    I wanna see Michael Angelo play the circular twelve-neck...

    That cracks me up that they put the steampunk Rhoads in there, with the statement that it "uses pipes, gauges and gears to create a unique sound." I'm pretty sure all that stuff is just ornamental.

    I remember seeing a vid on Reactable being in development a few years back. Always wanted to play with one.

    All of em look like fun but... So many lights...

    What about a notched up version of the ZZ Top "360 thing" on the twelwe neck? A reversed windmill sort of thing.

    I noticed 2 were used by Jean Michel Jarre. I remember in 1986 when he used the entire city of Houston as his stage. I was there along with a million others. Pretty wild.

    Designed by John Morris and his team at the Peterson Electro-Musical factory, this pipe organ uses Guinness bottles to create the notes. Genius.
    I realize NO ONE is going to believe me, but I'm actually not associated with the Peterson Electro-Musical factory.
