Wireless Gibson Les Paul Controller

There are 2 different design of wireless guitar for certain console, controllers shaped like a Gibson Les Paul (PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360) and Kramer (PlayStation 2) models were also confirmed.

On the other hand, I tried a third party guitar, which is Guitar Mania Controller by Topway for the Playstation 2 on Guitar Hero II. Surprisingly, its almost as good as the original controller. Just that, the size is smaller than I thought. But the size doesn't really matter all all, the grip is good and its nice to hold. It's cheap, so those who are reconsider to get 1 or replace 1. You can get it at Play-Asia for USD34.90.
