The interesting thing I’ve noticed about guitar brands while putting this guitar brand logo quiz together is that not many guitar companies have adopted a true “logo”. In other words, the picture they want you to associate with their name isn’t a logo but a guitar.

Most of these companies rely on a particular font to differentiate themselves from other manufacturers. What’s even more odd is that sometimes these fonts aren’t consistent across all of their series or throughout time.

So in this regard a guitar brand logo quiz is more a test of your ability to recognize a font than a logo. How did you do? Feel free to share you results (or questions) in the comments below. Likewise, it’s a lot of fun to share with friends and see how they do as well 🙂
