Uses for cheap guitars

I'll start:
I won a 'Maestro' Gibson-ish acoustic at a company Xmas party. I restrung it in 'Nashville' tuning (tuning the lowest 4 strings up an octave, like using the octave strings from a 12 string set). It has a nice brightness to it when strummed, I think maybe from that high G being in there.

I picked up an Axiom 25 over the weekend, the keys and pads seem to be pretty good quality. I guess I have some reading to do, I didn't think I'd still need to know about '2's complement' math after getting my Comp Sci degree (even working as a programmer). I will leave most of my Sam Ash rant for a...

I use the Gorillapod for my gig / field recording with the H4's camera mount, works pretty well too. I have the Roland mic stand adapter too, but haven't used it yet.

Little keyboard/controllers?

Anyone have one of these, like the M Audios, for example http://www.m-audio.com/products/en_us/Axiom25-main.html I've even started seeing stuff like this at B*st Buy. I am no keyboardist, but looking to ditch my Yamaha DX27 and eventually my Korg M1 for the most part for software based synths (just ...

I am probably going to be the only one to answer with "O'Hagan Nightwatch". It's vaguely Les Paul-ish, with a neck-thru body, 2 humbuckers, a fairly small radius fretboard (maybe 9"), two volume , one tone control. Brass nut/Schaller stop tailpiece. I modified it in 1985 or so with on/off/on switche...

What about putting a float in it with the receiver/transducer in the float?

I have 'RockBox' loaded on my mp3 player (an open-source alternate OS), it has a 'karoake' setting which eliminates the center-panned sounds, a lot of weird stuff pops out using this technique (I think home theatre/surround sound gear will do this to some extent as well).

I picked up a DigiTech RP90 today, just under $100 from my local guitar shop. It's fun, I have the RP50 (soon for sale) but this has the pedal thingy. I can do the whammy pitch-shift stuff like the kids do nowadays. Thanks everyone for the suggestions!

Good ideas here, I never heard about the Holy Stain (I somehow think Dio should sing a song called "Holy Stain"). I am not too familiar with the Melodica, other than that one Hooters song from 1987 or so. I am also looking at some mini-keyboard midi controllers in GC's flyer. Hmm....

If you had $100 to get yourself a Xmas gift...

(okay, it's really for me , and not you , but you get the idea). I have a $100 bill from Xmas burning a hole in my wallet, throw me some ideas for a musical instrument / toy / noisemaker that I can buy myself for hours of fun. I want to limit this to something a) tangible (i.e. not just software, or...

I was expecting a Rutles-related thread... I love that CD... All You Need is Cash... A brilliant sendup of the Beatles, I think... The end of "Piggy In The Middle" slays me still to this day. ("This little piggy went 'whooooo'... all the way home". Brilliant.) And the backwards part - 'this little ...
