      5.0 out of 5 stars Great Fun and a Good Learning Tool - Highly Recommended December 30, 2010
      By McQ
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
      Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
      When I was contemplating buying this item I had two main questions on my mind:

      1. Would upgrading from the basic five-button RB guitar to this Pro Guitar be worth the significant price tag?
      2. If I owned this would I be able to learn how to play guitar from RB3?

      Short Answers:
      1. Yes
      2. Mostly

      Long Answers:
      1. Like everyone else who ever played guitar/bass on Rock Bandbefore this came out, I have always played with the basic five-button strum bar controller. I most always had fun playing with this controller, occaisonally I would lose myself in the music, and feel like I was actually making the music with an instrument. However, the basic controller always has an arcade game vibe to it - and this would sometimes deminish the experience.

      The new Pro Guitar controller definitely takes the Rock Band experience to a whole new level. MadCatz did an excellent job designing the guitar and Harmonix did an excellent job integtrating it seamlessly into gameplay. When you first pick it up, it looks pretty intimidating (which is not suprising, as you've probably just moved from 5 buttons to 6x17 = 102 buttons), but the RB3 Pro Guitar tutorials will get you up and running really quickly. The notation is simple enough - though it can be hard to figure as the notes and chords are coming towards you on the screen, and navigating the thing can be difficult - these things honestly take some getting used to - but if you are thinking about purchasing this item, you are probably up for the challenge. And the payoff is fantastic. Many songs are ridiculously fun on the Pro Guitar. Sometimes it can be really hard to put down because as you get better, the game only gets more fun and more intense, and it is not that hard to get better.

      5.0 out of 5 stars Two novices and a practiced guitar player approve. January 4, 2011
      By Josh
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
      Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
      My wife and I love it. Simple as that. And it shipped Amazon-fast overnight! For the price difference, I wouldn't consider the step down to non-pro unless you're just ordering it for a kid who doesn't care (no kids here). But even then... I think the training portion of Rock Band 3 alone makes the extra $$$ worth spending on this pro version just in case they might take to learning a few chords and graduate to a real starter guitar (not at all inconceivable). My friend who plays a little was really impressed by its training value, and even took out his real guitar to play along with songs so I could see and hear the difference and appreciate what I was learning while playing a game.

      Pros: You can actually learn to play guitar. Really. Chords and all.
      Cons: You can actually build-up calluses on your fingers if you press too hard and play too long.

      Conclusion: If you really just want the 5-button game, then reconsider. If you want something you can take to the next level after playing classic RB, then go pro.

      I only saw 2 reviews when we purchased, so I hope this helps...

      3.0 out of 5 stars close, but should be closer January 2, 2011
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
      Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
      I'm an accomplished guitar player, and one thing I noticed right away with this guitar is that I sometimes cannot tell which string I am fingering or which string I am picking because there is no string vibration to provide "navigational cues" and all the buttons and "strings" are the same width. Maybe they could make the strings and buttons different widths, like the strings on a real guitar.

      5.0 out of 5 stars Finally I can Shred! December 20, 2010
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
      Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
      I had this bad boy on pre-order since Aug 27th and it got delayed twice but it is now in my hands. Was it worth the wait? Yes!! I am a medium level Rock Band 3 and a Medium-Low level Guitar Hero Player. I wanted to step it up and this was the way to go. The cons... Does not appear to work with Guitar Hero games. The Frets are spaced father apart than my old Guitar. Because of this you have to re-learn how to play a bit. The pros. It feels good and plays well. Also the biggest plus is that I am now really learning the Electric guitar (in Pro Mode). Someday I will get a real guitar but for now this Axe fits the bill real fine.

      4.0 out of 5 stars Met all expectations January 27, 2011
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
      Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
      The PRO guitar met all expectations.
      It's easy to assemble and disassemble: the neck is composed of two parts which connects to the guitar body through a solid, good-looking connector.
      The strings were not to tight and looks like it's not easy to snap them.
      The neck buttons do an excelent work when it comes to simulate the strings: it takes a while to get used to it, but when you do, it feels and works great.
      Practicing some riffs in a real electric guitar was no shock after 2 hours of continuous play, which surprised me.

      Cons:
      -The frets could be a little higher, or the buttons a little lower.
      -It's also a little too pricy, since my electric guitar's starter kit's price was very close to the price of this controller.

      It ships with a guitar strap, stamped with "rockband" logo, two fender picks (one white, other black), wireless connector and batteries.
      The wireless connector provides two USB ports.

      I couldn't test the MIDI capabilities yet.

      5 stars for fun, 4 overall just because the price.

      5.0 out of 5 stars Pro Guitar really inspires and challenges February 16, 2011
      Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
      Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
      I have to be honest, when I saw this thing in person and read how to use it, I was quite scared, as I don't know how to play a guitar, so don't know the frets, notes, strings, etc. However, starting at the easy level, with easy songs, you challenge yourself in new ways, and in fact am now inspired to really learn how to play a guitar. The range of skill this instrument can support from total novice to real pro-guitarist is truly impressive. This guitar really adds long term value and challenge to the game system that a simple 4 or 5 button guitar does not offer. I am sort-of cheap, so really choked on the price when pressing the order button (buying it for my daughter for Christmas), but I myself really love this guitar now, and am totally happy with the product, and would say it is worth every penny.
