jamstik is a guitar on the go


 The guitar is such a versatile instrument. Anyone who knows a few chords can start a party. But guitars don't travel well, in cars, on planes, bikes or on foot.

Enter the jamstik. It's a compact electronic guitar that pairs with an iPad, iPhone or Mac, making it a great travelling companion and learning tool.

The jamstik connects wirelessly to a mobile device or you can plug in a USB cable. It has real strings and frets on a 15-inch body, it's powered by a USB-rechargeable battery and - get this - no tuning is required.

The guitar works with three jamstik apps. One lets you choose choose sound styles, like Fender electric or folkie acoustic, another acts as a tutor with games, lessons and how-to videos; and a third lets you create jams and mixes.

The jamstik costs $299 and is available on the jamstik website, at and in many Apple retail stores. Check it out in the video below and keep up with other pickers on jamstick's Twitter feed and Facebook page.
