Anyone who thinks using the standard Rock Band bass isn’t authentic enough ::cough:: should check out what Mad Catz is offering. They just started shipping the Fender Precision Bass for the Xbox 360. The bass, which will also work with the game’s upcoming sequel, Rock Band 2: Laughing Out Loud, lacks a whammy bar, just like the real bass. Instead, gamers get to fiddle with the volume knob to get the whammy effect.
So, despite what Amazon says, she’s shipping today.
