A guitar is an object found in various expansions of The Sims and The Sims 2, The Sims Stories, The Sims 3, and The Sims 4.

In The Sims, The Sims 2, and all The Sims 2 based games, the guitar performance is controlled by the Creativity skill, and in The Sims 3 by the Guitar skill.

The SimsEdit

Beejaphone Guitar
Westwood guitars have reissued the classic Beejaphone guitar from the mid 1960's, made famous by Brit invasion band Heavy Clown. Features the somewhat unique and distinguishable poplar constructed body shape with maple necks and rosewood fingerboards. Complimentary Kauker-Jolly amp with each purchase.

In The Sims: Livin Large, guitar performance is controlled by the Creativity skill. Sims will play better as their Creativity goes up, and Sims who come to watch are more likely to respond positively.

The guitar is known as the Beejaphone Guitar, and resembles a Fender Stratocaster.

Unlike The Sims 2 and The Sims 3, children can play the guitar for Fun, even though they cannot gain skill points.

The Sims 2: UniversityEdit

Superflux Über UV Guitar
Sims 2 Guitar
If your Sims have always wanted a hollow body guitar, but they're afraid of the effect that the sun's harmful rays might have on it, you need our Superflux Über UV Guitar! This guitar delivers the fat tone and long sustain that your Sims expect from a hollow body. But the best feature of this handsome instrument is the aliphatic hexamethylene diisocyante isocyanurate polymer that protects the wood from ultraviolet radiation. Perfect for jazz, rock, country and bluegrass. Pick and strum away with peace of mind, and freedom from free radicals, DNA, and mitochondrial damage.
Includes 50 Watt tube combo amp and foot pedal featuring integrated FX.

In The Sims 2: University, guitar performance is controlled by the Creativity skill. As with other instruments, Sims play better as their Creativity goes up. Also, as Creativity climbs, Sims can play the instrument in slightly different ways. For example, Sims with high Creativity can put the guitar behind their back while playing.

If three other Sims with similarly high Creativity skills get together (four in total), they can each play the piano, drums and bass, producing a fantastic beat. Since each performer will have his or her own tip jar, four high-Creativity Sims performing as a band can earn a fair amount in tips.

The guitar in The Sims 2: University is known as the Superflux Über UV Guitar, and somewhat resembles an Epiphone Casino.

In The Sims 2 and The Sims 2 Pets for console, Sims can shoot fire from the head of the guitar while playing.

Guitars are not available in The Sims 2 (PSP), even though it did contain some elements from The Sims 2: University.

The Sims 2: Seasons Edit

The Sims 3Edit

In The Sims 3, guitar performance is controlled by the Guitar skill. The reputation Sims have with you will increase as they watch you play the guitar.[clarification needed] Sims have three options once they reach at least level five: to play for tips (money), to perform a song/composition, or simply to play. Performing a song makes a Sim reach the next level more speedily. Another option is unlocked at this level; when a Sim is with their significant other, they may serenade them. Guitars can be placed in the Sim's inventory and played on community lots.

Unlike the game's predecessors, the guitar appears to be an acoustic guitar rather than an electric due to the absence of an amplifier. This means that less space is required to place it on a lot.

The Sims 3: StoreEdit

The Sims 3 Store offers one additional guitar which is effectively just a reskinned Sonaflux Guitar. It is part of a steampunk set.[citation needed]

The Sims 3: High-End Loft StuffEdit

In The Sims 3: High-End Loft Stuff there is an electric guitar for Sims with different properties from either the Sonaflux Guitar or the Dulcinea Guitar. It plays a clean electric note, instead of acoustic, and playing it at a low Guitar skill level can summon a noise complaint from neighbours, resulting in a police visit. It also generates a small amplifier when it is played, similar to the Sonaflux's guitar case when playing for tips. It plays all the same compositions as the Sonaflux, but with an electric tone to them. However, on the Sonaflux Guitar, 'A Perfect Moment' is a Bourrée style calm piece, whereas on the Das Kauker it starts off in the same way, but abruptly turns into a wild, improvisational electric guitar solo. The guitar itself resembles a 50s/60s Gretsch guitar.

The Sims 3: Late NightEdit

In The Sims 3: Late Night, an exclusive electric guitar can be obtained as a gift received by a five-star celebrity. This guitar cannot be bought through buy mode without using cheats; however, it can be sold for §2000. This guitar's pointed bottom resembles the Ibanez ICT.

In The Sims 3: 70s, 80s, & 90s Stuff there is a guitar inspired by the 80s. While it looks like an electric guitar, it is actually an acoustic guitar and plays the acoustic guitar sounds.

Players who are familiar with modifying game files can find the guitarElectricDecades OBJK and change the scriptClass to "Sims3.Gameplay.Objects.HobbiesSkills.ElectricGuitar" to make it sound like an electric guitar. (This is possible because the sound resources for an electric guitar are in the base game.)

The Sims 3: Into the FutureEdit
