    D'Oh! And I've just bought myself a real one. It's got six wires on it and a cable that goes to the amp. How do these wireless ones work then?

    :D

    Pfft! no point in wireless connecions to amps!

    all you do is kill sound quality, and being as you're gonna have the sound coming from the amp anyway you aint really going to want to be that far away from it. looks like junk to me.

    Big bass guitar, Big cable (its pink cause im using me mum's old one after my old one got broken after a dog chewed through it) and a big, big amp. yummy.

    I certainly don't have one lol. Its more for for live proformances, big ones at that, I know from live dvd's the big bands like pink floyd and genesis use them but no, not really praticle for pratising when they cost £150 lol. You did ask how a wireless amp worked lol.

    A lot of bands use wireless guitar to amp connections. It saves on tripping over the wires and lets you dance around like a drugged up Bez (yeah, I know...) without worrying about getting caught in the wires. I believe that a lot of the equipment these days provide very little loss in quality. I'm considering getting one myself, they may cost a lot but they certainly save on hardwired cables which I go through like Cadbury's Creme Eggs.

    Its been a while since I've seen a thread go this much OT on here for a while.

    Just to clarify its for the Rock Band and GH3 wireless guitars not a real guitar. Only saying this as some people might be reading this thinking you can connect a real one.

    Two questions

    Is the Rock band guitar wireless like the GHIII one?

    Are the controls similar enough to use the GHIII Controller on rock band, should the Rock band controller be wired?

    The GH2 Guitar works on both games and the GH3 one with RB but the GH2 and GH3 controllers will not be compatible with some of the features on RB firstly the RB Start has got 5 extra buttons at the bottom of the fret board unlike the GH ones. Also the pick up selector on the RB one chooses different effects again the GH one has no pick up selector. There might be other differences but I can't remember them as its late.

    Pics of RB Fender Strat:

    Pics of GH3 Gibson Les Paul:
    http://www.gamegrep.com/news/2159-guitar_hero_iiis_les_paul_controller/

    I think you can guess which one is better. But I must say the track lists for both are good RB is slightly better as you can play drums on the songs. Up side they both have different Metallica songs but again RB has the edge as it will have DLC every week and they will be FULL albums strting with THe Who's album followed by Metallica.

    Edit:
    Both controllers will be wireless, but I think some of GH3 will be shipped with wired but dont qoute me on that.

    GH3 will be about the same price as GH2 or cheaper if you don't get the guitar and use the GH2 one.

    RB is going to come in all together with guitar, mic and drum kit for around the same price as GH2 but I think it will be nearer £100

    So is rock band the one to go for with all that? Played guitar hero in game and while I was rubbish it was good fun. Also with rock band you can you play over live?

    You can play both RB and GH3 over live. RB is better because its got harmonix the original makers of GH and EA behind it and you can play as a band over live. GH has got Neversoft and Activision behind them aswell as Red octain who was on the origanl GH's.

    Really its six of one and half a dozen of the other atm.


    I might start a GH3/RB thread, what do you think as this has thread has gone a bit OT and there seems to be some interest???

    have to say, even though the GH3 controller has les functions i prefer it to the RB one.

    I mean, Fender Stratocaster or Gibson Les paul?

    Rock band is siding with Fender, GH3 with Gibson

    Let me show you the difference in successful models from both companies:

    As a guitar I prefer the strat becouse you can get more sound, different sounds out of it than a les paul. Well I suppose i've never played a proper les paul and im usless on guitar but dosn't matter. If you look at what the guiatists from bands use, there more out ragous guitarist tent to use the gibson (Jimmy page ct.) where as your more prosission guitarists tend to use the strat (David Gilmour). Of course there is some mix over but becouse I prefer the look for the strat and I also think the Guitar hero one dosn't look anything like it, the fender does.
