I'll be all over this thing. A great thing for guitarists who don't play keyboards or strings to add those sounds to recordings with an "instrument" that they feel comfortable playing. Sure, it's not a guitar, but can be played like one.
Who cares if it's also a game controller- it's also a midi controller, and that's what we're talking about here. Maybe if it said fender or Gibson on it people wouldn't be as afraid of it?
Bring on some new technology at a price that everyone can afford! I've been interested in midi guitar since it was presented to the public, but have never had the cash to invest in something that's so finicky. All i want is something to trigger sounds i wish to make in REAL TIME.
I think it's cool, even though it does look kind of dumb.
