5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Guitar April 12, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Let me first off say that I bought this wireless Strat because I was hoping that it would work with Rock Band and Guitar Hero. It does not work with Guitar Hero. That being said the guitar seems to be a little more solid than the one that came with the game. A lot of people seem to like the Guitar Hero Les Paul better. However, I really play guitar, and I can honestly say that this one feels more like the real thing. The buttons allow sliding chords, the buttons feel more like frets than buttons, and overall it seems more second nature when playing.

Ultimately, this is a purchase for those who need freedom from the usb hub and 10 foot cable. As for Guitar Hero, well their taking sides has forced me as a consumer to choose sides. I am sticking with Rock Band.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Buy Yet! April 17, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I owned an original wired Fender Rock Band Guitar. That one works awesome, and I consider it superior to the Gibson Guitar Hero III guitar. However, I just got my wireless guitar, and the tilt sensor does not work. I went to the support website and forums. Apparently many of the first batch of wireless guitars have this problem. Although this is covered under warranty, I will be without the guitar for approximately 21 days while they ship me a box, in which I will ship my broken guitar back to EA. They will then ship a replacement wireless guitar. I would urge caution when buying because of this. Hopefully, EA and Harmonix will rectify this problem and future production batches will have better quality.
**Update**
30 days after sending my guitar in for replacement: EA says all replacements are back-ordered and could take an additional 9 days more from their orginal 3 to 4 week replacement estimate. Buy at your own risk! Other wireless guitar controller issues have been reported on the Rock Band forums as well. I would recommend buying this guitar at a brick and mortar store where you can return it immediately if you have problems. The warranty replacement takes way too long. Some people on the forums even report that their replacement has issues as well. It's a shame because Rock Band is an awesome game.
**Update 2**
After 35 days EA sent me a wired guitar controller to tide me over until my wireless guitar controller is repaired or replaced. The cool thing is I get to keep the wired guitar even after my wireless one is ready. I didn't call them and complain either. EA did this without my provoking them.
**Update 3**
After 45 days EA sent me a replacement/refurbished/repaired wireless guitar. The guitar performs as advertised.

3.0 out of 5 stars A lesson in simplicity of design September 9, 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are two ways that an item can be poorly designed: too simple to perform the task, or so complex that when something breaks you may as well chuck it in the trash. I always prefer the former problem to the latter.

This controller has been the target of a great deal of criticism over a few things that commonly go wrong with it. Since buying it in April, with consistently heavy use, I have had two problems with it. First the strum bar was sticking in the down position instead of re-centering. The guitar is extremely easy to open up, and inside you can see that a couple of small sponges are being relied upon to bounce the bar back into position. Simple, but ineffective in the long run. It was amazingly easy to put two small rubber bands in place that had it working again. Second, I had a problem with the whammy bar not springing back into position. Once again, rubber bands to the rescue! A rubber band stretched from the strap-anchor at the bottom of the guitar around the base of the whammy bar, and voila! Good as new.

So despite the problems with the design, kudos to the manufacturer for at least making the mechanical aspect of the design so incredibly simple that any idiot can fix it.

I have never played a guitar game on anything other than this controller, so I cannot compare this to the wireless Les Paul replica, for example, used in Guitar Hero. I understand that it, too, has problems. The bottom line is that these are not just pieces of electronics -- they're mechanical devices. Mechanical devices should be expected to require some repair if they are being put to heavy use. I'd rather have a problem that can be fixed with rubber bands than one that requires a soldering iron or a re-wiring job, that's for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more wires - I'm a free man! April 17, 2008
By Weck
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The wireless Fender is a must-buy for anyone who is really into Rock Band - especially if you play with a quartet and like to jam out with them. Personally when I'm playing I don't like to be close to the TV; I prefer to stand back about 10 feet. If you're playing with a group you don't want to be all jammed in close together. With wires involved, "spreading out" is not really an option. I don't know how many times I yanked the cord out of the USB hub when I flung the guitar up to go into "Overdrive."

Sure, the wireless guitar is overpriced, but you will no doubt get your money's worth if you play a lot and have downloaded more awesome songs from the Xbox Live Marketplace. It's also nice to have a spare guitar so your buddy doesn't have to bring his over whenever you want to get together and play.

I suppose the only downside is that you don't plug the guitar in anywhere to charge it. It comes with three AA batteries which go into the back of the Fender, in a compartment that you need a little screwdriver to open whenever you replace the batteries. Since I've only had the guitar 2 days I don't really know the extent of the battery life, but I'm sure that since I've been playing nonstop they're not really going to get a lot of mileage.

Even so, I don't care as long as I can jam out without a short wire connecting me to the Xbox. I literally felt so unleashed with my new Fender that I leaped onto the couch and hammered on while Boston's "More Than A Feeling" played at full bore. Of course, at about that time my wife (a.k.a. drummer) came into the room and began laughing hysterically at my stupor. What can I say? I had to let loose - with no wires holding me back, I'm a free man!
