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"
