World's Most Expensive Guitars - In Pictures

Some of the world's most expensive electric guitars were presented in Born to Rock exhibition.

It gathered into one place over 150 priceless guitars played by the likes of Brian Jones, Keith Richards, Joan Armatrading, Noel Gallagher, the Edge, Marc Bolan, Neil Young, and blues legend Rory Gallagher. The vast collection includes many rare and extremely valuable guitars, both vintage and modern, and offers visitors a chance to get up close to guitars normally only seen in hands of rock stars.

Wood from a steel works office and aluminium from a power station were used to make this guitar as a tribute to Sheffield's industrial past.

This is the Frying Pan - the world's first electric guitar. It might look a bit tatty, but it's about 76 years old and this is the first time it's gone on show outside America.

New guitars that have been customised by celebs like Bono and Jennifer Lopez are also on display. This one's been covered in hundreds of crystals especially for the exhibition.

The guitars were delivered in a bullet-proof van under really tight security as some of them are worth tens of millions of pounds!!

Guitars of big name rock stars like Noel Gallagher from Oasis, the Edge from U2 and the legendary Jimi Hendrix, who was really famous in the 1960s

Blackie, a Stratocaster once owned by Eric Clapton but Blackie's fetching price of $959,500 paid by a guitar store in 2004, was recently beaten by another Stratocaster guitar signed by many of the world's most famous guitarists. The Strat was auctioned to benefit a tsunami charity, Reach out to Asia. It was bought by Qatar’s royal family for $1,000,000 US. They donated it back to Reach Out To Asia, bringing in $2,700,000 US at another auction, so the guitar has generated a total of $3,700,000 US.

Check this site.. They claim that they made first custom guitar picks made from 4.5 billion year old meteorites. I would like to buy certainly one whether it would sound good or not :)

David Gilmour should check quality of meteorite picks.


Some maybe not that expensive but cool guitars

The World's Most Scariest Museum in St. Petersburg - Kunstkamera

Peter's museum was dedicated to preserving "natural and human curiosities and rarities". The tsar's personal collection, originally stored in the Summer Palace, features a large assortment of human and animal fetuses with anatomical deficiencies, which Peter bought from the Dutch anatomist Frederick Ruysch and pharmacologist Albertus Seba. Some of the most gruesome exhibits are the heads of Catherine I's lover Willem Mons and his sister Anna Mons, still preserved in alcohol.

Anthropological collections of the Kunstkamera are among world’s largest. The museum’s depositories related to the department contain 761 collections (mostly skeletal) totaling nearly 380 000 items.

The earliest anatomical collections of MAE (late 1600s – early 1700s) come from the so-called Chamber of Naturalia in Peter the Great Kunstkamera. Their history begun when Peter I purchased in Holland the anatomical specimens made by the famous Dutch anatomist Frederick Ruysch and brought them to Russia. Later, Peter’s decree On Furnishing Born Freaks and Unusual Finds marked the beginning of so-called “Russian anatomical (teratological) collection”, which consisted of specimens prepared and acquired in Russia by Peter’s order and sometimes under his personal participation. The Russian anatomical collection, like that of F. Ruysch, reflects an important stage in the growth of anatomical knowledge and excites much interest on the part of science historians.

Anatomical collections consist of liquid (preserved in ethanol) and dry anatomical specimens from the early years of the Kunstkamera, and a number of other anatomical materials. The depositories contain 24 anatomical collections comprising 1,388 specimens. They also house F. Ruysch’s materials totaling 937 preparations. The Russian anatomical collection consists of 144 specimens made in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Apart from these, the department owns many later teratological collections comprising malformed foetuses, both human and animal.

Most collections of the department (599) are osteological and total about 15 thousand skeletons acquired through archaeological excavations of burials dating from various epochs from the Upper Paleolithic to the present. Especially unique are Paleolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, and Chalcolithic remains.

Most skeletal finds are from the former USSR, but some represent prehistoric and modern populations of Western Europe, foreign Asia, Africa, North and South America, and Oceania.

The first skeletal collections were received by the Anatomical Cabinet of St.-Petersburg Academy of Sciences (later Department of Anthropology of MAE) in the 1830s and 1840s. Intense accumulation and study of human crania was initiated by Academician K. von Baer, the founder of Russian physical anthropology. After he became Head of the Anatomical Cabinet of St.-Petersburg Academy of Sciences, he managed to interest Academy members in physical anthropology and established contacts with Russian archaeologists and ethnographers. As a result, cranial remains began to arrive from different places. By 1858 the Kunstkamera had owned as many as 350 crania.

The most rapid influx of skeletal materials took place in the 1930s – 1970s, when most human remains excavated by archaeological expeditions in this country were shipped to MAE. Moreover, the museum set up its own expeditions to collect skeletal material.

Also, there are some 2,200 samples of hair of people inhabiting various geographic regions, masks and busts of representatives of various physical types both Russian and foreign, negatives and photographs of people, taken throughout the world, plaster casts of fossils, sculptural reconstructions of prehistoric people and of certain historical figures.
