The Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top iOS Electric Guitar is a USB-enabled guitar that's hip to the trends of the new millennium. It's a Deluxe Strat with a side-mounted USB output for connecting to your phone, tablet, or computer -- so you can record your guitar without an audio interface. It's got a humbucker in the bridge, which means crunchier distortion and a groovier low end. So grab this axe and connect to your favorite recording or signal-processing software, and step into the 21st century.
HSS Pickup ConfigurationWith standard Strat single-coils in the neck and middle positions and a humbucker at the bridge, the Deluxe Strat HSS Plus Top iOS has a bolder low end than the typical Strat. That means you can play a wider range of styles without changing your axe.
iOS Connectivity and USB OutputStep into the 21st century with Fender's iOS-friendly Strat. A USB mini-B port at the base allows you to connect directly to iPhone, iPad, or laptop via USB cable. Record, equalize, or manipulate your Strat sound any way you like on your favorite software with practically no latency. It's designed in collaboration with Apple to pair perfectly with your iDevice -- and you don't even need an audio interface to record this guitar.
Grab your iOS device, your Deluxe Strat HSS Plus Top iOS and a pair of headphones -- and have a field day experimenting with effects and amp modeling software anytime, anywhere.

Product DescriptionThe Fender Deluxe Stratocaster HSS Plus Top with IOS Connectivity lets you expand the sonic possibilities of the world's greatest electric guitar by plugging it straight into iOS devices such as your iPhone, iPad, iPod or computer--with no need for any external devices--for easy recording, editing, monitoring and more. Along with all its other great features, you get superior signal-to-noise ratio and remarkable dynamic range for an exciting and truly state-of-the-art playing experience.
The guitar's built-in USB audio interface is what does the trick. You can always play it as a great-sounding standard HSS Stratocaster, but the USB output and 1/8" stereo headphone output on the side of the lower bout deliver a whole other world of sonic versatility and creativity. Use the included USB mini-B to Lighting cable to connect the guitar directly to your iPhone, iPad or iPod, or use the included USB mini-B to USB Type A cable to connect directly to your Mac or PC (a custom USB mini-B to MFi 30-pin cable for connection to older iPhone, iPad and iPod models is sold separately). And to top it all off, it's a gorgeous guitar with a beautiful flame maple top in a choice of Aged Cherry Burst or Tobacco Sunburst gloss finishes.
Other features include a maple neck with "modern C" profile and gloss finish, maple or rosewood fingerboard with 9.5" radius and 22 medium jumbo frets, single-coil neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way switching and three white plastic control knobs (master volume, master tone, headphone volume), three-ply parchment pickguard and vintage-style synchronized tremolo bridge with six saddles.
