> guitar will retail for $49.99 in late April and will be available in
> flame red, electric blue and jet black. The Double Range Guitar
> controller allows players to act out their rock star fantasies with
> its 2.4GHz wireless technology which doesn't require a direct line of
> infrared sight to the console. Providing gamers the freedom to thrash
> around up to 30 feet away from the console, players will also

> pending Xtended Fret Button Array which enables players to jam like
> their musical idols by jumping to the lower set of fret buttons for
> world-class solos, and then using the higher set for rhythm parts. The
> Double Range's lower 5 buttons are 100% compatible with Rock Band's
> Solo Guitar play and it offers a 5-way switch to support the sound
> effect feature in Rock Band. In addition, players will love the

> PlayStation 3, the Widow Maker is the most advanced controller on the
> market, featuring AutoSense wireless technology using 2.4GHz
> connectivity and offering a larger and longer body design that mimics
> a real Bass guitar. The Widow Maker features the new BigBoy Strum
> Bar which makes for a wider and tighter strumming zone, and players
> can be ready for fast action with the FeatherTouch Fret Buttons which
> are undercoated with new rubber cushions, designed to activate at the
> slightest touch. For special features that every guitar fan will
> love, the Widow Maker features a special button cluster that has a
> recessed pause button so players do not accidentally pause during a
> jam session. With its
> 4-in-1 compatibility, players can be assured that their investment is a
> good one, even if they upgrade to another system-because their guitar
> will work with all PS2 and PS3 versions of the games.
