      I'd actually buy one of those.

      I bet that fret board feels weird though. Probably a lot like that ebonol stuff on that one Squier Jazz bass.

You have to admire his ambition and determination , but at some point , he will realize he is retarded and there isnt a pro pogo stick league. I just dont wanna be the guy to tell him .

        Actually, it didn't feel bad at all. The LEDS are place on the body side of each fret so you don't even feel them at all.

        That thing was making me play runs that I would have never thought of on my own. :thu:

          They've been making them for almost 15 years now, I remember seeing them in all the guitar magazines back when I was in middle school. I really wanted one back then.

              They make you buy the midis?

              It looks cool, but I'd really be interested if it could interface with Guitar Pro.

                Really?
                I never saw them until now.

                Anyway, that has got to be an AWESOME earning tool.

                      i had 2 of them.
                      they were garbage.
                      you needed a bloody ac adapter for the guitar!
                      not only that, but it was a junk guitar with some cool lights in it.
                      the build quality was on par with those $99 squiers....probably worse.

                        This is probably a silly question but why'd you get two if they were garbage?  Did you buy two at one time?

                          It's not a guitar you'd play live. It's a learning tool.

                            i had 2 of them.
                            they were garbage.
                            you needed a bloody ac adapter for the guitar!
                            not only that, but it was a junk guitar with some cool lights in it.
                            the build quality was on par with those $99 squiers....probably worse.



                            The one I played last night was fine. The dude has had it for about 5 or 6 years and said he hasn't had any problems with it.

                            Was it an AMAZING feeling guitar? No. But the whole point of it is to teach your fingers the notes of scales, learn new chords etc.
