I'm watching it now.

It's cool they've got Lou Reed trying out, considering he made a whole album of feedback loops

EDIT: Dang, I want that guitar, but in reality it's just a guitar with controllable sustain system. But in regards to "synth" guitars, that appeals to me more than a Roland synth.

Wat's the ****in point? If all your guitar does is play like this, who ****in cares? Yeah, I know that few guitars do this, but so ****in wat?!!

Can this guitar actually sound like a guitar sposed to?

I saw this on Harmony-Central. It looks wayyyyyyyyy awesome. Moog continues to entertain me.

Indie stands for Industrial I think, like Marilyn Manson.

Yes, it said during the video, at a flick of a switch you can change between "normal" and "sustain".

I think MOOG would of had to of done that. If they hadn't, it'd just be a gimmicky guitar (which people would still buy ).

I'm not sure if I like it or not. The sustain is amazing, but it seems so unnatural.

I don't think that's the correct use of the phrase "going mad."

i WANT one..but i do not want to pay the probable ludicris price it will go for. i dont see those selling to much because they are VERY one dimensional in what they can do...which is ironic...

I'd buy one if I had the money.

I can see why people would like it and why it's impressive and all that but it's just not for me; I'd rather get a synth player to do all that stuff so I can go crazy with guitar-like sounds rather than trying to make my guitar sound like...not a guitar.

Massively impressive. I imagine that a prog influenced band could go crazy with a guitar like that

We've had sustainer guitars before. It does have a mute setting, which is kinda cool. It seems like a good guitar. Still, if I were Moog and going for that sort of thing, I'd just redo the synthaxe. Real, controlled tremolo and other cool bean stuff.

I would get that guitar, install a roland synth pickup and have a great pedalboard, and have infinite possibilities

Interesting. It turns out that there are people on the forum who play an upright bass. I'll make a note of that.

*makes note*

*puts note on wall*

*stares at note for a minute*

*sits back down and resumes doing what I was doing*

But the thing is, it can do things synths can't. It doesn't even sound like a synth; it sounds like a Fernandes Sustainer on meth, combined with a muting thing. It can also do regular guitar sounds, too.

I've always hated the fact that we guitarists are so goddamn conservative when it comes to our instruments. Look at bassists: they've got ergonomic body shapes, active electronics, revolutionary materials like Luthite, and tons of extra strings and frets, while we sit around on our asses cursing new technology because it "doesn't sound right." If it weren't for some of us, I bet we'd have a solid-state amp that blew the roof off tube amps.

No, I mean; I can see why other people like it but it's just not for me, I don't really like the sounds because I like to hear attack and vibrato and natural decay on a note with large amounts of gain; I'm not against progress at all.

The SynthAxe is still cooler, in a geeky, unobtainable way.

That mini-rant wasn't really directed at you; it was directed at the reactionist idiots that plague this entire community. But whatever, they can continue playing their outdated gear made with 1950s technology, while I continue to experiment with new sounds and new technology.

Here's the nephew of someone who works for Moog playing some metal on the guitar:

So, yes, it sounds "like a guitar sposed to."
