                it seems like a good idea to just plug and play. with all the different effects and recording capabilities of hte iphone/ipad...



                but for like $20 you can buy a faux iRig and BOOM youre just as connected to your iphone/ipad with your nice $1.5k MIA guitar instead of a ****************ty 200 dollar squier poop

                  Despite limitations, I'm enjoying the Fender Mustang amps. They're stoopid easy to fiddle with, especially for die-hard tube amp dinosaurs like moi. Still have four "real" amps, but they are getting harder to pickup and move around every day.

                  My Want List includes wireless connectivity (USB is so old-school), and compatibility with Fender's FUSE amplifier software. You know, the guitar + amp is really a system, not two separate pieces.

                  And as long as we're blue-skying, how about eliminating the hex pickup and give us multiple software tunings, 12-string, bouzouki, banjo, ukelele, virtual E-Bow, etc.?

                  And please put all this stuff in an American Standard Strat. A dang Tele would be nice, too.

                      I think its a cool idea. Simple connectivity, low price point, and works with existing software.

                        That's kinda funny. Behringer has offered this for a few years now. Seems a strange thing to do though when many products such as these are readily available...

                            Guess it's a way to try to cut out the middle man and add value/open new markets for instruments.

                              I agree - it seems like a reasonably prudent step to try to expand the feature set of guitars to make them more adaptable and compatible with new paradigms.
