Built this Frankenstein of a guitar to scratch an itch I had about combining guitars and MIDI.
The body has the outside shaping of a Fender Jaguar, while the inside pickup and bridge placement is setup like a Fender Stratocaster. This makes the guitar play and sound like a strat, but there is extra space where the tremolo bridge of a Jaguar would be to add some arcade buttons for a midi controller. This way I have a MIDI controller setup like one octave of a piano right a my fingertips.
The MIDI craze continued with Roland GK-3 MIDI pickup installed on the guitar. I can now queue up backing tracks and play drum triggers from the arcade buttons, and then blend electric guitar sounds with whatever MIDI synths I want from the GK-3 pickup to create an endless possibility of sounds.
