Logitech launches real wood guitar at virtual-axe Heroes

Guitar Hero here we come...

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Logitech has shat all over those plastic Guitar Hero frets with the launch of a gaming axe that looks and handles like the real thing - because most of it actually is.

Logitech's Wireless Guitar Controller

The Logitech Wireless Guitar Controller’s body is solid, thanks to its real wood neck and rosewood fingerboard. The frets - which don’t “clickety-clack” - and peg handles are constructed from metal, and the strum bar’s supposedly “quiet as a whisper”.

2.4GHz connectivity

But the guitar’s got one feature that even Jimi Hendrix’s planks didn’t have: 2.4GHz wireless compatibility, allowing it to connect into your PlayStation 2 or 3 for virtual Guitar Hero strumming. It has a wireless range of up to 30 feet.

The guitar runs on two AA batteries, comes with a strap and is compatible all Guitar Hero games on the PS3 and Guitar Hero World Tour on the PS2.

Logitech’s Wireless Guitar Controller will be available later this month, priced at around £150 ($250/€200).
