This controller is a great addition to the Rock Band games! My husband had been wanting it for a long time, and I finally decided to purchase it. I couldn't be more pleased and it is worth every penny!
Upon opening the box, I was very impressed with the appearance. The body is decent size and the neck is very long, which makes it look and feel real. When compared to the small Guitar Hero controllers, it is almost twice the size.
Getting used to the double strum bar takes some time and was a bit frustrating at first, but if you enjoy playing bass on the game, it presents a new challenge. Once you get the hang of the new finger coordination, it makes bass playing easier. It keeps your fingers from getting tired as quickly. It also helps you achieve those game challenges that require bass playing with "all up-strums."
The only complaint I have, and it's minor, is that this bass lacks a whammy bar, which has been replaced with a nob. It's not as easy as the bar, and is difficult to reach in a hurry.
Overall, this was a great purchase and I recommend it to all avid Rock Band fans!
