    I could play any guitar and they would run off holding their ears

    Cool story. I, too, am amazed a German kid could understand a Scotsman's talk......I'm a native English speaker from Scottish stock, and I can't understand them half the time.
    But I still contend the pipes sound great.....they truly stir something in my soul.

    Stratocaster.

    David Gilmour is the only one I know that made it out of a Roman arena. He had a black Stratocaster.

    I think he only had to get past Seamus... that's the dog. The sun was sinking slowly...
    That old hound-dog sat right down and cried.

    I don't understand why there's any answer other than Telecaster. I'll bet more idiots have been whacked off of a stage with a Tele than any other guitar. Properly wielded, it could dispatch a gladiator and get bonus points for staying in tune.

    Ted N.'s Gibson Byrdland, due to what it allegedly could do to a charging rhino at sixty paces.

    Maybe plugged into Doc Emmett Brown's rig (the one Marty used early in BTTF).

    I wouldn't do that, there's a slight possibility of overload.

    Even a gladiator couldn't hold up to this!

    I used to visit my grand parents in Stockton-on-Tees regularly , even went to school there for a while, so I got the northern Yorkie/Geordie dialect going pretty early.
    ... and to all in the North, good neet"
    nowadays though, when my Glaswegian and Irish friends really get going I have to ask again and again.
    wait, what was that? come again, excuse me :confused: :D

    and yes, those pipes can be very impressive.

    Guitar is just no good.... I need range and defensive capabilities.

    I’m taking Rodger Daltrey’s lead. Sm-58 Microphone and a big long cable. It’s got it all, long range, nice heavy piece of metal and skillful use could include twisting and tangling him in the cable.

    The cordand strings would be of most use, Lassoo him with the cord then use the strings around his neck. Hitting him with any guitar would probably not work against his armour.
