Although my first guess was that this instrument was built in the mid 80’s when guitars like the SynthAxe were vying for competition in the new digital age and EMU’s Emulator II was the synth of choice among such people as Paul “n-n-n-n-nineteen” Hardcastle! But I’m wrong, this guitar by Auerswald was built, according the date on the photo (what a giveaway!) in 1997… ok. The site is crap quite frankly with hideous repeating backgrounds that put me in an epileptic fit just trying to look at the gallery but there are some pretty crazy guitars there if you start digging. There is absolutely no information on each guitar however but an overall summary of his practices in the story section, which has been vomitted onto the page in comic sans just to be extra annoying.
