KRISTEN Stewart has shelled out US$12,000 (AU$11,800) on two vintage guitars for boyfriend Robert Pattinson.

The 21-year-old actress - who stars alongside the hunk in the 'Twilight' saga - snapped up the instruments from Norman's Rare Guitars in Los Angeles on December 23, just in time to make the perfect Christmas gift.

Shop owner Norman Harris explained as well as picking up a 1959 Fender Jazzmaster and a 1947 K&F Lap Steel, Kristen had a strum on the instruments herself while she was in the shop.

He told Us Weekly magazine: "She said, 'He's gonna s**t when he sees them!'"

The gifts could come in handy for Robert, as it was recently revealed the 25-year-old actor plans to make the most of the current break in his schedule by heading in to the studio to record an album, as music has always been his "first love".

A source previously explained: "Music is his first love! He's tortured because he avoids it. When he's sitting around jamming in the studio, it's his most cherished moment of life.

"Rob has been kicking a few original songs around for a long time, but his schedule didn't allow it."

Kristen could also think about purchasing a piano for the star in the future, as he has admitted he eyed a career as a professional musician before turning to acting.

Robert recently said: "I love the piano. I never really had any aspirations to be an actor when I was young. I wanted to play the piano in a bar, to be the old dude with a whiskey glass."
