We think it sounds very 1980s.
Well...That video really tells us nothing...Is it a guitar, or is it a synth controller, or a combination of both? Can you just plug it into an amplifier, or do you need more outboard equipment? And most important, how much is it going to cost?
I think it's very cool! Would love to try one out.
I've seen/heard most of these effects done on a conventional guitar/amp setup using the skill of the player. Doing it "by hand" is much more engaging and impressive.I compare this to the difference between the original Star Wars special effects and CGI-created effects. CGI is visually impressive but I don't have the same respect for that process as I do for the original model builders or stop action artists.Where is the skill in pushing buttons or touching slide plates?
Most of these new guitar concepts I can generally pass on but if this works as a standalone guitar and as well as it's made out to then Gimme One! I can see Matt Bellamy playing one In fact the styling is reminiscent of the "Mattocaster"
I want to buy one to add to the herd....who do I talk to about the Axe??? Please someone tell me.....at firstname.lastname@example.org THANKS.
Guitar player are notorius gadget junkies. We'll buy almost anything that gives us a sonic edge or makes it easier to play. Look at Peter Frampton and the Talkbox. It was a novelty until he hit with "Show Me The Way". Then there was the FrampTone and everybody wanted one. Get this into the hands of a recognized name with established skills and this will sell like the Rockman or the Thalia capo.
Awesome video! Very well put together.
