While filming a segment for NBC's "Chime In" campaign (where various musicians and actors "re-envision" the three-note NBC tune), Flaming Lips vocalist-guitarist Wayne Coyne brought with him what he dubbed the "Guitar Hero guitar," an Epiphone double-neck with the lower, six-string neck replaced by a five-button variant and wired to an oscillator. "[It's] because a lot of kids out there think this is actually the way you play guitar," he told Entertainment Weekly. Head over to EW's site to see a video demonstration of the hybrid (start at the 1:55 mark).
