Hutchins sextuple-necked guitar/bass


We've looked at this beast before. Just two years ago this ridiculous instrument was selling for £549 - now it's being listed at £899. That's inflation for you!

It's also a lot of money to spend on an "instrument" that is more or less a display item. Let's face it, it's not really going to be possible to even reach let alone play any of the lower three necks, and even if you just played the uppermost necks, can you imagine the weight and sheer awkwardness of that thing?

You could use it as a stage prop perhaps, just on the one song, but even then it's going to be an inconveniently-shaped piece of gear to cart around to gigs. It'd need one hell of a flightcase. I believe it only comes with a tent-like "gig bag" (see previous post on this guitar).

This seller suggests that even if you can't play all six necks it would still make a good "wall peice" (sic). I don't know about you, but if I hung that up in my house, I'd be worried about it bringing the whole wall down.

  1. Didn't Bill Bailey play one of these on stage as a joke?
