Electric guitar
(five-neck custom model)
Hamer Guitars, Inc.
Arlington Heights, Illinois, 1981

   This exercise in excess is owned by Rick Nielson of the band Cheap Trick, who played it during many years of touring. The instrument is cumbersome and heavy, but the intent was clearly more theatrical than practical. In Nielsen's words, "This guitar still gets more applause than I probably ever will."
