Q. On one (two?) of the songs performed during the original Lightsaber performance, Bodhi played a blue guitar which sounded very different than a traditional electric guitar. I was wondering what kind of guitar it was?

A. Bodhi's blue guitar at the Lightsaber performance was a guitar synthesizer. He was experimenting with using the guitar to trigger synth sounds and textures at the time, and he employed it on a couple of the tunes on that album. He played around with the device for a few months, but it didn't get much use in our music after that.

Thanks to John for inquiring, and Steve for the informative answer!

Or perhaps, he did."
