Lie to Yourself, Others with this Actual Guitar Rock Band Guitar
Soon avid Rock Band 3 players will be able to pretend they’re actually applying their time to developing some kind of musical talent with the Fender Squier Stratocaster guitar controller — which is an actual guitar.
The guitar is exclusive to Best Buy, which is currently accepting preorders for the controller. It’ll run you $279.99 and is already compatible with all three console platforms, but you’ll need to purchase a MadCatz MIDI PRO-Adapter — $39.99 — for your Xbox 360, Playstation 3 or Nintendo Wii.
Actually, you might really be able to develop some musical skill the Squier, which is designed for Rock Band 3‘s PRO mode that lets you use actual strings, frets and chords to play the game, and learn something more than just that green is the top fret button.
Here are the rest of the Strat’s features straight from the BestBuy.com listing:
- Agathis wood body with polyester finish
- 22-fret maple neck with polymer fingerboard and position-sensing electronics
- Enclosed tuners
- Custom bridge pickup
- Custom truss rod
- 1/4″ output jack
- Standard 5-pin MIDI output jack, compatible with MIDI recording software
You can snag your Squier Strat when it’s released in March, or in early April, when Best Buy is expecting to receive its shipments.
