This is a nylon-string acoustic guitar from Carvin, for playing classical-style, with the fingers. Why is it it interesting? But wait, there's more! It has a 13-pin output. For people who aren't guitar geeks, that means you can plug it into a guitar synthesizer so as to produce synthesized sounds that track your picking. Potentially very cool! As a bonus, it has controls to allow volume control of the hex pickups and a switch to drive patch changes -- so you don't have to stick one of the little GK-2A synth modules on the surface of the guitar, like I had to do with my Jag-Stang. It could be just the thing for using a guitar synth in a relatively unobtrusive way, particularly for producing background accompaniment, while performing live!
