Apple and Fender Release New iOS-Connected Guitar Through Online Apple Store

Apple has long catered to creative types with their Mac and iOS devices, and what they offer from Apple Retail Stores and their own online store – but now Apple has partnered with Fender to offer a new iOS-compatible guitar, perfect for using with GarageBand on the Mac or an iOS device.

The product description reads as follows (via 9to5Mac):

The Squier by Fender USB Stratocaster electric guitar gives you a huge range of tones and all the features you expect from Fender—plus the convenience of direct connection to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac.

  • Pickup select switch
  • Pickup volume control
  • Pickup tone control
  • Headphone volume control
  • 1/4-inch passive guitar output
  • 1/8-inch (3.5mm) stereo headphone jack
  • Type Mini-B USB connector offering bi-directional audio streaming

The guitar connects to a Mac or iOS device over USB, and includes a 30-pin connector for hooking to iOS devices, as well as a traditional Mini-USB for connecting to a Mac. There’s no Lightning cable included, though, so you’ll need to grab a Lightning to 30-pin adapter to use it with the newest iPads, or the iPhone 5.

The new Squier by Fender® USB Stratocaster Guitar is an Apple Online Store exclusive, and is available now for $199.95. I’ll be picking up one of these bad boys in the near future. How about you?
