My Les Paul just broke and I need a new one so I was wondering what your favorite guitar is.

I have to go with the Les Paul even though the Down Strum stopped working the day I got Rock Band :( so gone back to Xplorer which is also a great guitar! :D

Les Paul for me. Though my first one was broken out of the box. I don't like the feel of the Xplorer at all and the tiny select button can make SP activation tricky. As much as I will defend Rock Band, it's hard to defend the Strat. It's just not that great. :/

I agree, the Explorer is the best of them all but it needs a bigger Select button for SP

I voted other cause I want a guitar with a part from each guitar combined. I want a guitar with the Les Pauls frame, back, and start buttons, the Xplorers square frets and strum bar, and the Strats solo button.

Sounds like a good guitar to me :D

Out of the current guitars, I have to go with the Les Paul.

I chose the x-plorer just 'cause I always seemed more comfortable playing with it.. even though it's broken now.

I went with the Strat, since that's what I got. I don't have a problem with it, except that it activates star power on it's own, which is a blessing and a curse.

My son swears by the Explorer but I have to go with the Les Paul. My wonderful boyfriend got the GH:A bundle last week and gave me the Les Paul (he has his own) ... I am convinced that I have found my soul mate. Playing GH and RB with this guitar is a pleasure, and I can actually do HOs and POs, something that eluded me until now.

I'm gonna have to try out the fender strat before I make my decision. I play mostly rock band so it makes most sence. Is it compatible with guitar hero though.

Nope, not compatible. That's another reason why it'll probably be more worth your while to get a Les Paul or Explorer.

The GH3 Les Paul any day!!!

Ive tried the RB Strat and its one of the worst console peripherals ive ever used :mad:

I have both the LesPaul and the Srat ... the LesPaul (a personal favorite when it comes to the real thing over stratocasters any day) is a flimsy piesce of crap, and I think it feels like this becasue of the detachable neck, however on top of that ... the length of the fret board/neck is SO short that I can't help but think it was designed with malibu barbie in mind?

Now, that RB Strat is a sweet a$$ guitar for a video game, the neck is longer and thus is that much closer to feeling like it was actually modeled around that actual instrument. The neck width is also not as thick as a brick like the LesPaul.

The strummer on these guitars ... I'm on the fence with both of them, I probably favor only slightly the Strat strummer over the LesPaul, but like I said it's a toss up.

Overall, I'd rate the LesPaul a 5/10 and the Strat 8.5/10 .... party on RockBand ... you too Wayne!

PS2 SG all the way. The 360 Les Paul can be good, too.

The Rock Band one... Stratocaster I believe.

It's much easier for a newbie to use that one than any of the other guitars, and just playing the solo without strumming is awsome :D

just my personal opinion but i disgagree. Its easier to learn when u hear the click imho. the stat is awful even for advanced guitarist. i really like mikes idea for a guitar. mike u have a good idea now u market it and find someone ot make it, i predict u make millions

personally i prefer the RB guitar, no clicking, the frets feel nicer, its a better shape (thinner and longer neck) although it is terribly made.

I hope the "new and improved" Fender Strat in RB2 is better than the RB1 version. Hopefully we'll hear some hands-on impressions and reviews from E3, starting tomorrow.

The GH3 guitar.

I like the RB, but I just hate the strumming thing. It's annoying to strum and it doesn't make like a click to show the strum worked like the GH3 guitar does.

I like the solo notes though.
