Fender ‘Rock Band 3’ Guitar
When Rock Band 3 was first introduced, the game’s developer, Harmonix, announced that they would be teaming up with Fender to produce a fully functional guitar that would be compatible with the game’s new pro mode. Since that announcement neither Fender nor Harmonix have been able to confirm when the product would be available or how much it would cost, until now.
According to Fender’s official Web site, the Fender Squier Stratocaster Guitar and Controller will be available for pre-order starting January 1 and will ship to customers and retailers on March 1 of next year. The guitar/controller hybrid is set to be priced at $279.99.
The Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller is a full-size electric guitar with a full 22-fret maple neck, and steel strings. The fretboard features position-sensing technology that determines a player’s performance note-for-note and a specialized bridge pickup detects how a player strums or picks each string. It can be plugged into an guitar amp and played like any other electric guitar, and since it features digital sensor technology, even supports MIDI output for professional digital recording.
