I think that goes to eleventeen ;-)

A friend of mine had a guitar with built in effects back in the 80's. Eventually the effects stopped working and that made the whole guitar quit working. He asked me to fix it, but I didn't have a schematic to follow and not much internet info to follow back then. Had to disconnect all the electronics and wire it up like a regular guitar.

looks like it has a regular guitar jack and a second output for what looks like a synth/drum machine in old school analog form.. 

if you save the pic and turn it upside down it has switches for 16',8', 5 3/8', 4', 2 2/3' like pipe organ stops on an old hammond organ each with ther own volum pot so you can adjust the mix .

looks really thick too, to fit all the electronics in it..

The  description  said  something about  an  organ,  so yeah there's that  going  on...

I think the second jack might be an XLR jack used simply for phantom power. I've seen that before on guitars with built-in effects.

Hang it on the wall for a conversation piece.

Possibly the poster-gitty for Wretched Excess.

LOL, for sure!

I appreciate guitars with the innovation and craftsmanship that goes into them. This is a nice looking piece, but all the knobs, switches and wording totally distract your attention away from the rest of it!  For example, Taffy Evan's latest work, that's eye candy! Just like a good work of art your eyes move from area to area taking in the overall effect. This thing! Your eyes are glued to the electronic part of it and no where else. If you do look else where you are drawn back to the bling. I personally wouldn't enjoy this guitar to play. Number 1, if I wanted that much in voices, I'd use my keyboard(it has several guitar voices). Number 2, way too much to break and go wrong with a hefty repair bill! My keyboard! Gut it out salvage parts and buy another, find them cheap for sale all over! Just my 2cents.
