I'm aware of the Casio's MIDI and synth guitars, but I've never seen one of these before.
It's Casio EG-5 and is a real product of its age (the 1980s, of course) and a wonderful piece of "guitar cheese".
The insubstantial plastic body most obviously, and curiously, features an integral cassette player. Whether this is for recording the guitar as you play, or for playing your own backing tracks (or perhaps both) is not clear.
This particular example is being sold on eBay by a French seller and looks like it isn't currently in full working order (it'd need some strings for starters).
I'm wondering if this was a Japan-only model that somehow made it out to Europe. Has anyone out there seen one of these before? Perhaps you've even owned or played one? Please let us know in the usual way in the comments beneath this post.
