AW: Roland VG8

Well said, mark! I never really understood what guitarists where trying to
do or say or be with their guitar synths, but perhaps that's because I'm
originally a keyboard player (well, I really can't play guitar at all,
although I own two electrics and an acoustic and even a Yamaha guitalele
(which is a funny thing), and even more bass guitars), but yeah, the idea
might have been a "I want a keyboard sound, but without losing the
expressiveness of the guitar playing", just as Kevin said...but the way to
great synth tones are synths, and the best way to control them isn't a
guitar equipped with some strange interface.
