1. Where in the hell did you find that React Wireless one? it looks like the Shredder with a skin.
2. The FrontMan one is just awesome. However, it is simply a colored version of the one that will ship with GH2 for the 360. I think I'll just wait for that, if I get it at all. Its a damned good thing I am satisfied with my Freedom V, or else I would go nuts for that guitar.

Here's a second review of some of the older guitars, including the "Rock" which I haven't seen reviewed anywhere else.

Numerous individuals mistakenly trust it is technology items without perusing its reviews. People should read the product reviews before buying.
