The Jamstik is a portable digital guitar that...someone appears to have confused for a zombie and hacked up into little pieces. But while the part of the instrument Zivix would now like to sell you is missing its body, headstock, and tuners, the savvy tech company has sorted out a way for musicians to bang out "Stairway to Heaven" as usual. Connect the Jamstick to an Apple device and you'll be able to produce sound as the hatcheted guitar uses light to scan your fingers, which are still able to strum real strings on real frets.
The Jamstick requires no tuning and connects wirelessly to iPads, iPhones, and Macs running OS X 10.6 and up. Play it nearly anywhere with or without irritating those around you using the stick's volume controls and free jamTutor teaching app. Additional features include MIDI controller functionality, infrared light that will show your hands in action, and sound adjustment controls that can make the Jamstick sound like a piano, drum, harp, etc.
Jamstick is on offer for a limited time at $100 off its retail price from Dude Exclusives.
