Is it worth the nearly six grand asking price?
Overall, I found the Moog Guitar to be an inspirational instrument. It opened up exciting new worlds of playing technique for me like no guitar I’ve ever played. Especially when I used external effects, like distortion, delay, and modulation, I found myself getting lost in the guitar and playing and improvising for long stretches without even realizing that time had passed. It was kind of like discovering a whole new side to my guitar skills.
That said, the Moog Guitar is quite expensive and at this point in its development is a luxury item that will be affordable only to some. I hope that in the not-too-distant future, Moog will release a lower-priced line, bringing the Moog Guitar’s exciting combination of sustain, mute, and filter effects to a wider range of potential buyers. I can already tell that I’m going to miss having this guitar around when I have to return it after this review is over. There’s simply nothing else out there like it.
In other words – if you got the 6K to drop, there’s nothing else like it.
Otherwise, you may have to wait for the Behringer version like the rest of us.
