Fender Squier Usb Stratocaster Guitar
Before the USB Stratocaster Guitar, hooking up a guitar to a Mac or iOS device required a USB-ready break-out box, but no more.
This $200 axe includes a regular 1/4-inch passive output, but also a Mini-B USB port, so plugging right in to a computer or iOS device is a snap. The high-quality headphone amp lets you listen to the output without needing an external device.
If you’re looking for a simple way to get your sound in to GarageBand, this guitar does it, and seems to do it right.
