And it isn't even a woodworking tool.
Travis Stinson and I have been trading e-mail about guitars and other accessories, and he got me started looking on eBay at guitars. (Like I need another one.) I came across a good deal on this:
It's a Variax by Line 6. This is not your regular electric guitar. It uses fancy electronic modeling to accurately emulate the sound of a wide variety of guitars, from a Les Paul and Stratocaster (several versions of each) to hollow body jazz guitars, to Martin acoustic guitars, a Guild acoustic 12-string, a banjo, a Dobro, and a sitar. I never was real fond of red guitars, but now I've got about 25 of them...all in this one box. I'm going to seriously consider refinishing this one to a color I like better. (Or maybe even making a new body for it. Heck, I've got the necessary tools.)
Gimme a bit of time to play with it and I'll see if I can record a few sound samples so the rest of you can hear some of the different guitars this thing is capable of sounding like.
At least it matches the smiley...
