Re: The Big(ish) Idea

David Torn has a guitar made by Koll Guitars with a metal plate that's
wired to control voltage-controlled gear. I imagine it could be used
for that kind of thing.

But, I think I remember who you're thinking of. I just can't find the
e-mail thread. If I remember correctly, it was a British guitarist who
had a guy do all sorts of crazy wiring to various guitars, including
one with a similar touch plate idea to what I described above with
DT's Koll guitar.
