Subject description: Seems to be the first major advance in electric guitars in a long time

The Moog folks have taken an electric guitar and made the pickups feed energy back into the strings (or, selectively, suck energy out of them). The possibilities include:

1) Play a string and it sustains as long as you keep your finger on the fret.

2) Strings you're not playing get muted automatically.

3) Or you can set it to mute all strings, so playing sounds like you're holding your hand over the bridge.

If the price comes down from $6.5K to something reasonable, I might think about buying one... The demo on their website is amazing.

Meanwhile, though it doesn't have the turn-notes-onandoff-individually facilities of the Moog guitar, you might try to find one of Kramer's sustaining guitars on eBay or wherever.

Nah, I'm going to get good at G2 patching first and then look up to see what Moog is up to.
