The authentically strung electric guitar/controller will retail for $280 and become available for sale on March 1, 2011.

Using the Squier as a guitar controller requires users also have the MadCatz MIDI adapter which reportedly will retail for $40 but works for MIDI compatible guitar, keyboards and Drum kits.
