Ok there are quite a lot of these older video's, have searched FGN & can't find anything posted already, so I'll post it.
I find this very interesting.....But also think.....why would you bother, especially with VG's or GR's etc etc etc out there.
This video is pretty cool thou...

#27. Guitar, proximity wah, kaoss, fuzz, fsk401 sustainer, pushbutton killswitch

You move your hand Up and Down that long bit and the music comes out of that Big Black Box behind you !!

Cool stuff. Thanks for posting. Now with regards to space on your V... The empty V space between the protruding tips of your V just behing the bridge looks like a great place!!! Put it in diagonally and it should be a great fit!  ;D

Very nice and dramatic with the glowing light of the kaoss pad..>But, wouldn't it be much more flexible and useful to mount an iPhone or iPad (or other wireless device) so that one could use the pad for more than just (low budget) effect processing.

I guess some folks really like the idea of built in processing...and it is nicely dramatic....

Agree, But...Don't think iPad's & iPhone etc where even thought of when this person made this.
This is Future Guitar Now thats why I posted it here  ;)
I'd prefer your way (than this) of putting different things into a guitar anyway.

Yes, that's very true that the iPhone and iPad weren't available at that time.  However, there were other touch sensitive strips and other unique controllers which could have been attached to a guitar to provide interesting MIDI control for external devices such as the I-Cube systems.

I had been considering installing I-Cube based controls in my most recent guitars, but decided against it since an iPod Touch is so affordable nowadays.
