It's the same as asking for Korg's legendary 6- or 8-voice polysynth.
Or their 48 voice polysynth's the PS-3xxx :)

Moogs price points on all their stuff makes them very unappealing.

Hm - I recall that they weren't exactly polyphonic in the usually understood sense of the word.

Bob designed a drum machine that never went into production due to its massive size.

But they're paraphonic, so they don't count ;).
Although, there are 48 filters and envelopes... Basically a synth circuit per key. I really don't care. I can play 48 keys at a time. :)

That's not really fair. It's not like anyone is saying "oh, this thing is s**t and it's unplayable." Most of the discussion seems to deal with just trhose kinds of things you can judge without having played the instrument -- its appearance, how it might fare in the market, whether the price is to high for the typical working musician. All things considered, I think it is possible to have informed opinions about these questions without actually trying the instrument.

I don't....Sorry Johnny.

I've had ten different guitars and NONE of them indicated anything about how they'd respond and play and fit w/ my music until after i'd i spent months playing each one. Playing it in the shop is not playing in the studio, nor is playing in the studio going to be like on stage. Sound is hit or miss until you match the amp settings to the guitar setting for specific tones in a song, and that usually takes a while.
Sure you can get a rippin' lead sound or sweet whatever while auditioning the guitar...but all that tells you is the quality and if you have an affinity for it.
So imho NOT playing it AT ALL is 3x removed from really knowing the guitar's behavior/tendencies/sweet spots etc...

maybe I'm just slower than most of you. i don't expect everyone to see it my way and that's a good thing.

shaft9000 - please read what Johnny wrote - he didn't say anything about playability at all... you are talking about a totally different thing to him.

Sorry I wasn't clearer before, 7 Hz & Johnny

I don't buy a guitar to look at it .... it gets played and cared for or it gets sold.
I'm sure this is 'bad investment practice' but in my POV I'm only investing in the sound in the long run. It messes w/ my head to worry about appreciation and 'being careful not to nick or scratch it' etc. when ALL I REALLY GOT IT FOR WAS TO HELP ME MAKE MUSIC
It's soooo subjective.

So it's been a while... Has any of you seen one and/or tried it yet?
