Very nice! Now we're talking! Thanks, Michael.

I don't want to know how much $$$, though. :lol:

Ah Yes,

The guitar that two people can play at once.

I can imagine very stoned musicians picking up the wrong end and being totally flummoxed.

It occurs to me that the same principle behind the Fernandes Sustainer could be used - take the output of the playing strings' pickups and feed some of it to the symps' pickup.

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I had thought of something similar where the sympathehics weren't even on the same guitar :huh: Like feeding the output of one guitar to a second guitar and thus using its strings as the sympathetics :huh: Didn't get round to trying it yet though.

No guitars were harmed during the collection of the information presented in this post.
Can't say the same thing for frets though...

Some years back the idea of a sympathetic box came to me. You would feed sound into it and have pickups on the strings to merge with your output.

The idea came from having a piano in the house and how its strings vibrate in sympathy with everyday noises. Sort of brings life into a house.

The tuned reverb box...
put a speaker infront of an acoustic tuned to an open chord and then mic the acoustic.
Or for a drone put a rotating fan blowing on that guitar.

Many thanks for the tip, love drone things, apart from my first wife that droned on about everything. :D
