Is Guitar Dead?

Yes, I hate to say it but it needs reviving quickly! Old fashioned instruments suck!

No, even though a new version ain't been released since... Live 7? (and that only tunes itself which I could do fine already).

Don't really care, I lost interest a long time ago (around Van Halen's heyday).

The Cithara/Kithara dates back to the Greeks. Thanks for playing though.

Oh nooooooooo!!!!!

Considering this was meant as a light-hearted dig at the "Is Live Dead?" poll I thought this would be an escape from Live 9 talk. Anyway, we can't have L9 yet, I just found a new bug with 8 today. :/

I'm great at disappointment. :mrgreen:

not to be a douche but those are the same pics that pop up in every "guitars are crazy" thread in many forums.

I thought the Moog guitar was a great new twist on the guitar. little too expensive. :(

If you consider the floyd rose an advancement in guitar...

How about this:

It isn't going to give you any new techniques though.


How about all the new polyphonic whammy pedals?
