After 2 months it will end up at goodwill for 5 bucks.

Wow! 5$ I'll hold out for that!
But seriously, 35$ for a new item not in production anymore that you may never be able to get again? I'm in.

Best guitar on the market. And Band Hero has a couple good songs, but you'd do well to pick up Rock Band 3.

I preferred the Warriors of Rock guitar that came in the game/guitar bundle only. Looks cool and works great.

I'll second the other CAG's endorsement of Rock Band 3; actually almost any of the Rock Band games are superior to the Hero series.

This kit gets pretty awful reviews on Amazon - I'm assuming its the same version thats being sold there? Some people mention there being a different kit depending on where you buy it. I'm trying to find a new guitar or 2 for use with GH and RB since one of mine has bit the dust and the other is on the verge. Just can't seem to find them cheap anywhere nowadays...

Good Find...just want to make sure before I pull the trigger, because it doesn't say...

This comes w/ the game, microphone, guitar, and drums right?

I'm considering getting this only because I need a guitar for PS3, and I can't seem to find one for cheaper than this whole bundle. Am I just not looking good enough? Seems a guitar only goes for $40+

I'm not sure if what you're looking at is the same: the two SKUs I saw on Amazon for XBOX and PS3 were for "super bundles," and with the music games I don't trust that anything is the same unless the name is exactly the same.

Big Lots was selling GH3 bundles with the wireless guitar for $20 a while ago so you could check your local stores but I have a feeling they're probably long gone. That's where I got my guitar and it works just fine with any of the Rock Band games.

Apparently there was some kind of problem with defective drums or pedals or some such thing, I'd assume they would've corrected that problem by now and if not you can always get a refund.

I bit. I was reluctant to do so since I'm also getting The Last Story, NSMB2, the Hunger Games Blu-Ray, and the God of War Saga Collection around this time too, but I figured what the hell and bit anyway.

Wow this is super tempting. We haven't had a Rock Band party in forever because both my guitars wore out. Not sure I wanna blow that much cash right now (would need to buy 2 of them). I haven't been able to find any guitars new or used in a long time. Considering they were traded in by so many so regularly at Gamestop you would think they would have been really cheap to replace.

I will say that, IMO, GH5 is better than RB1. RB2 beats them all, and RB3 is just the last word in plastic instrument gaming.

It's been too long since I played Rock Band 1, so I'll defer to your judgment on that one. ;)

Does the NEWCUTOMER10 coupon still work? If not is there one that does? I haven't ordered from Newegg in about a year.

Ya I had to bite on this, thanks OP! I'd love a full band set again, wasn't it just $50 on Target?

Anyway, pardon my ignorance, but this works all the Rock Band and Guitar Hero games, right?

EDIT: The Rock Band website site is down, but it kind of sounds like everything works with everything now.

I don't think the drums work with the original Rock Band but it should with everything else.

Pretty sure the newer guitar hero stuff (drums and guitars) don't work with Rock Band 1, but it should work with Rock Band 2.

I know my GH5 guitars worked with everything but RB1.

Google guitar comparability matrix or something like that. It's a matrix (spread sheet) that lists all the games and instruments. I think Joystiq put it together. Pretty helpful
