53 and still rockin' and rollin'
I broke down and bought a Squier last night because of all of this news. The pro mode is awesome! It is the first time I ever played guitar and am having a blast with it. This cannot go away, it's just to damn educational.
It's only oversaturation if you have to switch discs.

It'd be a shame if they completely discontinued this type of guitar, its a brilliant invention, that makes learning songs easier and more fun. I think it is absolutely worth $300, and am confused about fender stopping production on such an innovative device that is still in demand around the globe.
The world had 3 months to learn about and experience this invention, and that's it?? really?
That's not really giving it a chance is it.
Buying a guitar is not really an impulse purchase, you have to wanna learn to play, its a bit of an investment and for what Rockband offers 300 isn't much at all. It may not be the best sounding, but for what it does in game, its exactly what I always wanted right when I heard about guitar hero.
I'm a bit disappointed HMX doesn't even know what's going on with Fender, as they are telling customers sorry and refunding money.
Its what rockband has been building to all these years, and I just don't understand why fender would pull the plug so soon on a product that works so well and is groundbreaking...
Hope to hear from HMX Henry or Alex or someone soon.
I'm not knocking the Squier--knowing full well its limitations and the problems some people have had with it, I just bought one. But there are many quite significantly cheaper instruments that are superior guitars.

This is very disappointing.
I was alarmingly interested in buying this guitar, not only for Rock Band, but because I'm also an avid sound designer and would've loved the MIDI aspect if it could work with programs such as Ableton and ProTools.
I placed an order two or so months back, I hope it will be filled...
