Classic stand alone guitar controllers announced for The Beatles: Rock Band

john_lennon_rickenbacker_325-400-400Last month saw the official announcement of The Beatles: Rock Band and with it came pricing for the kit along with details on two of the four iconic instruments played by the Fab Four – Höfner Bass and a Ludwig drum kit. And today, the circle is complete with the announcement of the Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet guitar controllers. I always wanted a Rickenbacker growing up because of those damn Beatles.

Each replica guitar controller will retail for $99.99 in the US and €99.99 for continental Europe while the UK will fork over £89.99.

The Pre-Order Club just went live if you’re into that sort of thing. Apparently it gives you access to “breaking news and exclusive behind the scenes elements.” Whatever.
