New Balance's Connoisseur series isn't slowing down anytime soon and with their next release, they're going for the universal language of music. This latest pair of the bunch focuses on the guitar with a clean colorway that is destined to be iconic.

The New Balance 988 Connoisseur Guitar is a black suede and grey mesh sneaker with licks of red and blue along its trim. The sneaker focuses on America's relationship to rock and this study culminates in a branded guitar pick hangtag to tie the theme together.

You'll be able to grab this New Balance release from select retailers including Sneaker Politics for a price of $170. This may be a rock-inspired take on patriotism but at the end of the day, it's just a very cool colorway.
