This is the world’s first “unbreakable” guitar. But is it really?

Trashing your guitar is as old as the early days of The Who. Kurt Cobain loved a good smash-’em-up, too. Then there are all the people who break their guitars by mistake.

With all the available research, you’d think that someone would be able to make a guitar that’s indestructible.

A guitar maker named Sandvik has created a new “unbreakable” axe–an instrument made out of titanium.

To make sure that it could stand up to all sorts of abuse, they gave one to Yngwie Malmsteen to test things out. Naturally, there’s video.
