I don't know if this has been discussed before, but I was searching ebay for a replacement controller and found this

Its called "Shredder"

Anyone have a review on this? Is it new? 3rd party? I am thinking aobut picking one up, looks cool imo and seems like it would work fine.

So, what do you think?

Hope this isn't considered a threadjack (as I don't know anything about your link/question, OP) but I saw Best Buy was selling just the Guitar Hero controller instore the other day. I don't know how much it costs or anything, but doesn't seem like anyone else has said anything about it.

Just a thought.

Looks like it's definately a nice alternative, makes me wonder if they'll choose to redesign the Guitar Hero controller for the sequal.

If anybody has anything to say about this, I'm considering getting it since I have yet to pick up a second controller.

Oh come now! Can you really trust a 7 year old girl for your Guitar Hero shredding needs? I think not!

There should be, just from the boxart for the game, or maybe just a new controller, at E3:

There were also some other styles, such as all black that looked cool. Some of the demo guitars had actual leather shoulder straps, which was cool.

same shape, maybe new colors

I need to pick up a guitar since my friend gave me his guitar hero game. I was thinking of getting this one but I'm not sure if I like the look of it.

that Cherry Red SG guitar has been available for a little while. it was $39.99 and was sold without game only. I have only seen it at the Sony Store in San Francisco and for a small time it was available through the Red Octane store.

I'm not sure if it is OOP (as many Ebay sellers say it is), but I haven't seen any since.
