Behringer's USB Guitar is no joke, dudes!

Behringer's new iAXE393 USB Guitar for Mac and PC is said to offer great amp sounds with bundled software. The faux-Strat has a white finish and features a 22-fret maple neck, chrome machine heads, 3 single-coil pickups with 5-way switching and a vintage vibrato bridge.

It comes with a stereo headphone output with dedicated level control, and the included software allows jamming with guitar amps and stomp boxes. The software also plays MP3, WAV and AAC audio files, and allows variable-speed playback for learning songs and practising. No power supply (oh, what joy!) is required for the USB buss-powered guitar. It can be plugged directly into the computer (Mac or PC) for instant access to popular recording software like GarageBand, Logic or Cubase or to guitar amp/effects programs.

The package comes complete with a USB cable, adjustable guitar strap, three picks and padded gig bag, and WDM and ASIO drivers. Free audio recording/editing software can be downloaded at once it's set up. MSRP is expected to be under US$200.
