Linux guitar

Digital guitar powered by AMD and controlled by Gentoo. Looks like a lot of fun, but probably pricey.

I'm usually not one for digital music...but that thing is pretty wild. I could only imagine what he is going to ask for them when the first run is complete.

This thing is very impressive. I play the bass guitar myself, and enjoy listening to synth/digital music, so I'd be interested in one of these... but I can imagine that they'd be extremely expensive.

Really, what I'd like is something similar to a cheap MIDI keyboard, except it would be shaped like a guitar/bass neck with rows of buttons, tuned like guitar strings and frets.
Here's a diagram I drew to convey my idea:
Something like this would be cheap to manufacture, and would satisfy amateur types like myself who want to control synths, and who feel comfortable with a guitar but don't like using a piano-keyboard.
