ChordStrike: Moog Introduces Revolutionary New Guitar
I’m not one to typically lust after music gear, but this new guitar created by the geniuses over at Moog has me putting my credit card in a block of frozen ice to prevent me from pre-ordering it. Not only does this guitar feature infinite sustain on all strings (similar to what an EBow can provide for single strings), but it also sports the ability to mute any and all strings actively as it’s being played, giving the guitar a sound not unlike a banjo.

The guitar’s innovative technology is not post-processing or filter based. It’s the actual strings that create the sounds–they contain a unique metallurgy designed to work specifically with the Moog Guitar’s pickups (though according the the FAQ, normal strings can be used in an emergency, but just won’t work as well).
