When first reveled back in E3 2010, Fender’s Squier Stratocaster guitar controller turn lots of heads. Mainly because it was more than just a controller shaped like a guitar, it was a real guitar. The day that all gamers knew would come was here; being able to learn (or attempt to) the same riffs and chords from Rock Band songs on a real guitar. Today on their website, Fender has announced that they will be taking pre-orders for the Squier Stratocaster starting January 1st and will start selling them on March 1st. A couple of things to note: first in order to use the Stratocaster, the Mad Catz MIDI Pro-adapter would have to be used, which sells for $30 and second the pro guitar can only be used in the Pro Mode of Rock Band 3. The cost of the real guitar controller is $280, which is about the same price for a regular standard guitar. Now gamers can start living out their fantasies of rocking out like Jimmy Henderix on a real Stratocaster guitar instead of a plastic one.Fender announces Squier guitar release date and price for Rock Band 3
