You should avoid device-specific interfaces wherever possible. Just get a
regular USB based audio interface, and add whatever electronics you need
between your guitar and its input ports.

Most USB interfaces these days Just Work on Linux, thanks to the
requirement that they also Just Work on iPads, where manufacturers cannot
provide device drivers but must rely (as effectively they do on Linux) on
the common USB audio driver that comes with the system.
