WEIRDO Award - i.e. The weirdest guitar I ever saw!
More than Shakti/Wechter John McLaughlin's axe, more than Pat Metheny's Picasso Linda Manzer built masterpiece, more than Vishwa Mohan Bhatt's mohan-vina slide guitar...
The WEIRDO Award 2009 goes to Arul's "Combined Percussive Nylon/Steel Strings guitar" from India!
Stop all those silly, random bumping and slapping on our acoustic guitars... now you can precisely choose dumbek or tabla, while strumming sympathetic strings, sitar-like, again choosing nylon OR steel strings.
I'm impressed, fearsome, but sincerely, truly impressed, folks!
