Fender Squier Stratocaster USB guitar available exclusively at Apple Store
Apple and Fender are working together to bring a USB version of the Squier Stratocaster guitar to Apple users. The Stratocaster is available for US$199 and is sold exclusively through the Apple store.
The guitar is chock full of features that'll appeal to both the traditional and the digital musician. The guitar includes an analog output so you can use it with an amp and a stereo headphone jack for private playing. It also has a mini-USB connector that offers bi-directional audio streaming and lets you pipe your music directly to your Mac or iOS device without the need for additional hardware.
The USB Stratocaster works with Mac OS X 10.7 or later and iOS devices with a 30-pin adapter, which include the iPhone 4/4S, the iPod touch third and fourth generation and the iPad 1/2. It'll also work with Lightning-equipped devices like the iPhone 5 when paired with a Lightning to 30-pin Adapter.
