Fretted or Fretless with the Flick of a Switch

Recently added to our Guitar directory, the "Mikey Guitar" is capable of switching between fretted and fretless modes with the flick of a switch.

How does it work? According to the website, "the principle behind the mechanism is a rotating fret. It uses a rounded facet in fretted mode and a flat facet in fretless mode."

It goes onto say, "the Mikey Guitar is a revolutionary invention that combines the abilities of fretted and fretless instruments, thus keeping the advantages of each type. This raises and expands the opportunities of the musician, allowing the musician to instantly switch between various techniques while performing."

Available as a six string or bass. If you are the Toronto Ontario area you can test drive the bass model at the Twelfth Fret Guitarist Pro Shop.
