The Williams Keytar was shown at NAMM in January, but it's taken them a while to get the Keytar Inc website up. It's a huge triangular 12-string semi-acoustic guitar with no neck or fingerboard - instead, there's a one-octave piano keyboard which somehow mutes the strings (I can't quite see how it operates - the keys might just push down open-tuning barre chords). There are real audio clips on the site which are... well, I wouldn't want to spoil you the experience of listening yourself. Vinson Williams is the president of Keytar Inc. His previous business enterprises include a rocket belt company in the mid '90s (it was a rival spin off from the ill-fated RB2000 project). Keytar Inc. have just opened a 10,444-square-foot factory in Fort Smith, Arkansas, which will be able to produce 200 keytars a day, selling at $999 each. (thanks, Derek)
