Fender, the name synonymous with rock ‘n’ roll, has announced the dawn of a new era for musical gaming – the world’s first electric guitar that is also an officially licensed Rock Band 3 video game controller.
Created for musicians and gamers alike, the Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller is a full-size electric guitar made up of quality Fender components, including:
- a contoured wood body
- 22-fret maple neck
- steel strings
- enclosed tuners
- adjustable bridge
- custom bridge pickup
Using this piece of kit, users can elevate their rhythm gaming experience in to a real musical performance by learning and playing the actual notes and chords to favorite songs, racking up the high scores!
What’s more, using the Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller in conjunction with Rock Band 3’s Trainer Modes, means users can learn scales, chords, skills, drills and more – mastering the basics of real guitar playing before diving in to complete songs.
Outside of Rock Band 3, the instrument can be plugged into a guitar amplifier for live performance, or used as a MIDI controller in a home recording studio.
As a truly versatile ‘must have’, this instrument will rock both worlds — whether plugged into a guitar amp or into a video game console.
