5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent controller with a bad reputation. April 11, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
When Rock Band rolled out last November, Harmonix/EA had some quality control problems with the first wave or two of guitar controllers. Being an early adopter, I lived through these issues and was rather frustrated that this much-anticipated game couldn't deliver on its promise.

It's April, now, and the separate guitar controller is finally available.

So, should you get it, or will you end up sending it off for repair, or returning it, or just plain smashing it out of frustration?

The first thing to address is the quality of the controller. It gets bashed a lot for the one serious defect the first batch of controllers had: the strum bar on many, many of them broke after just a few hours use.

Obviously, that's unacceptable, and Harmonix and EA both knew that. They jumped on the problem with both feet and by the end of January, virtually everyone who had problems finally had a controller in hand that wasn't defective.

So let's put that on the shelf. It's in the past now: I have two of these controllers and they both work as well as or better than any GH controller I ever had.

Let's address the real question: is this a controller you want to play with?

It's decidedly different from every Red Octane GH controller, to be sure, so if you're a big fan of the GH controllers, you will almost certainly not like this controller the first time you pick it up. Unless you're an absolute creature of habit, my suggestion is to give it some time: play with it for a few weeks, recognizing that your performance may actually degrade a bit while you get accustomed to the controller.

Here are the most obvious differences that affect performance:

Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
We purchased this to give as a Christmas gift to our children as they enjoy playing Rock Band / Band Hero with their friends and were wanting another guitar to allow for more players. When it arrived it came in a basic brown cardboard box with the item information printed on the side, not in the original box which was tacky in and of itself, but the box was also covered in large red dots leading my husband and I to believe these are seconds or refurbishments being sold as new.

The product information should note that it is not shipped in the original box and that it may be a resale item. The guitar itself is finicky and does not work as it should. The keys are loud (the clicking is very distracting) and tend to stick and do not always register when they are being pushed. This does not work as well as our original Rock Band 2 guitar that came with the set when we purchased it last year. We are not pleased with our purchase at all.

I wish I had read through the more recent reviews rather than the most helpful as apparently others have experienced similar issues. BUYER BEWARE!

1.0 out of 5 stars No overdrive September 10, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I just got this today, and it works perfectly fine if you don't want to go into overdrive. Trying to deploy overdrive with this thing made we want to scream. I felt like smashing it into tiny little bits because I would spend so much time frustrated at it while trying to deploy overdrive that I would completely fail out of the song. Don't buy this. Look for the newer model.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a caution... November 15, 2010
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I just received this guitar... and it turns out it was packaged with generic brown cardboard... there's no rock band labelling at all... it looks like it was ripped from a rock band 2 bundle and was sold like that...

It should work fine and everything... but just be cautioned!! (that's why I rate fun 5, overall 2) I bought this from Worldwide Distributor and fulfilled by Amazon... so beware...

4.0 out of 5 stars "Star Power" June 5, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is extremely fun and will make time fly by. I hated the guitar at first, but I'm getting used to it and it's not as bad anymore. The only trouble I really have with it is activating the "star power" or overdrive or whatever it is. I hate having to hit select whenever I want to activate because it breaks my concentration on the song.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bad batch of wireless guitar May 19, 2008
By J. Liu
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I didn't purchase mine from Amazon, but from gamestop store.
First one I got, it will not sense me have tilted the guitar, and not matter how hard I try to tilted it, it will go into overdrive mode, I have to press "select" button to use it.
Returned, and got another one. This time, when I tilted it, it does go into overdrive, but not as sensitive as the one that came with the whole package. The stock one will go into overdrive if it senses me slightly going upward. This one I have to do it hard, or maybe twice or three times before it would go into overdrive, it is kind of frustrating, but just to share with you guys the experience that I had.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally -- the band is complete May 14, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've waited 4 months for this guitar. Since the initial purchase of my Rock Band on PS3, I've waited patiently for the 2nd guitar to complete out the band. Choosing not to go the devious route to get my second guitar was hard, but worth it.

The guitar is exactly like the one in the Rock Band box set and works seamlessly with my PS3 and the game. Now to win more fans and money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the best guitar but worth the price August 9, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Most people complain how this guitar is cheap feeling or doesn't have the build, feel, or ease of use as the Rock Band 2 and up guitar models. This may be true, but despite these slight issues, the guitar works great for what you pay. The main thing about the controller is the feel and it feels more sturdy than a guitar hero controller, and the buttons aren't awkwardly placed. Sure if you are a real guitar player it takes getting used to the plastic neck feel but overall it has a good feel and good length with an adjustable strap. The buttons also are easy to press and don't get stuck nor are too hard to press down. Of course the strumming bar also feels pretty natural although I wish it was a little more sensitive and natural feeling. Whammy bar is perfectly placed so you can access it while strumming and the effect knob is also a decent feature, although you won't really want to be bothered touching this once the song starts playing. As for overdrive, it takes getting used to but it does work once you figure it out. You need to tilt the guitar vertically while your meter is half or more full. This is a lot easier than it sounds but can take getting used to and is somewhat impractical for hard or up difficulties, but still manageable if you are able to finger and strum while you cock your guitar. Another way that is highly unrecommended unless you are in the middle of a 5 or more second break is hit the select button and while this way is easier and more guaranteed than cocking is also require you to take your strumming hand away from the bar. The guitar is pretty plain looking, even compared to guitar hero guitars and the neck is just one color. Overall though it is cheap and can be found for around $20 new while it is almost impossible to find Rock Band 2 and up guitars under $40. Read more ›
