Suitable for menaces of all ages, JHS have added  an Electric Guitar to their range of Beano-inspired instruments, featuring classic images from the worlds longest-running comic, plastered over its single cutaway full-sized body.

The Beano Electric Guitar is the latest addition to the firm’s collection of The Beano themed musical instruments, released just in time to lift those post-Glastonbury blues.

The model also features a single set-in maple neck, two powerful double coil pick-ups and sustain via its three way switch and independent volume and tone controls.

“The die-cast adjustable Tune-O-Matic chrome bridge and tail piece, plus enclosed machine heads provide stable tuning and great intonation, making the BNEG99 a true players’ guitar,” say JHS.

• The Beano Full-Sized Electric Guitar retails for £139 and purchase entitles buyers to a free Beano comic download. Check out the full range on the JHS web site
