Rock Band: New Rickenbacker and Gretsch guitars unveiled

Harmonix sends word that replica Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet guitars will be made available for the release of The Beatles: Rock Band, set to release on September 9th, 2009. The announcement of these standalone controllers helps kick off The Beatles: Rock Band Pre-Order Club today.

The Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet guitars were the axes of Beatles John Lennon and George Harrison. Now they can be your main wireless axe for $99.99, fitting perfectly alongside Paul’s previously announced Höfner bass controller and Ringo’s Ludwig drums. All of these controllers will be available for the Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii, and all will work with the other Rock Band titles.
