There's an iDea!

iDea acoustic/electric guitar

Almost every songwriter gets ideas when there's no capture device handy, and then has to hope to remember them while powering up—or hunting down—a recoder. Ovation's new iDea acoustic/electric guitar eliminates the problem by builing an MP3 recorder and player right into the instrument, which, in addition to capturing your inspiration with a built-in mic, can also play back "jam tracks" through its headphones out and transfer files to a compuer via USB. The mid-depth guitar also features a rosewood fingerboard, spruce top, and an Eastern mohagony neck, and a preamp for live performance. Ovationidea.com
