Which is why I'm now on his email list for when it ships. But which fretless to attach it to? The Strat already has a Roland fitted to it, not sure how it might go on the Godins (which already have potentailly three separate outs now that I'm preferring the stick-on piezo sound...) The Yamaha needs work but this would be a good excuse...

Edit: Oh. I see, standard 13-pin in means you can use any existing fitted guitar! I'm really going to need a 13-pin A/B/C switcher.

hey if you find a switch or merge let me know
i've looked for one forever
i've found split , one guitar to several units
but not multiple guitars to one ( or more ) units

Its not too difficult to build one, you just need to remember that everything has to be isolated / buffered with fair attention to screening on your track layout to prevent crosstalk and hum.

A reasonable sound electronics engineer should be able to knock one up pretty quick, but one-offs are not cheap.

I checked with my electronics guy and
the major problems seems to b with the
power support.
You'd have to shut that of for a short period ( like a few ms)
to avoid noise and problems
or you would have to build several power
suppliers to the different guitars
and as you said it's not that cheap.
On the Ygg guitar we solved that issue with having just one circuit and 2 hex microphones
so when switching necks there's no disruption in power.
but when i played with more then one guitar i had to shut the vg
before switching guitars.

Even if you got the box perfect, you would have to switch guitar set-up on the VG side.

Could be a MIDI generated signal, the more you look at the design, the more expensive it gets.
