Just what every music-loving Sasquatch researcher needs: the Bigfoot Guitar.

Obviously, I should have one for the museum.

In this photo released by the Miami Beach Guitar Festival, guitar maker George Marlin strums on his Bigfoot creation at the Miami Beach Guitar Festival Sunday, April 13, 2008, in Miami Beach.

The three-day festival that ended Sunday, attracted guitar makers, musicians and guitar collectors from around the United States. According to the National Association of Music Merchandisers, there are 30 million active guitar players in the America, accounting for more than $1.5 billion in guitar sales annually.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Is it a guitar, or a bass?

    Imagine having Bigfoot as an unlockable character of ‘Guitar Hero IV’. Sweet! 🙂

    I can’t resist. I bet you can make some good Toe Jams with that one! Get it? Toe Jam? LOL 🙂

    That is quite the instrument. I actually just bought a new guitar myself. Pretty cool. Music and Cryptozoology, two of my favorite passions.

  3. squatchwatcher responds:

    That is what we would call a six string, a bass has four or five strings, depending on what type of music you play. In other words it is a guitar. Does anybody know what company made the guitar?

  4. planettom responds:

    The guitar appears to have been made by a guy named George Marlin. After a quick Google search, seems he is an independent guitar maker/designer.

    It is a guitar. Bass has 4 strings. Guitar has 6 as I’m sure you know but just overlooked looking at the strings. Anyway, how awesome is that! Are those available for purchase do you know Loren? I would love to have that. Though I’m not any good. Still would be KOOL!

    Thanks guys for pointing out the stupidity of my query 😛 😉

    It is really a beautiful instrument, the maker is a true craftsman.

    Wow, Kule guitar! Except for part of the body shape; well, mostly the bout, and the… uh – toes… it reminds me a little of my Gibson Corvus (1983 Corvus III), with the three single coil pickups, etc. I love just about any guitar with an animal related name: Fender Jaguar, Gretsch White Penguin, Gibson Firebird – the list is not so short, really.

    FYI – bass guitars — USED to always have only four strings. Since the 1990s, though, it’s become quite common for them to have five, six, or even more strings. One of my co-workers has a 7 string bass. A bit excessive, IMO. Electric guitars are often made in 7 string versions these days also. Personally, I think four is plenty for bass, and six for guitar.

    Man, I’d love to strum that bigfoot! LOL!

    You can find his guitars here

    Hope this helps
