The Guitar Apprentice is a $99 plastic guitar with a spot to hold in your iPad. Along the neck there’s a total of 84 buttons that correspond to the strings and frets on a regular guitar. As with other iOn music teach devices it uses the iPad to explain what you’re doing, and then lights up the buttons you need to press in order to do that.
Ion says the buttons on the plastic quitar have been made to feel like you’re really playing with the strings of a guitar, but that seems a bit unlikely. Still, it seems like a pretty great device if you want to learn how to play guitar and you have an iPad. It’ll be out sometime this year with a price tag of $99.99.
