Guitar Wars: Gibson vs. Fender

Guitar Hero answers Rock Band.

Let the riffs--and the rivalry--begin. Not to be outdone by the Fender Stratocaster made for Harmonix's upcoming Rock Band, the latest in the Guitar Hero series will feature controllers modeled after Gibson guitars.


For Activision's Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, a Kramer model will reportedly be released for the Wii and Xbox 360 while the famed Les Paul will be available for the PlayStation 3. And in case you get tired of their look, Ubergizmo says the guitars have removable faceplates. (We know how moody musicians can be.) No matter which model you choose, we suspect it'll be more useful than a Gibson USB flash drive.
