Highly prized by wealthy musicians, the Eldritch Guitar was first created by a generous wizard as a gift to an adventuring party. This six-stringed instrument is extremely beautiful and well crafted, and its potential to create beautiful music is unsurpassed by any nonmagical instrument. It can be played by someone proficient in any stringed instrument.
Perform checks made with the Eldritch Guitar are granted a +8 circumstance bonus, provided that the player has at least five ranks in Perform (any stringed instrument). If the owner has at least 10 ranks in the Perform skill with a stringed instrument, this circumstance bonus rises to +10. In addition, a bard who has specialised in the instrument in this manner can play it to inspire his thoughts once per day, granting him a +4 circumstance bonus to any Knowledge skill check or Bardic Knowledge check.
