Eureka Baitar, half bass and half guitar
The US manufacturer Eureka Sound introduces the Baitar, a real electric guitar that features one or two bass strings.
The Baitar is available in two versions; the OBM1 with a single low E bass string and the OMB2 with bass strings for the low E and A, the other strings being standard for guitar.
