I actually like some Depeche Mode and a lot of the songs Jan Hammer did for Miami Vice, but I still think they're funny to reference.
I promise I never saw that newgrounds game before you linked to it. Keytars are something that come up fairly often with myself and the guys. Even godkorg there is trying to build a custom one out of a gibson explorer.
Yep, and Mat Guillory (check this guy's bio... some serious keyboarding from this guy www.myspace.com/mattguillory) actually emailed me about the design. I didnt believe it but I got him to confirm trough his website...
He suggested using carbon fiber as a material and I think that would be easyer than wood. (not to mention a hell of a lot lighter)
But yeah, I'm still looking around to get this made.
