I had always been aware of this product- but only press release, never seen one up close

it has Wired segmented frets like a Guitar Organ and very low latency directly driving the Oberheim Expander 

It was marketed in USA as Ampeg PATCH 2000 Guitar Synth

I understand the special shoes were necessary to operate the pitch and glide pedals. A magnetic "footprint" would activate them.   ;D

The advert's aviator glasses dude: why we can never go back to the seventies. Why many of us are in the Seventies Media Witness Protection Program for our own good.


I remember this guitar synth being advertised, would have loved to have tried it out.

I remember the guitar they were marketing this with was the Hagstrom Swede but I never saw one of the guitars set up for this, just ads in guitar magazines and years later Don Mock's setup.
