    So, wait, is Gittler back in business?

    I read about those in 1986-7 when they were being produced...

    Must be rough having to make a conscious effort all the time to make sure whatever you play doesn't go sharp... :meh:

    I wouldnt think so... That guitar seems to have nothing to regulate how far you're able to press down the strings.. A Stick at least has an actual fretboard under it

    I tried playing an Ibanez guitar that had a scalloped (sp?) fretboard, totally useless. Me that is. At playing it. :)

    The frets on the Stick are huge. And typically, the strings are very low tension. So, it's easy to get a quarter-tone bend before you hit the fretboard. Sure on the Gittler you could go farther than that, but that's already bad enough. ;)

    You need very soft touch.. This would probably fit the Air Guitar World Championships, by the way :D

    I understand... I have never played one so I really cant say with any certainty what it's like..
