Finally, PlayStation gamers have an all-in-one guitar controller solution for jamming out in Guitar Hero and Rock Band, with The Ant Commandos today announcing the retail release of its V-Shaped Double Range Guitar. Available now for $59.99 (or $49.99 if ordered straight from TAC) in three color choices — “Flame Red,” “Electric Blue” and “Jet Black” — the Double Range Guitar is the first-ever guitar controller to be 100% compatible with all Guitar Hero and Rock Band titles for the PS2 and PS3. The broad compatibility is clearly the main selling point, but don’t think that’s all this controller has to offer. The Double Range Guitar is also equipped with these great features:

* PowerThief Power Saving Mode – Automatically powers the controller off when the unit senses inactivity to squeeze every last drop of power out of battery packs!

* AutoSense 2.4GHz Wireless – Unlike infrared systems on other controllers that require a direct line of sight to the console, it automatically detects available single or multi-user RF channels to provide a 30 foot radius of 2.4GHz wireless connectivity!

* 360FLY Function – Special clip allow the controller to attach to belt clip with a single pivot point, which allows players to spin the controllers wildly, paying homage to flashy acrobatic visual effects made famous by ZZ Top, Cheap Trick and others! See http://www.youtube.com/theantcommandos.

* Xtended Fret Button Array – A second set of FeatherTouch fret buttons high on the neck enables players to jam like the pros by jumping to the higher set of fret buttons for world-class solos—and return to the lower set to rock out rhythm parts!

* Low Battery Indicator – When the battery is low, the Red light will blink. No more guessing!

* Patented Button Cluster – Specially designed button cluster features a recessed Start button that prevents players from accidentally pausing the game in the middle of a blistering jams!

* Super Whammy System – Finely tuned with a high density precision coil spring assembly, it provides reliable operation for many years of extreme abuse from rock ‘n’ roll animals!

* ComfortNeck – Exciting new neck dimensions and a specially designed contoured edge provides a more comfortable grip on the neck, which reduces finger fatigue even after many hours of play!

* TickleTilt Sensor – The smart TickleTilt Sensor incorporates two separate sensitive sensors so players can activate Star Power by lightly tilting the controller

* Whammy-wah food Pedal Connection – Expansion port for future connection to Whammy-Wah foot pedal for Star Power and whammy.

* PlayStation® 3 D-Pad & Home Button Support – Designed and built-in for your navigational convenient when not playing the game.
