<div><b>THE BODY</b></div><div><br></div><div>Constructed from Bosnian maple and Italian red spruce (the same type of wood used in Stradivari violins), the body amplifies sound with pristine quality.</div>
<div><b>THE SOUND</b></div><div><br></div><div>The sensors respond to how a guitar player moves, can produce any type of sound or effect (modulation, looping, distortion) and even control stage elements like lighting. “The only limitation,” says Benincaso, “is the creativity of the musician.”</div>
<div><b>THE STRINGS</b></div><div><br></div><div>Above all, Benincaso wanted Sensus to feel like a “real instrument.” As with any “real” guitar, it produces sound using standard guitar-string vibrations. —A.S.</div>
<div><b>THE TECH</b></div><div><br></div><div>“Everything on the market today is basically a remote control attached to a guitar,” says Benincaso. “But [Sensus] is completely standalone.” It receives and processes data through motion and pressure sensors that use the same touch technology found on smartphones and drum machines.</div>
