Alesis XGuitar has it all on board

Alesis unveiled the new XGuitar at Nashville - and there was quite a buzz surrounding this one. Alesis bill the XGuitar as "The world's only professional guitar with Alesis DSP technology built in." The XGuitar is a full-scale electric guitar that features 80 editable guitar presets in one package, including headphone and line outputs. All of the presets can be user-configured using the 9 effect modules and 8 different signal routing possibilities. Features include 28-bit effects- Delays, amp, and cabinet models, chorus, transposition EQ, Noise reduction, flanger, reverb rotary speaker, a built-in digital tuner, one humbucker and two stacked single-coil pickups, plus a five-position pickup selector switch, master volume and two tone controls. The XGuitar can run up to 30 hours of operation on 4 AA alkaline batteries. The head honcho @ Alesis says "The XGuitar by Alesis is ideal for live, practice and recording situations. By plugging headphones into the XGuitar, together with an expression pedal (a feature found in no other guitar), musicians can create the ideal rehearsal climate that is private and silent to the outside world." RRP $349
