You won’t need even a tiny practice amp with the Fusion Guitar. In a body about the same size and weight as an average acoustic guitar, Fusion has incorporated a “US designed ultra-efficient 20 Watt Class-D amplifier module with low noise (-90dB) and low distortion (THD+N = 0.1%)” and “two Tymphany Peerless full range speakers coupled with one high frequency tweeter enclosed in an advanced proprietary patent-pending floating speaker housing for low vibration and feedback.” It’s all powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery that gives you up to six hours of playing time at full volume.
The guitar itself has a full-scale maple neck that extends through the body to the bridge for strength and traditional tone. It’s available with your choice of a maple or rosewood fingerboard. It has two interchangeable high-output humbucking pickups with a coil split switch, providing a total of 15.6K ohms, and a high quality bridge. Controls include: speaker and pickup volume dials, three-way pickup selector, and three lineout options for PA, amp, or headphones. As you would expect, there’s a 1/4″ traditional guitar plug for use with external effects, amps, or PA or speaker systems; a 3.5mm output is used for headphones. There are many more technical specs discussed on the Fusion Guitars page; check there for more information.
And Fusions Guitars are designed to work with apps on your iPhone or iPod touch so you can learn to play, process your sound, or even record with the apps. Each Fusion comes with a set of form-fitting docks to allow most every iPhone since the iPhone 5 right up to the iPhone 8/8+ (excluding the iPhone 5c) and the 5th and 6th gen iPod touch to plug right into the top of the Fusion. (They are working on a dock for the iPhone X now.) The Fusion’s on-board computer has “proprietary electronics with MFi Apple Certified device compatibility integrated with on-board customer designed PCBA assembly for sound processing and power distribution.”
The Fusion Guitar is available only in black with a choice of maple or rosewood fingerboard for $999.00.
