God freakin' damn it! I pre-ordered the standalone Les Paul guitar for the Wii version og Guitar Hero III
, and they just canceled my order. The item is now listed as not being available for ordering on-line. I just got the following e-mail:

I guess the upside is that the full item is still available on-line for only $10 more. Considering that Activision actually expects us to return our defective, monaural game disc so that we won't be able to play for the game for who-knows-how-long while they correct their f*ck up, maybe paying the extra $10 is worth it so that we can still play while we await the replacement CD.
