Or, go with any travel guitar, most of them have headphone jacks etc.

Can you imagine the looks you'd get from people playing that thing in public?!

I'm totally confused...you pick the headstock? It needs some sort of body, surely?

You don't pick at all, it's for fingering exercises.

Right. Which means that one does not get to exercise picking and strumming etc. ie this product does a half job imo.

According to the shredneck site you can practice picking with it too. You'd pick over the fretboard, they show a pic of it on the site.

doesn't seem very realistic to pick it. With regards to pick depth and pick position.

Re: Wondering if there is anything out ther like this

i have always thought it was stupid to pay that much for a pos like that... just go out and buy a cheapo fender strat remake take off the neck, reposition the bridge onto the neck if you really want strings otherwise just play on the neck or even draw strings on. god y waste ur money on that wen u can have a cheapo strat for like half that, or even go on ****.
not **** e - bay

Re: Wondering if there is anything out ther like this

for $45 it seems like something cool to checkout, also seems like it would really help with legato playing and tapping, as well as learning scales..

Yeah, but imagine holding this in playing position and think about what it would look like.

Using it to memorize scales and notes on the fretboard, plus fingerings and chord shapes, would be what would make this worth-while IMO.
