This quite a wild idea... and pretty slick looking!

Yeah, If I hadn't promised myself to learn how to play my guitar before I bought another one, that bad boy would be in my hands as soon as I could manage :) (So Three hours, because there's one in Calgary, AB)

I still think my Silverburst SG is prettier, but the raw geekiness of that LP style robo is awesome.

cool for experienced players, but not for noobs

Yes, it's near perfect for experienced players. It will tune AND intonate itself with each respective tuning!... that alone is radical. For anyone who uses multiple tuning, this is a serious advantage to having to re-intonate your guitar when changing tunings.

The only thing that worries me is, that what if the electronics were to fail. Is the guitar still operable manually?.... I could not find that anywhere in the page.

Needs buttons.

When it can play music by itself too, then it is time for me to begin my musical career...
