The Stick is an amplified stringed instrument resembling a larger version of a fretboard developed by Emmett Chapman. The "Chapman Stick" is used to achieve higher and lower octaves for both bass and electric guitar without being weighted down by a body.
A typical Stick has even numbers of strings (8, 10, or 12). It is played by using both hands to perform a tapping method directly to the fretboard—as opposed to strumming the strings at the base of the guitar.
