The biggest guitar - level 2
The world’s largest guitar is on display at a guitar museum in New Jersey, USA. It is 43 feet long (13 metres) and 16 feet wide (almost 5 metres). It weighs a massive 2,255 pounds which is over a thousand kilos.
The cool thing about this guitar is not just the size, though. People can actually play the guitar. It was built in Texas about ten years ago as a project to teach engineering and physics. It took almost a year to build it.
The huge guitar is not the only interesting one at the museum. There is a guitar which is partly made of a mammoth’s tusk.
Difficult words: engineering (the branch of science about design and building), huge (very big), tusk (a long pointed tooth of an animal).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
