Wireless MIDI Controller for Acoustic Guitar

If you have been waiting for a MIDI controller for your acoustic guitar then you are in for a treat! ACPAD knocked it out of the park with their Bluetooth capable MIDI controller. It will transform your everyday average guitar playing into a one man show that can compete with any garage band (it does help if you already know how to play the guitar). The controller allows you to play the sounds of literally hundreds of instruments, that’s why I would consider this to be the most useful as well as the coolest accessory for acoustic guitars, just slap it on, download the software and you’re ready to go!
