INVENTION…
Created the first guitar synthesizer in the early 70’s but forgot to patent the Instrument!!!. This deception decided him to use his Guitar as in the early 60’s without any synthesizer or gadget and the result is just fantastic.

In 1992 he has been the generator of the Carlsbro GLX 120 turned into the GLX 150 JP Wayne Model in 1997. This Model features 5 output channels, which link to another GLX 150 gives 10 outputs out of which 6 being used for the Guitar offering one output per String, the 4 others being used in mono or stereo polyphonic sound. But this Model has been used only once for a show, since he considered that it was not necessary to have one channel per String for his performances.
