Rock Band 3's Real Guitar Finally Priced & Dated

Fender's real electric guitar that doubles as a Rock Band 3 controller is coming next year, according to the guitar maker. The price for the Squier controller is an impressive $279.99 USD, according to the company's official web site. Pre-orders for the expert-class controller open January 1, 2011, with the Stratocaster shipping March 1.

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK! That. I can get one with an amp, pick, strap, tuner, and back for 179.99

WTF? I thought it was going to be $150 like the mustang pro guitar. I might have bought it for $150. I didn't know it was going to take that long to release either.

Rock Band 3 is just as awesome as when I first got Rock Band 2 back in 2008. Learning new instruments is fun. The keyboard is tricky but I'm getting the hang of medium pro.

I'd like to learn pro guitar but I already have an electric and for $280 I could get around 18 guitar lessons. The RB3 would probably be more fun to learn and it doubles as a real guitar. If I have the money someday I might buy it.

yea, whats that nonsense? id really like to get this guitar so i can play these songs the way they were meant to be played but these sumbitches are really putting my balls in a blender

No one is going to shell out $280 for a Madcatz guitar. You can get a quality Ibanez or Gibson for around that much and it is REAL. This is still a modified MIDI guitar meant for the game and Xbox. They should have ditched this idea and create a way to interpret a real guitar signal to notes. I would not mind installing a MIDI pickup in one of my guitars in order to output signals for the game.

This is being made by fender not madcatz.

Are you going to install your own touch sensors in the neck as well? Good luck to you, Professor.

RB 3 is overrated, there i said it. it's a good game, i bought it on day one, but the pro mode is not helping much if you want to learn music. the only good mode is the pro drum, but thats only if you play that along with the ion rocker drumset.
