Well, you can do it with any guitar really. Weave a rubber band or something (I used one of my daughter's hair ties) through the string right next to the nut to keep strings from ringing when you tap the fretboard but otherwise you can tap away to your hearts content after that. Check out some of the mind-blowing stuff Stanley Jordan does over on YouTube, especially his cover of Stairway To Heaven where he does this on two guitars at the same time. Incredibly is putting it mildly. Yeah, those Chapman Sticks and Warr Guitars are kinda pricey, aren't they? Poke tongue | ;-P Check out Trey Gunn with King Crimson doing eLeKtRiK, should also be on YouTube, the sound is amazing:

Naturally it starts with modified *Frippertronics. I bow at the Crimson alter...
