Today and tomorrow, I'll be posting all the stranger stuff I saw at Messe, by way of a small tribute to the legendary Namm Oddities. First up is the Guitariano, an acoustic guitar apparently covered in touch membrane buttons (always popular), with switches on the neck, a bit like a Casio DG20. Judging from the demo I saw, it can make the finest guitarist sound like he's playing a Casiotone keyboard with auto rhythms. This page has an excellent selection of demo sounds and movies. The rendition of 'Honky Tonk Women' is particularly fine.
