    I think that the june 2009 and newer macbooks don't have an analog audio in. I could be mistaken though.

    Your best bet is a very basic usb audio interface.

    Meh, I am wrong. quoted from here http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3625

    Still I am not sure whether it boosts the signal from your guitar pickups enough to be recorded.

    Regardless of whether or not the 09 MBPs support analog audio or not, you really should spring for a cheap USB interface of some sort, like the M-Audio Fast Track. It's got a Hi-Z input designed to accept the input from a guitar, and it'll just work a lot better.
