Fender to provide Rock Band Guitar
EA and Harmonix have anounced that one of the world’s leading guitar manufacturers, Fender, will be providing the Guitar peripheral, based on the legendary Fender Stratocaster, for the forthcoming 360 and PS3 title Rock Band. Not only that, Fender guitars, basses and amps be featured in-game. Roland and BOSS will also feature, but only in-game it seems.
Bill Mendello, CEO of Fender Musical Instruments Corporation said:
“Fender is pleased to be part of Rock Band and the exciting opportunity it offers passionate music fans and gamers. Our friends at Harmonix have done an amazing job of capturing the power and style of legendary Fender products within the virtual gaming experience and delivering it all in the spirit of rock ‘n’ roll”.
Rock Band is due out later this year.
