The guitar as an MP3 player

Miniature version comes with its own amp.

As guitar-mania continues to sweep the land, we're surprised that we haven't seen this sooner: a guitar-shaped MP3 player.

The "uRock" even comes with its own miniature amp, which we think would look great on the desk sitting next to a Les Paul USB drive . Aside from its novelty look, it's a legitimate MP3 and WMA player with 1GB of memory and six equalizer levels, according to Chip Chick.

At this size, of course, there's a limit to how much thump you'll get. But for serious volume, you can always hook it up to a toaster amp .
