Casio PG-380
1987- Early 1990sAlder, Maple, Ebony
Before Casio came into play, Roland had no real competiton in the Midi guitar market. A total of five models were made by the japanese brand, all at the famous Fuji-Gen factory were Fender and Ibanez models were also produced.
The Casio PG-380 established Casio’s superiority over Roland. Like all the other Casio models, the PG-380 is a superstrat stuffed with loads of electronics; so many in fact the designers had to give up the contoured ‘beer gut’ typical to the stratocaster body. Hear some bits

Misa Digital Kitara
2010-Present
And now for something completely new and different, here is a digital guitar that is basically the evolution of our beloved 80s synth guitars. The guitar hides a LINUX OS in its shell. Just like a Guitar Hero instrument, you press buttons instead of strings, but unlike the video game, It has 24 frets with 6 buttons on each, and a very cool strumming pad.
It has both MIDI and standard output, and it seems possible to pull few pink-floydish sounds out of it. +1 for the design effort. Hear it laser

Chris Larkin Robin ASAP solid steel with Midi. The mini pickup captures only the E and A strings.
