    We have several prototypes. The nature of guitar transducers calls for a modified MVW waveguide. This results in excellent projection but a bit narrow dispersion and stage presence. We have been working with some guitarists to get the stage mojo and footprint correct. It is a different animal than the bass instrument loudspeakers Mike is selling currently. I predict one or more will be available later this year.

    The guitarist can't hear themselves because the amp is set so that the rest of the band and audience can hear them.

    Or that's the idea.
    In reality, the amp is aiming at the guitarists back and anybody off axis can't hear.

    So they turn up, which causes everyone else to turn up, which causes the guitarist to turn up again.

    If electric guitar wasn't so popular, lots of live sound problems would go away.
    I think its the main reason for in ears.

    i know this doesn't address the mmv thing, but maybe you have one cabinet at the same height, and aiming directly at, the side of the players head.
    And an extension cabinet somewhere else. Or, each cab has 2 speakers at 90 degrees.

    These are exactly the issues we are trying to solve.

    The internal structure of the waveguide has been changed as well as ways of tapping the output flares for more stage presence. Nothing photo worthy at this time. I expect to see more soon since Mike is now involved.
