Now that the Megatar is reborn with Patrick's new design, I wonder if anyone is interesting in creating a registry of the existing Megatars in the world? Or maybe it already exists?

Also, are spares still available for the older models? Like scratchplates and so on? I've often thought of trying a 4-Bart array for example [smile] (though money has never permitted this).

...if tappistry is looking at all species of tapping instruments, could it create a registry of all the tapping instruments that exist (except chapman stick who have their own)? megatar, warr guitar, koyabi, santucci, krappy, bear guitars, and any other ones...is this too ambitious? maybe if there was a place where people could go and just list their instrument....this list would kind of grow on its own....i don't know, just rambling....

Hmmm. Interesting idea. I'm not sure how difficult it would be to gain access to all those who have bought a tapping instrument. I think that most of the time, they buy the instrument and then slip away into obscurity. The key in putting together a registry like this would be to have access to the "luthier." This would be the person who should have a list of all the owners of a particular instrument. He could contact those owners and let them know about such a registry. So, here on Tappistry, we do have access to the luthier of the Megatar instrument, so such a Megatar Registry might be possible. I'm not so sure about access to the other luthiers, however. I know personally that Mark Warr (Warr Guitars) is quite a solitary guy and probably wouldn' t be interested in communicating with owners. And again, I'm not sure about other luthiers such as Siggi Abramzik, Markus Reuter, Kevin Siebold, and the rest.
