Donald Trump has drawn condemnation from guitar players after his most recent NFT release featured an image depicting the former president wearing leathers and playing an electric guitar equipped with a nonsensical tremolo system.  

The images were featured in the second round of Trump’s digital trading card drop, priced at $99 a card, which saw all 38,000+ NFTs sell-out in a day. However, despite their commercial success, some of the images have drawn derision from the guitar community.
