    Throw some of those Gibson G-Force tuners on it too. Everybody seemed to love those.

    Seriously, though, to each his own. But it's not a Strat I'd personally want to buy.

    Call it the I-Strat, and at least some folks would buy it.

    That sounds dumb. I like guitars just the way they are. I don't need all that fancy electronic crap. Just more components to fail.

    Totally man. It should play itself; you'd never make a mistake!
    While we're at it, why would such a thing really even need strings at all?

    Strats are professional instruments, not toys. Im sure Line 6 has an offering to suit your needs.

    Now this is what I am talking about, although I was partly joking, but partly real serious too!

    they could easily put that in the guitar and have a usb interface

    I don't think it's that crazy

    the guitar chord is so old fashioned and responsible for so many guitar mishaps.

    They need to do this. Sad news is that electric guitar oriented music is falling behind and needs something to keep it more relevant. This type of feature would be amazing to solo artists or artists who specialize in Youtube style colabs. A simple switch could bypass those electronics. Being able to use the strat as a midi controller would offer a TON of flexibility. It would also show a younger generation that the guitar is far more useful than a keyboard.

    I don't know about adding blue tooth, but they should definitely considering adding this:

    I'm not sure if a Strat really needs all that. All that kind of stuff can add complications and limitations. I believe Bluetooth, for instance, limits the sound a bit. If you want to connect an electric guitar to a PC, there are simple ways to do that - There are guitar cables with USB on one end so you can easily plug it into a PC, or you can use a regular guitar cable and plug it into a line-in (perhaps with an adapter) or into a specialized low-latency audio interface for a PC. And then you can record on a PC and add additional tracks with singing accompaniment, etc.

    If you want a mode like a player piano, you might as well just have a bunch of recordings of guitar tracks on an iPod or similar device with you.

    I like a modern Strat myself, but sometimes you can have too much..

    It's even mounted in the correct direction to allow for use while in a stand. Even better would be on the front behind the bridge so it can be used while playing.

    I would bet wireless guitar technology has never been more accurate or immediate than today.
