I've been fascinated by this guitar since the first time I saw a video of Bellamy use his custom version. Tele style body. BareKnuckle Naibiomb in the bridge, Fernandes sustainer in the neck position and a Korg KAOSS pad behind the bridge. The KAOSS pad sends MIDI control messages to your software to control...whatever. Too bad it's like $4k. There was a thread a couple of days ago about expensive vs inexpensive guitars...here's an expensive guitar I'd buy if I could. Basically what you're paying for here is a really pro mod (I've seen some ugly DIY attempts at this) in a really nice guitar.

The vide demos show it controlling software amps and effects. But it might be able to control anything else by MIDI. I know my Peavey Transformer pedals just send MIDI data to the amp to control it. There are likely other better amps that do the same.

Interesting but too expensive for me Scott sad.gif .

I rather like the Manson custom tele - although I'm not that keen on gold hardware - still too expensive though sad.gif .

I think you would have to be clinically insane to buy this guitar, 3300 pounds?? Are they kidding or what?? It looks like it was modelled on John Merricks head!
And whats that stupid flashing light all about? Looks like one of Gene Simmons 70's flashing Jockstraps glued on the the front.
Good job Leo Fenders dead, he would be utterly amazed at the nonsense people buy these days, if I win the lottery im gonna buy this, a Gibson Dark Fire, an eight string Ibanez in black and have the worlds most expensive BBQ.

Rant over.

Absolutely there's a way to do it. What you're paying for here is a Hugh Manson guitar (which is rather spendy to begin with) with a few mods made into a production signature model. It's a lot of work to put the KAOSS pad into the guitar without making a mess...you have to route the guitar's body out, take the KAOSS pad apart and put them together.

I should have added this link before, but here's a rundown by a guy that did one of these himself to a Les Paul:

For us not-rich folks, it's not that big a deal to do without the way-cool integration. Run your guitar audio into Cubase or Guitar Rig or whatever, and plug a KAOSS pad into the computer, and just keep it within reach. You'll get the same control of the software (of MIDI controlled hardware) just not the cool integrated package.
