The Pikasso I, is a custom-made instrument created for Pat Methney by Linda Manzer. It has 42-strings and three necks. Its name is inspired by the paintings of Pablo Picasso, where multiple views of objects overlap simultaneously in the cubist style.
It can be heard on Methney's recording of "Into the Dream" and on the albums Quartet, Imaginary Day, Jim Hall & Pat Metheny, Trio->Live, and Metheny Mehldau Quartet, his 2007 second collaboration with pianist Brad Mehldau. The guitar can also be seen on the Speaking of Now Live and Imaginary Day DVDs.
