Great Value Guitar Package With The Rocksmith Authentic Guitar Game

Rocksmith developers, Ubisoft, present the first and only game where the controller is a real electric guitar. Nothing plastic, nothing childlike, just the most authentic guitar experience in music gaming. Gear4music presents budding guitarists with a great value guitar package with the Rocksmith authentic guitar game.

By plugging the Houston Electric Guitar into your PS3™ console, you'll develop real skills in real styles while playing real music. Featuring gameplay that will automatically adjust to your personal skill level and a unique and innovative game design that will make playing great guitar music visually intuitive, Rocksmith will even engage experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar before in their life.

Rocksmith also offers you the chance to download new songs from The Playstation Store™. With an ever expanding library of songs Rocksmith truly is the future of guitar games.

With Rocksmith on PS3™ you'll unlock various fun mini-games that will hone specific guitar playing skills. You'll also be able to choose from a large number of songs (See Below) in different styles. Experience it all with this Gear4music Houston Electric Guitar.

Get Plugged In

Rocksmith includes a unique quarter-inch to USB cable that is the first of its kind and allows users to plug in the Metal V with a quarter-inch jack directly into your PS3™. Developed exclusively for Rocksmith, this 11.25 cable turns the guitar's signal from analog to digital, allowing it to be recognised and played through your games console for the first time.

Masses Of Effects Pedals, Amps & Cabs

Turn your Playstation 3™ into an electric guitar amplifier and play with a huge number of in-game effects pedals, amplifiers and cabinets. You can string pedals together with a nearly infinite number of combinations and you'll be able to tweak your sound until you're satisfied. Whether it's a crunchy distortion, a vintage tremolo, or a psychedelic reverb Rocksmith has it covered to make sure you can achieve the sound you're looking for.

Play Songs Instead Of Just Learning Them

Do you want to play new songs but don't want the laborious task of going through tablature or cringing through poorly produced videos? No problem, Rocksmith will not only present you with new songs, but will also challenge you to step away from the notes on screen and play songs by memory.

The Houston Electric Guitar By Gear4music

Lightweight & Comfortable

The slim profile maple neck makes for great playability while the slightly shorter scale length makes string bending a breeze. The body is made of paulownia wood; a particularly lightweight wood that helps our guitars provide full tone whilst remaining surprisingly lightweight and comfortable.

Full Tone

Dual open coil high output humbucking pickups provide a full tone, and respond to the distortion you need for modern rock and metal without becoming muffled or mushy - providing the sound you want as well as the look.

Press Reviews

"Gear4music pride themselves on the fact that their instruments are made to decent, playable standards. We'd go one further and say they've pulled off something spectacular: great looking and sounding instruments that feel as if they'll keep these qualities until you're ready to upgrade."
