Former Guitars

The Former Guitars are a family of modified electric guitars. Some are made from existing guitars, some are made from scratch.

The former guitars have two strings that are attached to a pivoting head, controlled by a whammy bar. When the whammy bar is activated, the tension of one string raises , while the tension of the other drops.The Former Guitars have a movable bridge that acts as a fret (much like a sitar). The sound is picked up by elements at both sides of the strings.
