Power Gig handmade six string guitar controller rocks

I have played my share of Guitar Hero and Rock Band and playing the guitar is a lot of fun. I would bet there are a lot of people out there who wish they could play a real guitar as well as they can play Rock Band. A music game called Power Gig for the PS3 and Xbox have been out for a while now, and the game is notable for the real six string guitar controllers it uses.

A couple of handmade, limited edition guitar controllers for the game have been unveiled and are available to pre-order for the PS3 and Xbox consoles. Both versions of the controller will set you back about $250. The controllers are fully functional six string guitars that work like wireless controllers for the game.

The guitar controllers are limited editions and are handmade with a single cutaway basswood body, humbucking pickup, and a maple neck with a rosewood fretboard. The controller can register the users input all along the guitar neck.
