Playboy Elecitric Guitars by Steve Clayton

Playboy Elecitric Guitars by Steve Clayton

I visit pawn shops a lot here in Australia and I always come across some strange and unusually designed guitars and gear.   The guitars that I think stood out the most in recent times are the Playboy series guitars.

These two unusual guitars are made by Steve Clayton and hit the market in 2008 – although he may of been making guitars prior to this time.

The guitar below is called the Playboy Covers Collage Guitar

This guitar by Steve Clayton is called “Glitz“.  This is actually a really nice looking guitar.  What sets it apart is instead of a regular Fender/Gibson style F-Hole (I know that sounds bad in context) they have gone for a cutout of a woman – I personally think this is pretty cool.  When I first “laid eyes” on the guitar I thought it was some sort of cheesy sticker, only to find out it was an F-Hole.  This is very, very unique and something I am giving Steve Clayton credit for in the design aspect.
