- Fusion Guitar
- With integrated amp, speakers, battery and iPhone dock, the Fusion is redefining what an electric guitar is, and what it can do. Combining the Fusion with guitar apps unleashes unlimited possibilities for learning, playing, creating and sharing music.
- Do the effects pedals and amps on the guitar apps sound authentic?
- They sound incredible; we have built this guitar because they sound so good. There are YouTube videos of people comparing the sounds produced by the apps to the sounds of the actual hardware amps and effects and it's’ almost impossible to tell the difference. For example checkout what people say about Bias by Positive Grid on YouTube.
