MIDI guitars have their own important place in a guitarist's arsenal, linking you as they do to a world of synthesis and programming minus the keyboards.
For the jazzer who wants a Rhodes sound on their rhythm parts to the soundscaper who wants to mix in orchestral tones with their solos, there's a lot to find once you've come to understand the MIDI link. Blend your dry guitar signal with the effects and tone-altered MIDI tone to create backings to your chords and licks, and become a one-man backing machine within your band.
With a Midi Pickup ready to go you have access to all the sounds you want and in some cases push buttons are provided to drop your MIDI signal in and out and switch between tones, there's huge scope to change so very much about your sounds. If you haven't considered using a MIDI guitar up until this point it is well worth your consideration.
