The biggest guitar - level 1
This is news is about a guitar. The guitar is the biggest guitar in the world. It is 43 feet long (13 metres) and 16 feet wide (almost 5 metres). It weighs 2,255 pounds. That is over a thousand kilos.
The guitar is really big, but you can still play it! Scientists built it in Texas 10 years ago. It took a year to build it. They built it in a university.
There are more guitars at the museum. The museum is only about guitars. There is another guitar which is also special. It is from a mammoth’s tusk.
Difficult words: mammoth (an animal which does not live anymore, and it looked like a big, hairy elephant), tusk (an animal’s big tooth), special (rare).
