Looking at this I want one. Has anyone got one and is it worth the cash?

Well, i tried one out today with a modified Martin D-18 (old model, early 2000's, pickup and EQ built in by me, not my guitar though), while i certainly had fun with it...
It just felt like another gimmick.
If you're a solo guitar player who does an act similar to K.T. Tunstall, and playing a Mic'ed guitar, then this thing could be another step in eliminating the need for a band, and even in a band situation i can see some usefull applications, but it's nothing that you can't achieve with old fashioned effects units for about the same price (remember that this thing requires a pickup to work, at which point regular effects will work just as well).
