SMASH Is The Destroyable Stand-In For Your Real Instrument

I’ve heard of musicians buying crappy old guitars in thrift stores or making cheap props so they can smash them dramatically on stage without sacrificing their real instrument—but a company called K’s Japan is taking it a step further by manufacturing guitars designed to be smashed and recycled.

Available in either black or white finishes, you can pummel the SMASH guitar onstage to your heart’s content, then mail the pieces back to the company for recycling. Apparently, the guitars even feature a special “devastating” sound when busted up in a fit of rock rage. Besides the fact they are only available in Japan, the SMASH guitar costs $60 a pop—which makes me wonder when they are going to make a stand-in for their stand-in.
