The Electric Guitar is a weapon in Dead Rising. 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.[1]


  • Primary: Tap the Template:Xbutton button to swing the electric guitar. Tap the Template:Xbutton button in succession to perform a three hit combo, by swinging the electric guitar right, left, then in a circular spin.
  • Secondary: Hold down the Template:Xbutton button to swing the electric guitar in a circular spin.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Template:Rtrigger trigger to go into aim mode and press the Template:Xbutton button to throw the electric guitar.
