Is This The Holy Grail Of Guitars?

I read an article earlier today talking about a very rare Martin OM-45 guitar that is coming up for auction at Guernsey’s Auctions.

I took a look at the auction page and I have to say that there are some interesting guitars there including many old Gibsons, Martins, and more.

Acoustic Stream – So Cool! Do Everything With Your Guitar With No Wires

This is probably the coolest guitar/recording product I have seen in a long time. It can record, tune, wireless connect to your amp as well as detect humidity of the environment your guitar is in. And it is all tied to your smartphone!

They currently are working on getting funding to manufacture and distribute the device – at the time of the writing, it was at close to half of their goal. Take a look at the demo video they have on Kickstarter.

What I think is quite innovative is the way that it is designed to react based on tapping your guitar or other instrument. Can’t wait to try it out! Go to their Kickstarter project to help out!
