First the divas and now the rockers. On Thursday, T-Mobile announced that it will release a special edition of the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G that has been redesigned in partnership with renowned guitar manufacturer, Fender.

The myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition model will be available starting on January 20 for $179.99 with a two-year contract and features a new sunburst finish inspired by Fender guitars as well as a number of enhancements centered around, not surprisingly, music. For one, the phone now has a 3.5mm headphone jack and also ships with a 16GB microSD card for storing all your multimedia and a download link to doubleTwist, which lets you synch your music, images, and videos from your computer.

In addition, the Fender myTouch 3G ships with other music apps like Guitar: Solo and Music Light and comes preloaded with songs from Eric Clapton, Avril Lavigne, Brad Paisley, and Wyclef Jean. For the die-hard Fender fans, you can even buy additional accessories, such as more Fender-branded shells, a Fender carrying case, a Fender screen protector, and a Rock Dock with Speakerphone to go along with your phone.

One last piece of news that will be music to your ears? The T-Mobile myTouch 3G Fender Limited Edition will be upgradable to Android 2.1 this spring. Rock on.
