The 'smallest precision guitar,' at a big price

At 26.5 inches, it still has 20 frets--for $800.

The craze over guitars may be getting bigger by the day , but at least one gadget maker is looking to shrink them--to the point of the "smallest precision electric guitar" available.

How small? It measures just 26.5 inches long yet still includes 20 frets, according to its product description. (But we'll spare you the marketing-speak about reproducing the "cellular structure of wood" and such.)

Of course, there's always the question of why someone would want one of these, not to mention spend $800 for it. Especially when there are " Pac-Man Guitars " to be had.
