    Has anyone found a way of buying a 'Wooden guitar' from Amazon.com?
    They have, for instance, the MadCatz Wooden Stratocaster for $60, but wont ship to Europe. There are some plastic guitars they will ship to europe, but none of the wooden ones that I can find.
    Cheers

    You can get the logitech wooden guitar from ebay for about £70. I have one myself and i could never go back to a plastic one now

    I had a quick look for the Logitech guitars on their web-site but couldn't see them listed other than in old news-bits. I too have one and think it's excellent. I like a 5-button guitar with a good bit of heft to it.

    In fact, here's a thread I made a while back about them. Looks like Bamford did swoop on one!

    Thanks for the info, still available on ebay, tempting...
    I prefer the look of the Madcatz ones, really don't like the GH fret buttons.
    Hmmm, I've just bought a You-Rock Guitar, for RB Pro, Frets-on-fire, and to actually (try to) play for real.
    I'll give that a chance and then think again about it.
    Its only officially supported for GH and although we have a bunch of them I only play RB and RB3 - is there any issues with those games?

    Cheers
    Keith

    I dot think anyone on here actually plays Guitar Hero anymore, so yes, they defiitely do work with Rock Band. :D

    Also, just so you know, Ive heard that the madcatz ones have a ridiculously loud strum bar, however the logitech one is mostly silent.

    Would recommend anyone who is still ever going to play legacy guitar to snap one of these up from Trusted Goods. Excellant value for money considering the build.

    Mine arrived tuesday, tried it out last night for 3 hours or so :)
    Very nice build and finish, a good weight.
    Would have preferred Rockband style fretbuttons instead of the toylike GH buttons, and the strange slidey pad thing - whats that all about?
    Cheers

    I think it was for "solo mode", and you could tap the panel when doing Jimi Hendrix style solos?

    Are these available for the PS3? I wouldnt mind another 5-button guitar, as over crimbo my mates didnt like the YouRock in 5-button mode.

    You can get the guitar for ps3 and it looks a lot better than the xbox one (its black). However, after a quick look on ebay and a google search it seems like its very hard to get them in england.
    You can import one, but it would cost you about £100. Heres a couple of links for you mate.
