Fusion Guitar Launches in the U.S.

The guitar body houses a 20-watt Class-D amplifier and features a built-in iPhone/iPod dock.

New York, NY (August 15, 2017) -- More than 20 years in the making, the long-awaited and highly anticipated line of Fusion Guitars are now available online to musicians in the U.S. at www.fusionguitars.com.

Billed as “the world’s most advanced electric guitar” Fusion Guitars allow musicians to unplug, learn and create music anywhere life takes them.

Incorporating a built-in amp, speakers and seamless iPhone integration for unprecedented access to tones, guitar effects and apps, these high-quality next generation musical instruments feature:

  • Apple iPhone and iPod dock with 24-bit/96kHz audio interface
  • Full-scale high quality maple neck with the option of rosewood or maple fingerboard
  • Powerful built-in 20 Watt Class-D amplifier module with low noise (-90dB)
  • HD speakers - 2 full range speakers plus a higher frequency tweeter aimed upward
  • Patented floating speaker box – a unique feature which allows the speaker to "float" in the guitar body on rubber mounts. This design reduces the amount of vibration transmission between the guitar body and speaker to avoid audio feedback and improve volume
  • Patented neck-thru-body construction
  • Rechargeable battery with 4-6 hour battery life
  • Dual Humbucker pickups - Hot-rail Bridge Humbucker with parallel / series options via push/pull switch alongside a traditional neck Humbucker pickup
  • Portable Size - Dimensions: 33 x 11.4 x 3.2 inches
  • Supplied with custom-designed padded gig bag

“My life has been about music and my quest to create the ultimate electric guitar,” said Dave McAuld, Fusion Guitars. “We designed the Fusion Guitar to be the 21st century guitarists’ gateway to enjoyable musical expression anywhere and anytime. Combining the Fusion with iOS guitar apps unleashes amazing possibilities for learning, creating, performing and sharing music.”

AmpliTube is an all-inclusive tone and recording studio that gives you an expandable collection of ultra-realistic virtual versions of some of the most coveted gear on the planet.
