Another modular guitar system - the Chrysalis Guitar system "consists of a family of interchangeable components which allow a musician to quickly assemble a full-size full-scale electric/acoustic guitar without tools. The parts snap together, and the strings are brought up to playing tension with a lever in the back of the headstock. With interchangable components, a wide variety of instrument forms can be created, including 6- and 12- string electric guitar, 6- and 12-string acoustic guitar, 8-string electric or acoustic mandocello and acoustic bass guitar configurations."
"The guitar components are designed for rapid assembly and disassembly without tools, making it extremely compact for storage and transport. All of the parts for the guitar can be fit in a small cloth gig bag measuring 8" x 2" x 20" (10 cm x 5 cm x 40 cm)."
