The Warr Guitar is an American-made "touch" guitar, a type of instrument that combines both bass and melodic strings on a single fretboard. It is related to the Chapman Stick, another two-handed tapping instrument. The Warr Guitar is designed for either two-handed tapping or strumming. Warr Guitars have between seven and 14 strings.[1]

Perhaps the best known Warr Guitar players are Trey Gunn, formerly of the progressive rock band King Crimson, and Colin Marston of Behold... The Arctopus.
