Hello,

Some years back Jeri Ellsworth constructed an electric guitar with the
neck attached to a C-64:

(I noticed her in that dress more than the guitar.). Sincerely,

I remember a Canadian TV show called The Red Green Show. Red's nephew Harold played an instrument that looked like it had a VIC-20 or C64 attached.

Here's a good production still of the prop:
https://www.therpf.com/forums/threads/red-green-show-harolds-instrument.306234/

So the panel's from an Ampex VR-1200 quad VTR:
https://www.cameratim.com/electronics/ampex-quad/vr1200-restoration

And the keyboard's from a TEC terminal -- that page doesn't have the
exact one, but it matches the 1401/2401 keyboard in the manual on
Bitsavers.

Oh well, on TV and moving fast, I couldn't tell. That was a great series. It had over 300 episodes in 15 seasons!

He sure did. I think it was actually supposed to be some sort of fancy
computerized thing that he "produced" the show with. It disappeared in
later years. They are currently showing one of the seasons on the local
PBS network where he uses it. It sure looks like a VIC-20 to me.

There is one episode where he is tapping on the keys showing the different
visual affects he can create with it.

I remember seeing a few episodes of that on a cable channel. I thought it was a
pretty funny show! I didn't know it was based in Canada. :)
