Ongoing History Daily: The largest guitar amp in the world

Guitarists are always looking to outdo each other when it comes to gear. How about the largest guitar amp in the world? Who owns that? The answer is not a person but an educational institution.

Full Sail University in Florida launched a collaborative project where students, faculty, and other staff members set about building the biggest guitar amp ever. It’s 10 feet long, eight feet high, and four feet wide. The amp is fully functional, completely certified by the Guinness Book of World Records, and has been in use since the summer of 2017. It’s even been used on a Warped Tour stop.

Funny, though, but I can’t find any information on its power output. Still, it looks cool—and that’s all that matters, right? Another story of gigantism next time.

UPDATE: Reader Peter found this for us.

Friday’s post dealt with the time Trent Reznor was in a movie with Michael J. Fox.
