Summary: I bought this for a gift for my husband, and wasn't aware it wouldn't fit the guitars I bought from a different seller. The seller doesn't make it very clear which guitars it will and will not fit. Since there is a 20% restock and I'd have to pay shipping to send it back - it's not worth returning. Just make sure you know it will fit the guitar you have.
Summary: Guitar Hero 5 was a very poor attempt of a music game. Apart from bringing a host of new features, it lacked the personal touch which other GH have been known for. The last band-specific GH game we played was GH Metallica, a few months before GH5, and I must say it was an outstanding piece of work, but it since then it has truly fallen downhill. I'll explain why - Everything about Van Halen is static.
