sonar axe

With its Hal-like red eye and green-lit aluminum rods, the Sonar Axe doesn't look like any guitar we've ever seen — and we suspect it doesn't sound like one either. About the only thing it has in common with a guitar is that you can play notes by moving your fingers up and down the "neck" — however, that part of the instrument is actually the space between those two rods, where you play, theremin-like, by moving your fingers in the air. At $425 with a lifetime warranty, it may be just the thing to add a groovy space-age sound to your band.
