Many musicians like to collect instruments. Certainly, guitarists collect guitars. Pat Metheny is a case in point. Over the years he has added a synth-guitar as well as the exotic 42 string Pikasso guitar to his recordings and live performances. Not satisfied with switching guitars for a different sound, Metheny even built a whole new instrument, the auto-mechanical Orchestrion. It’s an elaborate machine with drums, guitars, pianos, a bottle organ, and whatnot all controlled by Metheny as he plays his guitar. He still takes parts of the Orchestrion on the road to join his band on tour.
