Actually I'm a G10 owner and it always looked like a cross between a 
steinberger and a dustbuster to me.  I believe the Beetle Quantar also had 
sonar pickups.

Here's a good description of midi guitars old and new:


Not to beat this to death or anything, I find midi guitar fascinating and 
well-disposed to loop music.  Different strokes, though.  It would be 
unfortunate, in my mind, to express an opinion on this matter at the 
of another's opinion.  I appreciate Kim's contributions to this list as 
as others, and it would be a downer to see bad vibes flung around.  Peace?
