First things first. This new Les Paul guitar feels like a million bucks. You get it out of the box, snap the neck into the base (so yes, you can transport it in your backpack now) and right away it's love at first strum. The new guitar has a weight to it lacking in all the previous Guitar Hero guitars, and looks and feels much more serious. Whereas before you felt like you were holding a toy, now you're much more inclined to think of it as an axe. It performs well too, certainly leaps and bounds ahead of the first Xbox 360 guitar, which - at least if ours were anything to go by - had a tendency to register a double strum if you were a little flamboyant in your playing. Which we, obviously, were. Plus, no more pointy bits! Yay.
