Item #: SCP-004-IT

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-004-IT is to be kept in the Safe Objects Storing Department in Site-55, inside its own case. Whomever would like to use SCP-004-IT for tests or recreative purposes has to submit a pre-compliled module, one week in advance.

Description: SCP-004-IT is a Fender Telecaster Thinline '72 semi-acoustic guitar, dating 1980, wooden. The object is in pristine conditions, and when not in use it has to be stored in its own black leather case. It possesses the complete set of six chords size 0.12-50, with the seemingly anomalous property of not needing any replacement in time, as they appear immune to wear and are capable of maintaining the standard tuning of 432hz. However, the chords can be dismounted and remounted from the instrument, as this happened several times during testing as to discern the nature of the material they are made of. Any and all test revealed that these chords are composed of common steel. SCP-004-IT, if mistuned or lacking one or more of its chord(s), will remain as such until placed again in its case; there, with a process yet unknown, any missing chord or component will be replaced and retuned to perfection for the next user to handle.

The other anomalous ability showed by SCP-004-IT is to render the user a capable guitarist, with no regards towards the subject's previous techical or musical skills. When a subject is holding SCP-004-IT, he will feel a "deep trust in his own skills" and will "want to do some Rock", as numerous people declared during tests; the subject will thus enter a trance, during the which he'll start playing and singing skillfully the following tracks: Smells Like Teen Spirit, Nothing Else Matters, Can't Stop, Sultans of Swing and an unknown song, whom title appears to be ██ ██████ ██ ████. Once finished the series of tracks, the subject will collapse, waking up again about three (3) minutes after, declaring to feel "very happy and fully pleased bu the experience"; furthermore, he will also thank several time an individual only named as "Doc" in the first minutes after his awakening and, if questioned, will not provide further information, forgetting the name shortly after. Any and all attempts to communicate with the subject whilst playing is futile. SCP-004-IT does not appear, however, to enhance the subject's singing skills.

Note: Given the extremely safe nature of SCP-004-IT, and the almost total absence of any kind of risk, as of 12/03/████ che O5 Council deliberated on the possibility of using SCP-004-IT for recretional purposes.

Addendum 004-1, Recovery: SCP-004-IT was bought in a muscial shop in ████, █████ by Agent Lestrade, who was off-duty at the time, as a gift for his nephew. Once home, Agent Lestrade decided to test the guitar, so as to check if it needed any kind of further care before packaging. Never having played a guitar, the Agent soon realized the existance of the object's anomalous properties, and sent it to Site-55 for analysis. The musical shop was searched, but no further clues have been found in other instruments.
