Rick Nielsenуs Hamer Guitar Synth
"The geniuses at Hamer have created some truly amazing axes for Cheap Trick guitarist Rick Nielsen (including his famous five-neck monstrosity), but this may be the most unusual piece theyуve ever built. Itуs a fully functional guitar with a single humbucker and a Kahler trem, but itуs also a guitar synth. Rick used the onboard hex pickup to trigger synth sounds and the sax mouthpiece is a primitive breath controller. Hamer built it in 1985. "
