Description

Although shaped like a guitar, this musical instrument has no strings and doesn't make a sound unles it is connected to a computer, using the MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) system. Sensors on the guitar measure how hard it is 'strummed', thus affecting the notes the computer produces. It was made by Harvey Starr.
