Some of us asked for new guns for Christmas, some of us for new guitars – but did anyone ask for a shotgun guitar? Christopher Ameruoso did when his good friend David Gilson crafted a fully operational, hard rockin’ guitar from a double barrel shotgun! Ameruoso, who deals in good old fashioned swamp rock and has designed guitars with Gilson for several years, received this custom 3-string double barrel shotgun guitar and not surprisingly got a serious kick out of playing it – who wouldn’t?
We know, we know – you’re wondering what a shotgun guitar sounds, plays, and shoots like; we can’t help you with how it shoots as it’s not shown in the video below, but boy, we can definitely tell you that it plays like a dream, especially when Christopher begins serving up some seriously dirty Southern rock from the comfort of his home, surrounded by all kinds of cool custom guitars he’s designed and acquired over the years. Y’all, this is one of the coolest things we’ve seen in a good long while and after you give it a spin or two (or three), we’re sure you’ll agree. Enjoy!
