New Strat Plugs Straight Into Your iPhone

Squier introduces a Stratocaster with USB and iOS connectivity      12/11/12

Squier tells us that their new Strat Guitar with USB & iOS Connectivity 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.

A spokesperson told us, "The Squier by Fender Stratocaster guitar offers bi-directional audio streaming and includes a high-quality headphone amp so that you can monitor the processed guitar signal right from the guitar itself. Thanks to the guitar's own audio interface, you can record audio straight to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac--no additional hardware needed. And the analog output means you're also free to use this as a standard guitar."
You can see the guitar in action in the YouTube clip as This Century performs "Loud."
