Fusion Guitars are now available online to musicians in the U.S. at www.fusionguitars.com. The product of 20 years of portable-guitar development, more than 1,000 Fusion Guitars were pre-sold during a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo.
“My life has been about music, and my quest to create the ultimate electric guitar,” says Dave McAuld, founder of Fusion Guitars. “We designed the Fusion Guitar to be the 21st century guitarist's gateway to enjoyable musical expression anywhere and anytime. Combining the Fusion with iOS guitar apps unleashes amazing possibilities for learning, creating, performing, and sharing music.”
Fusion Guitars ($1,399 direct) allow musicians to unplug, learn, and create music anywhere life takes them. Incorporating a built-in amp, speakers, and seamless iPhone integration for access to tones, guitar effects, and apps, these high-quality, next-generation musical instruments feature:
● Apple iPhone and iPod dock with 24-bit/96kHz audio interface
● Full-scale high-quality maple neck with the option of a rosewood or maple fingerboard
● Powerful built-in 20 Watt Class-D amplifier module with low noise (-90dB)
● Two full-range speakers, plus a higher-frequency tweeter aimed upward
● Patented floating speaker box – a unique feature which allows the speaker to "float" in the guitar body on rubber mounts. This design reduces the amount of vibration transmission between the guitar body and speaker to avoid audio feedback and improve volume
● Patented neck-thru-body construction
● Rechargeable battery with 4-6 hour battery life
● Dual Humbucker pickups - Hot-rail Bridge Humbucker with parallel / series options via push/pull switch alongside a traditional neck Humbucker pickup
● Portable Size - Dimensions: 33 x 11.4 x 3.2 inches
● Supplied with custom-designed padded gig bag
● The product’s built-in iPhone/iPod dock allows for a new level of sound customization, capture, and enjoyment on-the-go. Fusion Guitars recommends IK Multimedia’s Amplitube, an essential app that lets you use your iPhone or iPod Touch to process, loop, and record your guitar.
