Roland AX-1 Keytar - 90's MIDI Controller

Rolands AX-1 Keytar is a pure MIDI controller keyboard, designed to be worn like a guitar with a shoulder strap.
Conceptually designed by David Sherriff and Andrew Leggo in the U.K., before Roland Europe in Italy took on the electronic engineering. Many famous artists have been seen using the AX-1, including Jean-Michel Jarre, Imogen Heap & Peter Gabriel. It features a 45 note, velocity sensitive keyboard, a pitch bend ribbon for extra control, a touch like expression bar on the neck, and a sustain switch on the back for more possibilities.  Being a MIDI only device, it doesn't produce any of it's own sounds, so needs to be connected to software or a sound module to be fully utilised. (
