Engadget giveaway: Win a Jamstik+ smart guitar courtesy of Zivix!

Let your inner rock star shine.

If you've always wanted to learn guitar, but never seemed to make it past the first few bars of 'Stairway to Heaven', this week's giveaway could be of help. The Jamstik+ is a Bluetooth-connectable instrument that boasts real strings and frets, and works alongside the company's app to help train first timers and provide portable freedom for impromptu jam sessions. The fretboard includes infrared sensors to gauge your finger placement, which allows the app's virtual tutor to track your progress in real time. There's also an arcade mode to add a gaming angle to the learning process. Until recently, the experience was limited to Mac and iOS, but now you can download the app for verified devices running Android 6.0. To help celebrate this launch, Zivix has given us a pair of Jamstik+ smart guitars and carrying cases for two lucky winners. All you need to do is head to the Rafflecopter widget below for up to three chances at winning. If you're looking to pick one up now, just use the code "androidweek30" for $30 off.

Winners: Congratulations to Akash V. of Merced, CA and Greg K. of Youngstown, OH!
