Jordan Rudess Unveils ‘The Wizard’s Axe’, Electric Guitar and MIDI Keyboard in One Instrument

For some, being able to play multiple instruments just isn’t enough – they want to be able to play all of them at the same time. Dream Theater keyboard maestro Jordan Rudess is one such greedy groover, who recently revealed he’s creating a Heath Robinson hybrid that features both a 49-note MIDI controller and a electric guitar.

Designed in conjunction with Druzkowski Guitars, it may not be the most elegant solution, but it does allow Rudess to realize his dream of being able to play guitar and keyboard pretty much simultaneously. It’s very much a prototype at the moment, with bits seemingly held together with gaffer tape, but as Rudess reveals in the video above, it’s already playable.
