It looks like an ordinary electric guitar, except for a little LED screen on its body and blinking lights up and down the fretboard that show you where your fingers should go. But the gTar
, besides being "The First Guitar That Anybody Can Play," hooks to your iPhone. The gTar app
includes "...a variety of classical guitar pieces, modern rock, pop, and everything in between." The gTar Kickstarter campaign
in 2012 raised $353,392 even though it only asked for $100,000. The company that makes the gTar, Incident Technologies
, started in a garage in Cupertino (Silicon Valley) and is now located in San Francisco after several moves caused by the company's rapid growth. On their Support page
they say, "We don't have a brick-and-mortar location for you to try the gTar yet, but we're working on it. In the meantime, check us out at events like Maker Faire, TechCrunch Disrupt, and many others."
