Zivix

Congratulations to Bob E. of Novi, Michigan, for winning a Fonesalesman FurniQi wireless charging table in last week's giveaway. Dream of being the next Eric Clapton? This week's prize could set you on your way.

We've got a Zivix Jamstik+ wireless fretboard, which pairs with an iPhone, iPad or Mac and bundled apps to give you interactive guitar lessons. The portable Jamstik+ stands 16 inches tall and weights 2.25 pounds. It has six metal strings and five frets but (yay!) needs no tuning.

The gadget uses infrared light sensing to track your finger placement and provide real-time feedback, and the apps give lessons on all aspects of guitar playing, starting with the basics and getting more advanced through Guitar Hero-like games. The product is MIDI-friendly, and works with lots of other apps, including GarageBand.

CNET's Rick Broida tried the Jamstik at CES last year and came away impressed (thankfully for CNET, he hasn't yet ditched us for his rock star dreams.) So what do you have to do to get your hands on a free Zivix JamStik+ worth $299.99? There are a few rules, so please read carefully.
