Anyone who is a fan of 1960s-era guitar idol mythology knows that crazy custom circuitry and effects pedals are nothing new. But the OpenStomp Coyote 1, the "world's first open-source guitar pedal" updates the trend for today's slightly more nerdy shredders, who can recreate the crazy circuit bending of yore in a custom software package that visually edits effects patches. On top of that, all aspects of the hardware-including the added LCD screen, 80MHz Propeller processor, microUSB and RJ11 interfaces-are documented, too, so feel free to open 'er up. It's shipping now for $350. [OpenStomp]
