Guitar Wars?
Which instruments would the denizens of the Star Wars universe play and why?  Here's a guess...



The Good Guys (Prequel trilogy)

Anakin Skywalker Parker Fly
 

See the flamed top?  It's called foreshadowing.


Queen Amidala Ovation acoustic
 

Pretty much what everyone plays on Naboo.  But she has one to match every outfit.


Young Obi-Wan Kenobi Washburn Nuno Bettencourt signature
 

Back to basics.


Qui-Gon Jinn Clapton signature Strat
 

Dude.  He is so Clapton.


Mace Windu Gretsch Setzer Hot Rod
 

Obviously.


Kit Fisto Gretch Anniversary
 

Three chords and the Force, man.


Aayla Secura Rickenbacker bass
 

Weird headstocks abound!


Jar Jar Binks Banjo
 

Duh.


Boss Nass D'Angelico New Yorker
 

He's a jazz fan.  Couldn't you tell?


Capt. Panaka Curbow bass
 

Playing backup to the girls.


Fode and Beed Gibson Doubleneck
 

Yeah, kinda obvious.


Taun We Cloud Guitar
 

Sleek.


Tarrful Gretsch Country Gentleman
 

Fuzzy string mutes not required.



The Bad Guys (Prequel trilogy)

Darth Maul Gibson SG
 

Black and red.  It's got horns. 
These two were separated at birth.


Emperor Palpatine Paul Reed Smith Standard 24
 

If you're royalty, you might as well go with something that costs roughly the gross domestic product of an empire


Darth Tyranus/Count Dooku Les Paul Custom
 

Being a classic doesn't mean you can't still kick ass.


Battle Droid Yamaha Silent Guitar
 

Neither would last a round with Pete Townshend.


Sebulba Speedster Travel Guitar
 

They're backwards, but they go fast.


Watto Fender Jaguar
 

Two things that come to mind when I hear the words 
"Overpriced junk."


Aura Sing Ibanez JEM7V Steve Vai signature
 

This is why her fingers are so long.


Jango Fett Steinberger Transscale
 

Something that travels well and can be concealed easily. 
Oh, and it's got its head cut off as well.


Zam Wessell Line 6 Variax 700
 

Please!  She's a shape-shifter.  What else would she play?


Clone Trooper Gibson Firebird
 

Well, it was the inspriation for countless clones, after all.


Poggle the Lesser Alembic Tribute
 

A long, strange trip indeed...


General Grievous Westone Rail bass
 

He acts like a bad ass, but he's just a metal skeleton backing up the real bad guys.


Grievous' Magna Guard Steinberger GM
 

Fights harder than most even without a head!


Darth Anakin Jimi Hendrix's 
Burned Strat
 

Montery or Mustafar... they're both toasted!
