Submission + - Linux guitar - get your groove on

Dolores Parker writes: Capturing the imagination of music geeks and guitar geeks, the Linux guitar project is an "open source" electric guitar — designed from the ground up by community consensus and tricked out with Linux technology. This guitar has what every musician would dream about: it self records, never needs tuning, and has righteous audio effects. Imagine playing a wailing riff, then yanking out the flash drive and having your groove nicely recorded. The project is actively soliciting ideas to make a most excellent guitar.

Mediocrity finds safety in standardization. -- Frederick Crane
