hello di you need to tuning the string or adjust string tension? and is any fret note had midi output? or digital sensor when touching?
The Boy in The Striped Supreme
I want one
Veronicca Lakewood
Had one . It did midi which means it could play any sound on my Yamaha . For my money the Yamaha EZ AG is far better . . . If you plug in a midi cable to it and a Yamaha keyboard or midi bank, and you can do over 200 midi sounds . I don’t play piano so My EZAG does it good. Review the EZAG. You will be pleasantly surprised . With midi studio 4 , I have recorded my sheet music . So it’s good . But the fret board on the dg20 is awful. The EZAG however does what I need for classical and piano sounds .

I remember K Mart had these back in the day. One aisle over from the cassettes and CDs. I was a kid so I didn't know how to play anything back then.

How is the feel? Is it similar to a classical feel? The strings look pretty apart similar to a classical/Flamenco. (Asking because I am a Flamenco guitarist. Pretty curious about this)

So it's a keyboard with the neck of a guitar. The strings have no purpose other than giving the illusion of playing a guitar. P.s.: I hear Lovers to the Grave by Praying Mantis at 5:00

I believe that the guitar does it’s own vibrato but interesting to see that you can’t “unprogram “ that from your mind.

Weird! The guitar may be an instrument created for the dyslexic! The guitar's "B" string inherently has 5 #s/bs; and naturally its relative major is at the "D" string, with 2 #s/bs. The napkin shows in writing that all "written" music can thus (theoretically) be transcribed and transposed into a single picture/pattern super imposed on the guitar's fretboard ~ so it doesn't need to be "written." Napkin is available to view on facebook - cfassihi. thx. Cy
