Music purists...look away! You may not like this new digital guitar but before you cry bloody murder check this out. A completely digital guitar, the Misa comes with a 8.4-inch 800-by-600-pixel resolution LCD touchpad which you strike to hit the notes. No more strings? Well yes but because the touchpad is pressure-sensitive, the harder you strike, the louder the notes will ring. The strings are replaced by 144 “keycap” sensors with 6 sensors across 24 “frets” on the neck, replicating a traditional 6-string guitar setup.

A peek into our future? Probably. But keep that Gibson..it'll probably be worth some buco bucks one day.
