Abstract

A guitar comprising a single, fretted neck 3,4 with strings playable on both sides 1,2 of the body. The guitar can be rotated by the player and played on either side, for example if the player requires strings of different tuning, different gauges, or if a string on one side of the guitar breaks. The guitar preferably incorporates a single pickup unit 11, which can pick up string vibrations on either side of the guitar. The pickup unit 11 may be adjustable to allow it to move through the guitar, from one side to the other. A headstock of the guitar cannot be angled back in the usual manner, so a tuning key arrangement and nut design may be incorporated that includes slanted slots in the bridge (4) to retain the strings in the correct position.
