Well, I was waiting for someone to ask about the guitar. It's a short-scale Satellite. I was given it from a friend's attic when I was about 14, covered it in stickers & put in a Seymour Duncan pickup, then put it back into my parent's attic. I retrieved it a couple of months ago, stripped it back, painted it white and completely messed up cutting out a new scratchplate from hardboard. So the nice pickup isn't actually pointing at the strings...
Nice one. You're the man to answer my question: "Is the Tenori-on just a Pentatonic General MIDI Bollocks Generator or is it just that all the demos/reviews have been done by people with the musical imagination of James Blunt?"
@Spandex: I doubt I'm the person to answer that, as I have the musical imagination of James Blunt. But I'll let you know. There certainly is an element of general midi-ness to it, although the sound set is quite nice - if you liked Elektroplankton, you'll like this.
Personally, I think the Monome (monome.org) would be a way better choice. First, trees are killed to make it, but the company contributes to sustainable manufacturing processes, doesn't contribute, through outsourcing, to governments that abuse workers, releases their software as open source, and their products are cooler (this Tenori On thing looks like plastic garbage) and capable of doing much more. If you're interested in a Tenori On, check out monome. I hope to get the smallest unit (64 buttons)when it comes out.
