Beatles Rock Band PS3 Guitars

Postby BluePhirePB » Tue Sep 07, 2010 4:45 pm

Anyone know where I can find these for PS3? (other than eBay)

The Collector's Edition came with Paul McCartney's Hofner bass but I haven't been able to find these anywhere.

I'm looking in Canada (Ontario) specifically.

Were they ever even released in Canada?

They were released in Canada in limited numbers and sold out quick. The only place that has them right now is eBay and rockband.com. Both of which sell for over MSRP ... especially the Gretsch.

Luckily, I managed to find a single hidden one at a Toys R Us about an hour and a bit away from where I live. The only retail Gretsh at a good price that's still available is at a Toys R Us in Vancouver some where. All Best Buy, EB, Gamestop and Sources have been cleared.

Original MSRP or under. It looks like the Gretsch was under-produced compared to Rickenbacher which now explains why the crazy prices.

Oh well, thanks anyways peeps.

You can probably get the real things for cheaper.

I wish...I'd love to own a real Gretcsh.
and a Rickenbacker bass has been on my want list since around 1991.

side note, Mark David Chapman was recently denied parole again.
if he'd killed some regular joe, he'd be out by now.
but because he shot some famous guy, he's still in the clink.
funny how that works, eh?

I'd love to own a t-shirt with a picture of Chapman on it.

No one should ever get out, unless they're kind old black men or Tim Robbins.

Is the actual guitar as rare as its Rock Band controller counterpart? lol

seems like an awful lot of time and effort put into this. it seems like you really want these things. wouldn't it be easier to pay the extra $10-15 for it online?

If it were just an extra $10-$15, I would have bought it long ago. But it's a difference of $100-$200 for it at this point.

MSRP: $99
eBay: $199 + $50 shipping OR $250 + $30 shipping
