With Guardians of the Galaxy approaching $300 million at the domestic haul on its way to becoming the top-grossing film of the year, it appears no corner of the licensing universe will remain untouched by Marvel's space adventure: T-shirts, backpacks, LEGO sets, a dancing Baby Groot bobblehead ... Now add to the list musical instruments and accessories.
Audio equipment manufacturer Peavey Electronics, which already offers licensed products featuring such Marvel characters as Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, Ghost Rider and the Avengers, is expanding its lineup with the Guardians.
Fans will now be able to play a
Rocketmaster -- sorry, Rockmaster -- electric guitar, an acoustic guitar or a ukelele emblazoned with images of Star-Lord, Drax, Gamora, Groot and Rocket Raccoon. And, yes, in case you were wondering, there are also official Guardians of the Galaxy straps and picks.
In addition to the Marvel properties, Peavey also carries licensed products featuring DC Comics superheroes, The Walking Dead, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and, soon, The Simpsons.
