Hi Y'all,

Here's a list of the features I always put on my "must have" list when acquiring a new TouchStyle Guitar, not that that's always what I end up with:

1) A single on/off switch per pickup. Really does it for me on the "three pickups per side" models.

2) Dual outputs.

3) Adjustable nut. Available since the dark ages on Guitars and Basses, TouchStyle Guitars available only on the Chapman Stick(r), really required for total adjustability, great job on Emmett Chapman's part in making this a standard Stick feature, why has nobody else caught on ??

4) Active pickups. I've no real peeves with passive pickups tho.

5) Tunings: I prefer "BassBottom", 4th's that is. I'm opt'ing for uncrossed this time around on my new Megatar, that'll be a first for me, we'll see how that progresses.

6) Neck-thru. Yes, truly a "must have" !!!

7) MIDI / Piezo's when i'm in the mood.

I make sure affordability is never an issue [smile]

There's probably more...........

Glenn:

I've often watched "uncrossed" players do some fascinating things on their instruments and admired the results. I've seen some brilliant bass-side work that simply can't be replicated when using the crossed approach. I'm very interested in this new challenge you are setting for yourself. Please keep us intricately informed of the pains and joys you experience in this process.

Don
