Talismoon, purveyor of replacement Wii shells, has announced a new guitar controller for Wii, the "Rock Thunder Guitar." Normally, a guitar controller from some random third-party wouldn't be terribly noteworthy, but the Rock Thunder Guitar has two features that distinguish it from its peers:
- It is compatible with all versions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band on the Wii, and
- It is shaped like a Gibson Flying V, which is awesome.
The wireless guitar also features a sleep mode, as well as its own motion sensor, probably for use in Rock Band
(which doesn't require a WIimote to be attached to the guitar). Now, as for features like "the buttons all work" and "won't fall apart" -- the product description does not specify.
