The Wieden + Kennedy website have this piece featuring David Neevel's project: an Arduino-powered email-writing electric guitar that you can use instead of a regular keyboard.

WK recently allowed me some time to tackle a problem that plagues workers everywhere whether they are working in advertising or some other job that involves a lot of email typing. I’m talking about the problem of not being able to devote enough time practicing shredding the guitar. The solution of hooking a guitar up so that you could use it like a computer keyboard had been in my head for a few years and it was a real joy to get to follow through on it.
