Rock Out One Piece-Style With Brook's Shark Guitar

posted on by Eric Stimson
Made by Shimamura Music with Gotoh hardware

Anime News Network's merchandise coverage sponsored by Tokyo Otaku Mode.

With his curly hair, snazzy suit and fashionable glasses, Brook is easily one of the coolest members of the Straw Hat Pirates in One Piece. His awesome shark guitar tops it all off, though. Now fans who yearn to bust out "Welcome to the Jungle" on a piscine guitar might get a chance to do so, as Shimamura Music has made a replica of Brook's guitar for the anime merchandise website Premium Bandai.

It's a real, playable guitar, with hardware made by Japanese sting instrument parts manufacturer Gotoh, a body made of American basswood, and a neck made of hard maple.

It comes with a case, strap and serial number.

A serial number is also printed on the back.

To continue the One Piece theme, Shimamura also sells 27 different One Piece picks.

The shark guitar costs 270,000 yen (about $2,547) and can be ordered at Premium Bandai or at Shimamura's online store. There are a limited number of instruments available. They are expected to ship in September.

Show by Rock!! and K-ON! are among the other anime with guitars recreated in real life.
