I was really pleased with a post I did back in 2017 titled Rock On, Santa, Rock On. It took years of collecting pictures of Santa playing a guitar to get enough to think about using them in a post. Then I Googled like crazy to find more. It was a lot of work, and deserves to be on ElvisBlog again.
I won’t be writing about my Elvis this time. In honor of the Christmas holidays, this post will be all about Santa. Over the years, I’ve built a huge file of unusual Santa Claus images. Like the one above. I just love this picture of him rocking out on a guitar.
Here’s a totally different take, but equally cool, to me. I hope you like these images of Santa playing a guitar, because I’ve got a lot of them.
Most of the images have Santa playing electric guitars, but this one is acoustic. I label all my pictures with something descriptive; so I call this one Santa with One Leg and Two Feet.
This Santa doesn’t look like he moves around much playing his guitar. I labelled him Santa with Big Black Boots.
This is the first of several rockin’ Santas wearing sunglasses. I’ve got many pictures of him in different activities wearing shades. They will certainly show up in another ElvisBlog post around Christmastime some year.
How do you like the square red lenses on this Santa’s sunglasses?
I call this one Aging Hippie Santa. It reminds me of an old buddy of mine, and I really like it.
Hey Santa, where’d you plug that cord in?
Based on Santa’s coat and sombrero, I thought this was the flag of Mexico. Actually, it’s the Texas state flag.
How do you think this Santa can play this guitar with gloves on?
This reminds me of Elvis doing his karate kicks on stage. You need to get that leg up a little higher, Santa.
More pictures of Cool Santa wearing sunglasses while playing the guitar.
I labelled this one ZZ Top Santa.
Back to full-figured Santa. Missing a finger, though.
I call this one Santa the Bluesman. He just exudes soul.
This Santa’s fingers on the frets make it look like he is really playing the guitar. Most of the other pictures just have him holding the neck.
I don’t think you can play an acoustic guitar wearing gloves any better than you could an electric one. I labelled this one Campfire Santa, imagining him sitting around a campfire pickin’ and singin’ songs for the elves.
I call this Coca-Cola Santa. Doesn’t he look like the images in those old Coke ads? There weren’t any flying V guitars back in those days, though.
Here’s a couple more Santas playing Flying V guitars.
They are both among the happiest looking Santas in this pictorial spread.
As you have seen, people have created some wild images of Santa. This is the one of two I have with him chomping on a stogie.
Here is the second one. Nobody drew Santa smoking a pipe.
How do you like Santa in a muscle shirt and sporting tattoos? I like the Christmas tree guitar. What happened to your legs, Santa?
This is kind of a strange pose. I suppose Santa is slamming his guitar on the stage, like Jimi Hendrix or Pete Townsend.
We’ll end with this one. I wish the picture was sharper, but it’s a blow-up from a small image. Great concept.
And here is a picture I found since the original posting.
Santa and his reindeer band
Have a Merry Christmas everybody
