Hi Ruben,

That's the one I've been using ever since the 80's. But a few years
back I stopped using its MIDI pickup (since I got hold of an Akai EWI
9000s which is a way better MIDI instrument in case you are familiar
with sax or flute playing). But man what great guitar Casio made with
that model!!! I put DiMarzio Dual Sound pickups mine it and it totally
screams as a free floating whammy rocker. Right now I have the Casio's
neck on a Telecaster (which I have more use for in my recent
recordings) and will get a new neck for the Casio ASAP.

BTW, I'm very happy with an Ableton Push for playing percussive MIDI
parts. Its 64 rubber pads cover over 5 octaves and the feel is as good
as the classic MPC (Akai designed these pads for Ableton).
Unfortunately it needs a connected computer but even including that it
is a very small setup that can be used on the side while playing
guitar as well. I think the general idea of having a guitar send MIDI
suffers from really bad odds.
