gTar opens for pre-orders this week, shipping the week after

Here's a fun bit of news we're hoping doesn't get lost in the CES deluge: Kickstarter success story Incident is finally ready to start moving on its rock 'n roll iPhone dock, the gTar. The smartphone-friendly educational instrument is opening up for pre-orders this week, at $399 a pop. Josh from the company tells us that the first units have arrived at Incident headquarters and will start shipping next week, once all the requisite QAing is done. The iPhone 5 will also work with the device, if you've got the Apple adapter. A native gTar adapter, meanwhile, is coming later this year, "when Lightning connector components are made available to third-party suppliers." Those docks can be swapped in at home by users.
