Telecaster Inside? Concept Intel/Fender Tablet Guitar!

If your like me and were a little bamboozled by internet on your fridge, what would you say to internet on your guitar? That's right, Intel and Fender have struck up a partnership and have created a one of a kind Intel/Fender Telecaster Concept Guitar.

The Fender Europe website says the "internet-enabled super guitar enables any musician to scour the web for inspiration, send a quick email in-between songs on stage, practice their guitar solo grimaces via a built in webcam or even check their royalties online!"

The Tele contains a Hewlett Packard TC1100 tablet laptop with 1.25ghz RAM and an Echo Indigo I/O soundcard. Pickups are routed straight into the TC1100 for direct recording.

Apart from letting you draw a picture in MS Paint or prepare your tax return in MYOB, Fender lists a few more relevant uses for the net guitar such as

• Plug in headphones and listen to your tunes through the built in amp
• Record demo songs and email them to friends
• Go online to find the chords to that song someone just requested
• Stay in touch through email or Instant Messenger – on stage or on the tour bus
• Conduct webcam interviews with friends or fans
• Download your favourite tunes and just listen - or play along
