        It's not that bad of an idea, the only problem I see is that little port on the guitar itself being terrible quality. I have a few external hard drives with that little plug and they're terrible, if you bump the table or even breathe on it wrong the connection messes up and ejects.



        It could definitely be useful though

          I anticipate the mini USB port breaking after a few months.



          There's a reason 1/4" is still standard.

            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...







            because kids who want to learn guitar don't know about that, and when they drag their mothers to the guitar shop and see the squier with the inbuilt usb jack it's another thing for the kid/the salesman to use to open mom's wallet.



            Anything that gets kids playing guitar is a good thing in my book.

                I wouldn't if I were you, they're well known for having horrific data-suck.

                    Because a USB mini jack is just as durable as 1/4" jack.



                    I wouldn't thrash around violently with this guitar is I were any of you. Thrash around violently or.... get up suddenly, or turn around slightly, etc... I've had so man yof those jacks die on me over the years. And this was on consumer electronics that AREN'T moved around violently.



                    Knock the plugged-in jack against something with the whole weight of the guitar behind it. See how long that lasts.

                      Also 1/4" jacks can be easily repaired, how about USB?

                        Depends on how they implemented it, but I suspect it's not easily user-serviceable.

                          Unless I'm missing something this has USB -and- standard 1/4 jack, does it not?



                          So if you are messing around at home, or want to play "live" through your iDevice/Computer the option is there.



                          Should be standard really, on modern style instruments.

                            If you can repair a 1/4" instrument cable you can repair a USB.

                              i'd hit it. but only if it can do midi. but i'm too lazy to read all specs to see if it can.
                              Alternative music doesn't exist. Shoegazer music has been dead since 1991. The only shoegaze music we ever did is maybe "The Zenith" from "Silver" -- even that wasn't current when it came out. Now, I hear bands that are doing what I tried to do four years ago -- stuff that wasn't current even at that time. I just want to be a decent songwriter, not a follower. - Jason Martin, Starflyer 59, 1997

                                I would suspect not - not without some sort of software pitch to MIDI conversion, and I imagine that even if someone developed such an app, it would be mono only.
