Ha, reminds me of when my wife and I used to go to a restaurant, when we sat down the first thing that I would do is bend the shafts of the low quality flatware to have a comfortable feel in my hand. It would upset her somewhat or maybe embarrassment, if somebody watched me do it.
Yes it is about convenience. This guitar has a strat-ish ( and I use that term loosely) type sound to it. The speaker is low quality but surprisingly clear. Let's not kid ourselves thinking this is a diamond in the rough. It is what it is, a novelty instrument that was sold at a consumers distributing type store. The fact that I have one that is in amazing condition for its age, is a wonder within itself. It is however a neat guitar to fiddle with while sitting in the couch.ahh...ok, so more about the convenience than any unique sound. Basically a guitar with a $30 amp built in. For some reason I thought it might have some sort of ethereal, Leslie -ish sound as the speaker gets intermingled with vibrations from the guitar.
