    Default Instrument Weapons: The Axe

    I was thinking of making a strength based Thri Kreen Bard (a terrible idea, I know,) and long story short: I have no idea how to make a guitar/greataxe. Would there be any penalties to the weapon attack/damage or the perform check? Would a battleaxe be better? Obviously it would be an exotic weapon, and I'm fine with that (this character is going to suck anyway, why not waste a feat?)

    I mean, you have four arms... just use a greataxe with two and a guitar with the other two.

    I was going to use an Axe guitar in one and an Axe bass in the other actually.
