The Moog guitar looks like a standard electric guitar.
But Fareed Haque knows from unpleasant experience that its innards are anything but standard.
“There’s an incredible amount of technology inside that instrument,” Haque said in a phone interview last week. “I was flying with the instrument, and ... I feel that airline security ... looked at my name – Fareed Haque – and looked at the guitar.” He paused here, letting the implication settle. “I don’t know they took it apart, but I know that when I got it, it wasn’t all put back together. Which presented great difficulties for our performance that evening. It looked okay, and I sat down to play it, and all the guts just kind of fell out on stage.”
He related this story with good humor, in part because it’s understandable that transportation-security officials would be suspicious of the outwardly benign guitar with the unusual stuff inside.
Haque will be demonstrating that inner weirdness of the Moog guitar on November 27 at RIBCO, when he performs with his new trio MathGames, which also features drummer Greg Fundis and bassist Alex Austin.
