How about 2 guitars, one amp?

Jury-rig a cellphone headset to receive one guitar's output, call another cellphone with it, put that cellphone's speaker against a second guitar and plug the second guitar into an amp. Voila, Incredible Machine status.

pickups did cross my mind
one idea ive had is making a computer program that you play your guitar into a mic or the computer and the program has effects and such
i know its been done a lot before

Make an amp that makes the world revolve faster when played through. That seems complicated enough..

John Petrucci already did it.

maybe an amp with some funky control system like no controls at all?
all the different tones comes from guitar?

Buy a Variax, and mod the circuit for valve preamp or something? I dunno how VOX make their cooltron pedals work on batteries, but you could always run it on the mains for a fair. Just means another cable. And then display the valves glowing on the guitar, not even sure if that's possible. Just an idea

How about having a usb compatible guitar which when plugged in automaticly records and tabs out the song as you play it.
That would be so helpful and totally awesome. It would really impress people who are into musical instruments at your fair to. You might even make some money of it if it hasnt been done before which i doubt it has.

^ I was just gonna suggest that

how about a way to use your computer as a giant multi effects station but it still plays through the amp so you would series it like a normal pedal or something

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

i like the variax idea

Actually, it's pretty easy. Or, at least the concept is easy. Take a look at how MIDI pickups work. Adapt that and give it a nice user interface.

Hi,
I have been pickin' up some Arabic radio signal things. Every time I turn up my Amp, this crazy Imam starts messing up my chords.
