Seeking suggestions for a sonorous selection

This is kind of the definition of a problem of plenty, but I was recently gifted $1000 with which to buy a musical instrument for myself, and I have no idea what to buy. I already play a number of instruments, and between my girlfriend and myself (mostly her) we have a small selection of instruments already. I would love to hear any and all suggestions. [more inside]

What do I do once I learn guitar?

Last year I quit my job and went freelance/work-from-home. I'm also single & early 30's, so healthy and no big commitments. One of the first things I did was bought the electric guitar (2 actually, an 8-string & 6-string acoustic), because I've always wanted to learn and it's something I can work on during downtime. Now I'm finally getting the expected downtime, and a question popped into my brain - what am I gonna do with this? Help me understand where knowing guitar can take me. [more inside]

Guitar History Detective?

About 20 years ago while working at a guitar store, a guy sold us his stuff, and in the case was a piece of weirdness. A small black plastic box called the "Geraci Keetaar Converter" It has six keys, with corresponding felt tipped hammers below, and is mean to be mounted to the top, and over the neck of the guitar, and allow you to use the hammers to sound the strings instead of your fingers or a pick. Tried it once, and it was sort of a neat effect. The only other info is it says "Norwood Company, Morton Grove IL. Patent Pending" I have never been able to find any info on this thing, nor the company. Has anyone even HEARD of this particular piece of wonderful weirdness?
