For the Dead Rising 2 weapon, see Acoustic Guitar (Dead Rising 2).

The Acoustic Guitar is a weapon in Dead Rising. The Acoustic Guitar is a six-stringed wooden guitar, one of the four guitars in Dead Rising.[1] Frank can swing around the guitar, which can cause massive damage to zombies. When swung, it can clear a large area in front of Frank, but unfortunately he needs a second or two to recover after whacking some zombies.

There are four types of guitars:

  1. Bass Guitar,
  2. Acoustic Guitar, and
  3. two electric guitars.

The acoustic guitar may cause more damage, while the electric guitar is a bit faster as its recovery time is about half of the Acoustic's.

While all of the guitars are effectively the same, each type has a different set of animations for their attacks. The Acoustic Guitar has sort of a "stabbing" motion in front of Frank.[2]
