Of the seven guitar controllers I have used, this one, even after four years, is still number two on my list.

The reason this guitar really works is the same reason that newer models of guitar controllers don't: nothing fancy was done. The guitar is hard plastic, single body construction. No detachable neck, overly large whammy bar, long or wide neck, silent strum bar, loose frets, too heavy, and so on.

This and the controller that came with Guitar Hero: Aerosmith (my all time favorite) are both about the same weight, but the GH:A controller was wireless, and when it finally gave out it just became too expensive to keep buying it on its own to justify using it as my primary controller. So since that one isn't economically viable, I have gone to my number two to fill the void, and it does so beautifully.

I think the state of current guitar controller models can be summed up in a short story that took place a couple weeks ago. I had recently purchased the Logitech Xbox 360 Wireless Guitar Controller, and when I showed the couple of friends I frequently play Rock Band with, they were both blown away at its beauty and realism. But over the next few hours (I brought the Logitech and the XPLORER) over which both were handed around and used quite a bit, the unanimous conclusion was that the white XPLORER guitar controller was far superior. And so my conclusion is that if what gamers wanted was the heft and look of a real guitar, they would learn to play a real guitar (or try out the upcoming Pro Mode in Rock Band 3 using a MIDI guitar controller). All the bells and whistles and wirelessness in the world can't compete with results.

I bought this when GH2 first hit xbox 360. My friend and I both had these guitars, stood playing for 4 hours to beat the game in one day. Next we continued to the next difficulty, and the last. This guitar has been played by little kids to strong adults and it has always worked perfectly for me. It is easily the most durable without any removable parts that may break like other guitars often do. The fact its wireless means no battery fails midsong. Also its timing for notes is perfect. NOTE (If you have an HDTV or LCD it will need to be calibrated which ALL GH guitars are required. So if you playing on an HDTV and not hitting notes it is not the guitars fault. Sorry for killing your excuse!!) After constant abuse from GH 2,3 Rock Band, to being borrowed, to 3 year olds slamming on it. It has never failed me and still lives up to my intentions. The only thing that has been negative was the whammy bar no longer stays up on its own its slightly loose and will hang down. However I have been told I beat that thing harder than anyone before me.
Short summary, I have done research on every guitar, this is several years after the first game came out. Been playing since GH1 days. Every other guitar has had basic problems such as detachable parts not registering or notes failing. I have never once encountered a problem with this one.

GH2 Wired Xplorer is simply the best for the money!

This is one of my favorite guitars to use for guitar hero as well as rock band. The strum bar is right on as well as the notes. The only downfall that I would say is that it quit working after a year of some really heavy playing.

I did not receive an important piece as part of this package and I do not recommend this seller to anyone as he made no attempt to send me the piece that was missing even after I told him/her that it was missing.

Great game but guitar quit working after one use. The button started sticking and I had to return it. Charlie's house of discount was great and didn't give me any problems over the return. Guess I should have bought something that they still make...

The "Euphoria" slam feature, you know when you're on a streak and whip it up to go into the blue mode. It is the first thing to stop working. This wouldn't be a problem but the physical button you can hit is in a bad spot, your hand ends up hitting the whammy bar. It's a mess. You can still play it just takes away a bit of the glory.

First of all it's the one that has last me the most. Years after years of extensive play and it worked till the end. I ended up having 4 at one point, but now they are expensive. Super comfortable, the buttons feel just right, the strum bar is tight and the whammy bar is improved. It also helps that it's USB so it worked with Windows and my Xbox

I asked for a refund immediately after opening it. & the guy threatened to not return my money unless I took down the bad review I gave him. So now I have to complain on here. It came not even close to as described. It didn't have the USB connector (dongle cable) or guitar strap. The end piece of the wire that connects to the dongle was damaged. It was a totally different guitar with stickers/scrapes and paint on body that were not shown. A picture was provided of a different guitar so I'd buy it and I am super disappointed in the guitar I received.
