Jamstik+ isn't an electric guitar but a synthesizer. It plays sampled chords or sounds depending on where you touch, hold or strum the instrument.
Jamstik+ is a unique new MIDI controller that's being marketed as a 'smart guitar,' this small and lightweight device recalls the look of Steinberger basses from the 80's, which are basically a neck, strings and pickups and not much else. It pairs to your iOS device via an app and can simulate various sounds ranging from steel strings to wah-wah distorted guitars and even sitars, saxophones and other synth sounds.
