I agree 100%. Even with electric guitar, at least the sound source is a
vibrating string beneath the fingers. The user interface remains seamless -
for instant patch changes, just pick/fret differently. In response to an
aggravating question about extensive on-board electronics on a guitar, Rick
Turner held up both hands and said, "You have ten tone controls right here.
Use them!"
