Years ago I was in a high-end music store on a Saturday and I got to play one of these. I remember they used to have a back cover ad in Musician magazine as well. I always thought it was really strange but I always wanted one just because of the possibilities.

Anyways, I came across an amazing deal on the full set - guitar, module, case, cables, manuals, etc.... The coolest part is it is the EXACT ONE I played way back when! It never sold and was put in the back room. The store had closed for about ten years then re-opened (kind of). A guy has been running a store out of the old family who owned the old store's building.

Anyway, this isn't the one I bought but it is exactly like it. I'll make a video of mine as soon as I get it cleaned up and hooked up!

Looks like a futuristic weapon... Or a vacuum cleaner. I don't trust it. Not one little bit. Actually, it seems to call out for a DOD supersonic stereo flange.

Interesting! What material are the strings made of? I seem to recall an old Casio “guitar” that had these weird, plasticy strings on it. I wasn’t an experienced enough guitar player to evaluate the thing with any sort of authority. I do remember the strings feeling very slack and rubbery under the fingers. Can't wait to hear what you can do with the new toy.

The strings are all .016 and you tune them to F or G (it's about tension, not pitch).
