The JamPod is our little answer to that big need,” said the company. “The JamPod just plugs into the top of any dock connector iPod, and lets you plug in your guitar, mix the level with the music from the iPod, and practice away as much as you like, through the iPod’s own earbuds.” The JamPod requires no batteries, features a top-mounted volume wheel, and works with any electric guitar, electric bass, or other instrument that sends a guitar-level output signal through a 1/4-inch instrument jack. It will begin shipping in February for $49.99.

If I had any musical talent whatsoever, I could see where I might end up considering this one of the greatest iPod accessories ever made! <grin>

this looks good, but what i would really like to see come out soon is this:

an iTrip-type thing but instead of using a speaker/mic thing, you use a guitar chord jack for recording. it would record at higher quality and clearity than if you were to play a guitar into an iTrip.

i would get one of those in a heartbeat.
