    I'm looking into these new guitars to add a bit of something original to my work. Do you think they're any good? Has anyone used one?

    It's going to be hard to find the right sized pick I think.

    Maybe Alesis should invest in that one.

    If what they said about the strings being able to be vibrated with a 10Mhz frequency,(just the fact that the they made something that was able to work like real string), god knows WTF nanotechnology is capable of.
    Its very scary when you think about it.
    Eventually they'd be able to make nuclear weapons using nanotech.They could be distributed by remote control fruit flies!

    Question

    Anyone notice that it was a left handed guitar? Also, that put some of those bass guitar style pick ups in it - they could have at least put a humbucker in it. I wonder if it is active or passive pick up? It also didn't have any strap buttons on it - how are you supposed to play the thing without a strap. 80's metal guitar players won't like it either - no wammy bar!!!

    Seeing as how the strings were formed from a single silicon crystal, I don't know if you would pluck them without breaking them. Seems like they would be tapped, more like a xylophone - or Stanley Jordan on a on an ES 335.

    There's an incredible marketing opportunity here - offer to inject the tiny guitars into the veins of musicians, so you could really have music in your blood

    I decided, on a whim, to go to the oldest post in the guitar forum, and see if I could learn anything. so, here I am. Had to google "nanotar" to see a pic, but it was worth it.

    I guess.
