As mentioned in a different forum, this sounds potentially amazing. The real problem will be people playing standard guitar cliches with it, as with the Moog guitar.

A question I asked before but didn't get a reply to: does it have to be for guitar, or can it be used on any stringed instrument?

Ive been contacted by guitarists all over the world asking how do i get one. But I'm a product designer, so I won't answer the question.

I couldn't agree more. The Vo-96 (previously called the Lev-96) is downright amazing. They way they describe it as "acoustic synthesis" couldn't be more accurate. Furthermore, I don't see why it wouldn't work on other stringed instruments.

Leon Theremin...Robert Moog...Don Buchla...Herb Deutsch...Paul Vo

The Moog Guitar was cool, but he has surely secured his place in history with this one. I'm looking forward to hearing what people do with it. I hope I am given the opportunity to try one for myself at some point.
I don't own anything that would make you jealous.

Glad to see that it is closer to entering production. I just spent my last major purchase for awhile though....

I think you should squeeze Harald Bode in there, but otherwise... yeah! :D
