The Fiber Optic Guitar

A Fiber Optic Guitar (Patent Pending) provides an innovation in amplified musical instrument design in which the musical notes and characteristic instrument sounds normally sensed by electromechanical devices such as magnetic pickups and acoustic transducers are now generated by the modulation of light within optical fibers (strings) and are optically transmitted without losses to distant amplifying devices. Problems associated with conventional electric guitars, such as induced noise and hum pickup, limited frequency response, short cable feeds and electric shock vulnerability, are virtually eliminated.
