Rock Band Höfner guitar

MTV Games, Harmonix and EA have recently announced yet another special edition controller for the upcoming The Beatles: Rock Band Limited Edition Premium Bundle game title for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii gaming consoles. In addition to the previously seen Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo-Jet guitars, there will also be a replica Höfner bass guitar controller on offer. Formerly used by Sir Paul McCartney, the bass controller will be a replica of the classic guitar meant for right-handed players, unlike Paul McCartney's preference for the left.

As with the other controllers, the Höfner will be available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii consoles and be compatible with all titles in the Rock Band franchise. While pricing has not been announced, the Höfner should be priced at the same $100 as the other controllers when all are launched along with the game on September 9th. The game and controllers can now be pre-ordered but haven't yet shown at major online gaming stores.
