Pauline -

If this thing has any real success, one might expect other instruments to be adapted. A fiddle presents some mechanical difficulties with getting separate pickups on each string, perhaps; but if they've got good A/D and DSP units into a compact package it looks like it could be "workable," if not elegant.

Just having a reasonbly functional A/D and DSP that you could put IN your computer to get MIDI (for your notation program) from analog pickups opens lots of real possibilities.

But I'll wait for further reports before giving up $800 for a guitar that ugly...
