File this one under “brilliant”.  Why?  A good song isn’t always planned– it happens on the fly, often when you’re least expecting it.  What could have started as a bad chord, a missed string or a two-handed mistake could lead to the next Billboard hit.  To ensure you never miss a beat, the Ovation iDea Guitar has a built-in recorder that captures those spontaneous moments of song writing. The guitar’s pickup grabs the sound of the strings, while a built in microphone records the vocals. The songs are automatically saved as MP3s and be transferred directly to a PC for editing and sharing. Whether you’re an up-and-comer or already big time, this is one brilliant song-writing companion.  Just don’t forget to hit that little record button…  [ovation]
