For the “don’t worry, the band’s gonna make it” guy on your Christmas list. Via Uncrate:
“Record whenever genius strikes with the Ovation iDea Guitar ($600). This iPod-like acoustic/electric guitar can both record and play MP3s, letting you save your jam sessions or rock along with any song. The iDea’s built in preamp has a pitch-stable speed adjustment allowing you to slow down MP3 tracks for easier learning. On-board USB lets you quickly transfer recordings and songs back and forth.”
Pretty neat. Click the pic for the product site.
