2.0 out of 5 stars Wammy-Bar Broke After First Day..., August 13, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wireless Guitar for Wii Guitar Hero and Rock Band Games (exclude Rock Band 1) Color White, Compatible with All Guitar Hero games and Rock Band 2 (Video Game)
After seeing the high reviews that this guitar controller received before I bought it I thought "Why not, it's inexpensive and apparently it work well." Well I'm here to tell you, based on my experience, this guitar controller didn't live up to my expectations...

Initially everything was fine. The guitar looks just as good as the Activision guitar controller that came with Guitar Hero 3 for the Wii. The center yellow fret button was a bit harder to push than the others but after three songs I was getting used to it. Me and my daughter enjoyed playing against each other in battles to prove who was "King (or Queen) of the Ax."

It wasn't more than two hours into playing that I noticed the sounds of my notes were sounding strange - as if I was using the "wammy-bar" all the time. Sure enough, I was! The wammy-bar was stuck "on" the entire time. Nothing I did could keep it from un-sticking.

I sent it back to "Electronics & Video Games Accessories" the next day. So here I am out more than $20.00 of shipping expenses just because I wanted to save some money from buying the more expensive Activision model.

In short, spend the money and buy the real thing, the Activision guitar controller. My Activision controller hasn't broken with over a year of use.
