With the Moog name on board, you might guess that the Moog Guitar ($6,500) is some sort of guitar/synth hybrid. And you'd be right. Designed by Moog inventor Paul Vo, this gorgeous axe uses magnetic pickups to change the strings' motion and enhance the sound. In addition to the standard 1/4" output, it also features a five-pin input for the included foot pedal, a piezoelectric pickup in the bridge, a Vo Power knob to control the intensity of sustain and mute, a filter toggle switch, and more.
