Fender Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers

Who better to launch a new artist signature amplifier line that Slow Hands himself? The Fender Eric Clapton Signature Amplifiers ($1,400-$4,200) are built by hand to the exact specifications of Clapton — well known for his favorite black Strat — based on the '57 Twin, '57 Deluxe, and '57 Champ amps, and feature '50s-era tremolo, a switchable power attenuator, a finger-joined solid pine cabinet for a warm tone, and a lacquered tweed covering with vintage brownish gold drille cloth and leather handles. Six-string skills not required, but highly recommended. [Scouted by John]

  • Sony Reader Wi-Fi

    Despite the proliferation of iPads tablets, there's still a demand for regular ol' eReaders — and the new Sony Reader Wi-Fi ($150) is as good a choice as any. Billed as "the lightest touch screen 6-inch eReader ever," it weighs under six ounces, and features a six-inch E-Ink touch screen, compatibility with common file formats like EPUB, PDF and TXT, 2GB of storage capacity, a battery life of over one month, and, of course, built-in Wi-Fi for downloading new titles.

  • Wacom Inkling

    We've been waiting a long time for the "digital sketchpad" to become reality — and as cool as tablets are, they haven't really been able to nail it. But the Wacom Inkling ($200) looks like it has. It includes a small receiver that attaches to any sketchbook or normal piece of paper and an electronic sketch pen that work together to record your sketches stroke-by-stroke, which can then be transferred over USB and into Photoshop, Illustrator, Sketchbook Pro, or any number of traditional image formats.
