Fusion Guitar is the latest instrument Indiegogo and already it has been a hit. In just a couple of weeks their campaign has garnered 411% of their modest $35,000 goal. At $400 a pop, that is a lot of guitars.
This electric guitar is designed to be integrated with an iPhone/iPod, and includes docks to support the various form factors going back to iPhone 5. Not only is it designed to take advantage of guitar apps, by directly routing the audio through an iPhone, but it can even charge the connected iPhone with its own internal batteries.
I'm particularly excited by the learning possibilities they highlight in the viewing angle:
I'm a little dubious of the sound quality you'll get off that built-in speaker, but it lends itself to a lot of portability without having to lug an amp. With an array of apps at your disposal, and the benefit of your iPhone's Internet connection, this could be the most portable guitar since the acoustic.
If you're on the fence about this one they are threatening to raise the Indiegogo pre-order price from $400 soon. With a retail price of $800 that pre-order price could jump dramatically. They hope to ship in the first quarter of 2016.
