Rock Band 3 Fender Squier Stratocaster now on pre-order

By Brenna Hillier, Tuesday, 4 January 2011 22:09 GMT


Rock Band 3’s ultimate accessory, the Fender Squier Stratocaster, is now available for pre-order in the US.

A really truly actual guitar you can use for things other than games, the Squier Stratocaster retails for USD $279.99, and is currently exclusive to BestBuy.

You’ll also need to pick up a Mad Catz MIDI PRO-Adapter for a further USD $39.99 – the guitar itself is compatible with PlayStation, Wii and Xbox 360, but you’ll need the right adapter for your chosen platform.

The Squier Stratocaster is used with Rock Band 3’s PRO mode, allowing eager shredders to use real frets and strings to teach themselves to play guitar. It features an Agathis wood body and maple neck, making it one of the most solid and weighty guitar controllers available.

Scheduled for release in March, BestBuy are forecasting a shipping date in early April.
