Well, they needed a foil, an antagonist of sort, without having to resort to an actual villain...


Are you sure they needed one? Pickle seems to be her own worst enemy as it is. She doesn't even know how to tsundere right.

Really? Any moment now, Pickle is going to explode into a tsundere storm!

Hypothetically they COULD work, but their effective length would be rather short - from the pin at the end of the last (starting from the head) bend, to the base on the body.

So in tone it would probably be closer to a ukelele than to a typical guitar.

Notice how the "strings" bend smoothly to follow the curve of the neck? I don't think they're under tension at all. I'm not even sure they're wire strings... the materials list for the sculpture mentions glass fiber.

I think you'd have to use very tall frets all the way along the neck, with each string riding in a slot cut into each fret, if you wanted to tension the strings enough to actually be able to tune and play them.

Except that then the strings would only vibrate from the anchor to the first fret . . . and that's so short the frequency would be extremely high, and the volume minuscule.

Unless, of course, the guitar is much larger than it appears.

Actually, the first fret is the one nearest the headstock, farthest from where your picking hand would usually be.
Does it ever occur to anyone else that maybe funhouses would not be a good place to live?

Okay, to the closest fret, then.

(Obviously I don't play guitar.)
