  1. Leave it to the physicists to come up with this:


    and here's the article from Cornell University where the musical physicist did his thing.

    Cornell nanoguitar

    It's not very big, only about a millionth of an inch, so I guess it's not for everybody.

    there was a bit on Teck TV or one of them channels.
  3. Alright, and here is one of the worlds largest & loudest playable guitar in the world made by LADO in Canada :)

    It held the record from 87-91 in the Guinness book of records. Not sure who beat em out though.
  4. umm.. wasn't the now biggest guitar ever, literally HUGE?

    as in, it took 1-2 people fret a single string??? :eek: :meh:
  5. ok I did read both of the attached articles, but I cant stop asking "why?"

    :meh: :confused: :eek: :(

    I want to see them make a bass that size, but then again it probably wouldn't be much of a 'bass'
  6. That would be great if we could see this, you wouldn't happen to have a link would you?
