The official Xbox 360 Rock Band Wireless Fender Wooden Stratocaster Replica is a work of art as much as it is a gaming tribute. It's every-bit as beautiful as the real thing. It is the REAL thing sans strings replaced by buttons and a strum bar. Every positive thing you'll read in these user reviews is true. Unfortunately, it does have some defects. While I haven't had any issue with buttons jamming or the start and back knobs getting in the way of the whammy bar, the whammy bar itself is just too damn loose - a particular problem with "real" stratocasters. Gravity will always pull the whammy bar down and out of reach unless it's cradled under your hand while strumming. Obviously, this isn't a deal-breaker, but it makes using the unattended whammy bar nearly impossible on hard and expert because you have take your hand away from the strummer to grab it. If it weren't for this glaring flaw, I'd have given this five stars easily.
