In their March 2011 issue, Guitar Player puts the new Squier by Fender Stratocaster Guitar and Controller through the paces.
The review includes the usual spec run-through, as well as a deep dive into the Strat as a guitar, Rock Band 3 game controller and tutorial device.
“No game can take the place of studying with a real teacher or jamming with real musicians—nor should it— but this is a brilliant complement to those pursuits,” writes GP tester Matt Blackett.
“For any of us who have wanted a way to marry Rock Band and rock bands, this is absolutely what we’ve been waiting for. Kudos to Fender for connecting these heretofore segregated worlds.”
Pick up the March issue and flip to page 108 for the start of the review.
