Most Iconic Guitars

Trumpets, violins and flutes are all well and nice but, really, every kid grows up dreaming of being an axe-wielding guitar god on stage in front of thousands, shredding their way into oblivion.

And designer Federico Mauro fully understands this, having created this brilliant set of images of the instrument of choice for a series of guitar legends. The twin classics of Gibson's Les Paul and Fender's Stratocaster naturally feature prominently, but there's plenty of other extremely cool axes to observe.

Choose yours and get practising your solo face.
