Product Description

Platform: PlayStation 3

Rock out with biggest guitarists, bassists, drummers, and singers of all time with this Rock Band Wireless Guitar, whether as a solo artist or as part of a hard rocking band. The makers of this guitar made unprecedented deals with top record labels and music publishers to bring you music that spans all genres of rock and includes many master recordings from legendary artists. You can add another guitar to your band for the full 4-player Rock Band experience. This guitar is a modeled replica of the classic Fender Stratocaster guitar. It is fully wireless so you can flail as wildly as you shred. The controller also includes 5 additional frets at the top of the neck so you can tap out extreme solos without having to strum.

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:

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 Works Flawlessly. November 21, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The guitar came the next day after I ordered it. (Amazon Prime rules). It works just like it should. And for $29.99 versus $59.99, I'm very happy, and will purchase again if I need another replacement guitar for my PS3! =)

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.
