Guitar is the second episode of the second season of Drake & Josh.


Drake is ecstatic when he wins tickets to a concert and a guitar autographed by his idol, but Josh accidentally sets fire to the instrument and must find a way of replacing it before Drake finds out. Meanwhile, Walter tries to spend some quality time with Drake, but things don't go as planned.


In the opening comments, Drake nudged Josh complain about each other's sleeping habits.

Drake has a "party" to try and win tickets to see his favorite band, Zero Gravity. The 9th caller would win. Megan is the 9th caller but Drake persuades her to give him the phone. So Drake wins tickets to his favorite band's concert, Zero Gravity, and he also gets an autographed Cherry Red Fender Stratocaster signed by the lead guitarist, Devin Malone. Josh plugs it into Drake's bad amplifier to show Megan how an electric guitar works until the guitar explodes. After the guitar was caught on fire, Josh decided to hide the guitar before Drake comes. After Megan leaves, Drake asked Josh where his guitar was as Josh told him that he putted away.

Josh tries to buy a new one and get it autographed before Drake finds out. Meanwhile, Walter struggles to bond with Drake. Then, Drake finds Josh backstage while Devin Malone signs the guitar. Drake found out about the whole thing, so he wasn't mad. Then, Josh slammed the guitar case closed which jammed Devin's fingers, which meant Devin couldn't perform that night. Josh tells the manager and Devin that Drake's a very good player and knows all of the songs they played. To prove his point, the manager gives Drake a guitar and he plays two of Zero Gravity's songs and are successful. So, Drake performs on stage instead of Devin Malone.

The manager for Devin Malone comes to Drake and Josh's house, and he gave Drake money for performing. Drake then gives the money to Josh for thanking him for buying a new guitar. Josh had enough for his tanning bed, and possibly a decent haircut. At the end, Drake then celebrates the life of a Rockstar but Megan forces him to do her math homework.

During the end credits, Drake and Josh are both singing a song about planets while the man tells them to hang up the phone.

  • Guitar World is clearly a parody of Guitar Center.
  • The radio voice is none other than Dan Schneider's voice.
  • When Josh claims to Drake that he lost the key to the guitar case after throwing it out the window, a young boy is heard telling his mother that there is a key on the sidewalk. That could possibly be Robbie, the young boy who lives next door to Drake and Josh as seen in the future episodes Josh Is Done and Tree House.
  • Josh mentions the tanning bed he was saving up for in the later episode Driver's License when he revealed it didn't work.
  • This is the second and last appearance of the Rock Shock Concert which returns from the Season 1 episode Grammy.
  • This episode along with Pilot, Dune Buggy, Blues Brothers, Driver's License, Number 1 Fan and The Gary Grill are not available on any streaming services due to licensing issues with material used in the episode (likely due to the Stratocaster name being trademarked by Fender). However, the episode was previously aired on TeenNick.
  • This episode appears as a flashback on Peruvian Puff Pepper.


  • When Josh starts looking for the lock in the dresser drawers, he moves the fully open door by hitting it with his arm, which leaves it ajar. Though, right before Drake enters, you can see it's in its original, fully open position.
  • It is a little strange that Josh did not instantly know the name of the eighth planet, as he is generally very knowledgeable.
    • If you count, it took 10 seconds for them to answer the question.
