Remember Misa Digital’s stringless guitar? The company has officially launched the guitar and calls it Kitara. The Kitara features a 8-inch multi-functional touchscreen, MIDI controls and an on-board polyphonic synthesizer with effects, allowing guitarists to fully express their musical vision. Instead of guitar strings, Kitara guitarists control sound through their fingertips, using the touchscreen and fret board to play, enhance and alter sounds in real-time.
The Linux-based Kitara offers over 100 digital sounds, six pre-loaded effects, 24 frets and 144 notes. It has 1.25-inch audio out, MIDI out and 3.5mm headphone out. The Kitara digital guitar is available for pre-order for $849. There is the Kitara Limited Edition with a precision-etched body of solid aluminum, which is priced at $2899.
