pikasso Guitar is playable. Created by Linda Manzer for guitarist Pat Metheny this guitar took complete two years to get built.
The Pikasso Guitar features four necks, two sound holes and two access doors- one on the upper player’s side and one at the tail block. When the 42 strings are strung up to high tension, the guitar is under approximately 1000lbs pressure. The weight of the instrument is 6.7 kg or 14 lbs.

Pat Metheny is one of the greatest on 6 string guitar but this is really crazy. He needs a whole day to change strings and tune up smile.gif

I think he is definitely capable of playing this thing, he's one the best players and being avantgarde as he is it's no wonder he wanted this thing

I thought it was Photoshopped also. In looking at the video, it appear all the real playing is happening on the central six string and the other strings/necks are set up to complementary arpeggios.

Several times more complicated, but similar to, Steve Vai's triple neck Jem, as seen on G3-Denver. The heavy playing is on the main six string, the upper 12 string is arpeggiated with and without chords and can trigger a synth, and the bottom fretless can play a lead or arpeggio.

This is a "harp-guitar."
