This is basically a guitar and a keyboard combined. How is this not higher? - Rorywilbren

Why are four versions of the guitar in the top 25 and the theremin is 83?!

"I'm picking up good vibrations"

Come on. What's cooler than a theramin?!
The theramin is really obscure and sounds like an alien spaceship!
Played with two antennas, one for pitch and one for volume, by raising your hands up and down the stems.
Look one up on YouTube, it's really entertaining to watch/listen to! :D
