Guitar Hero III Guitars Having Issues
Some gamers who picked up the new Les Paul guitars when Guitar Hero III was released recently have been complaining of various problems with the guitar, ranging from nonfunctional buttons and strum bars to sound issues. While these may be isolated issues, there certainly are a number of them, so potential buyers might want to be wary of picking the game and guitar up in the meantime.
There are a ton of threads on the official Guitar Hero forums, with a thread dedicated solely to the problem being posted by Activision. If you are having issues, you should visit that thread and provide the information that’s been requested to help Activision get to the bottom of this.
I guess I’m lucky that my local GameStop was sold out.
