The thought here was to make an instrument I could put on a plane and not worry about it. Problem is the cost it would take to fly with with something this big. I ended up using it as a test bed for a FretTrax midi system that my geniusly talented good friend Lee Young developed by creating a connection between the frets and the string that would trigger a midi system, basically turning your guitar into a keyboard of sorts. A longer set of treble harp strings giving a lower note register than a typical harp guitar format.
The one button on the front allows me to changes programs in my computer by simply holding the button while holding down a particular string on a particular fret thereby calling up the assigned plugin or program. But there is more to the story.
