Evidently the Zivix “Jamstik” isn’t the big hit they thought it would be, because today old stock is being blown out at 40% off. In case you didn’t see it before, the Jamstik is a “guitar” that was aimed at the iPhone world. I assume they thought only Apple fans would pay $300 for a gizmo that was “useless” without an iPhone or iPad. And has only five frets.

At least, that was how they started out; Android support is being waved around, although not ready yet(?). It has a USB MIDI-data output, so presumably it will work with any desktop or laptop apps capable of accepting generic MIDI controller data. So they claim anyway. Good luck with compatibility issues.

Also, it’s “made in America”. Uh huh, suuuure.
