The DiGuitar is the combination of analog playability with the methods of electronic music. It replaces strings, pickups and frets with digital inputs and models a MIDI-Signal adaptable to sound like any given guitar and amp setup. A touchsensitive neck analyses finger positions,
liquid micro-channels bulge the surface to create variable fret positioning while piezo-electric actuators emulate frequencies of vibration corresponding to the played note. The brain recognizes these frequencies at the fingertips as the true sensation of physical strings.
