Music lovers and collectors alike are always on the lookout for unique versions of their craft. When it comes to guitars, there are literally hundreds of thousands of guitars for sale and available to the public. But, so many are simply ordinary and mundane.

Because of this, places like Norman’s Rare Guitars and other specialty shops are greatly increasing in popularity. Nowadays, it isn’t enough to simply own a guitar.

While Oscar Schmidt Guitars are great and high quality, you may be more interested in something a little more out of the ordinary.

Well, today, we’ve got you covered! We are going to be showing you the top 20 unique guitars in the world. These guitars are not only unique, but they are also quirky in their own way, making them a great way to stand out and definitely grab some attention and a few looks!
