Internal Combustion Guitar?

When you first take a look at Woody B's Internal Combustion Guitar you might start scratching your head -- I did. According to GLW (, it seems the concept behind the guitar is to recreate the effect of playing in front of a bank of Marshall amps and finding that "sweet spot" where your guitar resonates with the power of the amps and enables you to execute some blistering guitar playing - BUT - without the extreme volume and need for a bank of Marshalls.

Instead of forcing the resonate energy to the outside of your guitar, the Internal Combustion Guitar's proprietary driver system gently pumps it back inside. Then the coupling mechanism redistributes the controlled energy to your strings.

Your touch sends signal to a small amp (6 watts or less) or processor combo, and the small amp sends the conditioned signal back to the Internal Combustion Guitar. The Internal Combustion Guitar power driver reenergizes the now harmonically enriched and colored string tone.

It'll set you back about $2,450.

I certainly was scratching my head when talking my first glance .....

It sounds like crap on this amp.
I would like to hear it on a real amp.

WTF is it ???

shut up and play the damn thing so we can hear something

I still do not understand what kind of signal it is that comes back to the guitar and how this is picked up at the amplifier or processor unit. Is it the actual sound produced in the amp/processor? And not least: what does this system need at the amp/processor side to pick up and send back to guitar?
