Could this be the most metal guitar EVER? It has TWENTY strings!

Back at the annual NAMM event in January, we heard of a new guitar that had 18 strings.

Phht. For rookies.

Behold this 20-string monster from 10S guitars of China. The Spring BH Djent 20 Guitar–meaning that like its 18-string predecessor, it requires Djent-style of playing. That involves a lot of muting of strings with the palm of the hand while going nuts with the other.

Oh, and it weighs 50 pounds.
