Summary: I can't tell if the guitar is any good. Though it feels OK, I can't get the software to work. Seriously, I am a pretty smart dude, and I followed all the instructions. But now I can't get the software to recognize the guitar, the software won't even allow me to select options the instructions tell me to select. I would NOT-NOT-NOT recommend purchasing this unless you intend to use the guitar with other software, or an amp. gillmac @ yahoo . com if you have any questions.
Summary: The ION Discover Guitar may be excellent but only for someone with pretty advanced computer skills. The software is not user friendly. Even with a computer consultant helping us, we needed to call tech support to get started. Lots of complicated things to do to get going and make the thing work. We're thinking of sending it back.
Summary: I've been looking at these for a few months, and was going to buy the Behringer iAxe, but had read quite a few reviews about it not working with newer macs, so i bought this one instead as it comes with Guitar Rig LE, and it works great with my Mac (OS X version 10.6.7 - Intel Core 2 Duo). This guitar has provided me with many hours of fun and laughter with my children, and i'm enjoying being able to learn how to play.
Summary: Bought this for my boyfriend, he loves it. The software is pretty cool, you can pick from different musical genres to get different sounds and the recording is really easy to do. If I'd had to buy everything separately it would have cost me a fortune. I'd definitely recommend it.
