Fender Tremorcaster is a very big guitar. In fact it's so big that it
has to lie on the ground horizontally and requires two teams of
people to play it.
Its strings take the form of strong metal wires on which the first
team of players walk along, pressing their feet down to force the
into making contact with the frets. Chords are played by a
choreographed repositioning of the various player's feet.
The second team operate the plectrums, which consist of heavy
shovel-like instruments swung in a co-ordinated action like that of
ringers, to strike the strings and release the notes or chords.
More agile athletic players can run up and down the strings rapidly
to create riffs and solos.
Fender Tremorcaster also comes in acoustic form and is
accompanied by an appropriate amplification system - Marshall
Mammoths. Ear defenders are strongly recommended for all those
participants playing the Tremorcaster.

||Since the frequency of a string is inversely proportional to its length and the square root of its mass per unit length and proportional to its tension, unless it has a lot of tension (which would mean your fretters had better not just be on foot, but, say, mounted on elephants), the aptly named Tremorcaster is gonna be so low-pitched itd be appreciated only by, say, blue whales.
||Which is not uncool, especially if you could not only get whales to listen to it, but to play it.
||Weren't these popular during the big band era?
