Re: Daevid Allen/glissando guitar

The Gizmotron could produce a similar effect as the sustainer-type devices, but I believe you could affect each string independently and on the fly. There was an on/off button for each string which activated a rotating rubber disk for that string, producing a bowing effect. The Sustainer doesn't offer that level of control.

on a related note, wild fun can be had with a bottleneck, a dl4
and a fernandez sustainer guitar, which essentially is a guitar
with a built-in ebow for all 6 strings. accomplishes what the
gizmo was going for, with out the messy huge box over the bridge...
