Summary: Had to tear guitar apart and clean what appeared to be chocolate off of the computer chip that the buttons are connected to, because one button was registering the one next to it.. Thought the add had said "tested" and all buttons worked...
Summary: I purchased this from auction and wish I would have just bought it new. The stand to the drums was missing, so I had to build one out of PVC piping costing me time and money. The guitar's whammy bar was broken (always on) so that sucks. The game is OK.
Summary: I ordered a PS3 Les Paul wireless guitar hero controller on July 24th 2012. I ended up receiving two xbox 360 controllers and a game about two weeks after my purchase. I sent a nasty-gram to amazon.com about my incorrect order. They were kind about the misunderstanding and had UPS pick up the incorrect order from my house. I then received an email asking for a review of my order.
Summary: I bought one of these thinking I could save a few bucks and still have the same quality that came with the original Guitar Hero Gibson SG facsimile guitar. Well, I was half right. I saved a few bucks. A few wasted bucks. Want my advice? Go the route and get the official Fender Stratocaster controller made specifically for the PS3. It costs a little more, but you won't feel as if you've wasted your hard-earned money. You won't regret it in the long run.
Summary: I have had this for a few months now... this guitar is just not built to last. This is my 2nd ps3 guitar to start having trouble with reception, the buttons stop working and ruin the game-play. I think that they purposely sell this in two pieces so the connector pieces will eventually break down. I had the slash guitar before this, same problem.
Summary: I have purchased this guitar and it arrived fast. But the blue button was not working, and shortly after the yellow one didn't as well. Thank God Amazon has an awesome return policy but the guitar is total crap! You can buy standard guitar hero controller or purchase one that is not wireless.
Summary: Got this back in Nov 08 and it's unplayable after 6 months of 2x/week play by my girlfriend who plays bass on medium. In contrast I play the offical GHWT guitar on hard and it still plays great. The strum doesn't register all the time so it misses about 5-10% of the notes. When she plays on the official guitar she does 5-10% better (as do I). It's also smaller and flimsier than the GHWT guitar.
Wireless Les Paul for PS3 does not work with Guitar Hero 1, 2 or Rocks the 80s when played on PS3
3 March 2010
Summary: The PS3 Les Paul Wireless controller for Guitar Hero 3 DOES NOT WORK for any of the PS2 Guitar Hero games when played on a PS3 (i.e. - Guitar Hero 1, 2 or Rocks the 80's). In other words - you cannot play GH1, 2 or rocks the 80's on the PS3 with the PS3 wireless Les Paul controller. There is no news of a software/firmware update for PS3 that will remedy this or of porting GH1, GH2 or rocks the 80s to the PS3 so they will work properly on the PS3.
