Had to run out and buy a new guitar for Rock Band today. Broke my old XPlorer. The blue button had been half broke for a long time. In long sustains, it would stutter and fail, but almost never when i was just strumming along. It'd been like that for months.

Today the red and/or yellow button(s) started to fail. Ran out and got one of the GH3 Les Pauls. This is pretty slick. Frets have a shorter travel distance. Strum bar has a shorter travel distance. It's easier on my right forearm resting against it. Once i get a little more in tune with this thing, i'mna be like.....1145th or 1144th best Rock Band guitarist out there! Heck yeah!
