Well, theres many options

Rock Band Guitar - Certainly a decent guitar but theres a few versions that were redone with the same model just different mechanics.

Guitar Hero Guitar -
GH2 - Xplorer - My favorite old school guitar, it works even still after being made many years ago, I use it mainly for Rock Band 3 since I dont own a Rock Band guitar but I dont think I would use a different guitar since this one stands the test of time.
GH3 - Les Paul - a great guitar, strumming holds up great & a damn good guitar for fretting in my opinion.
GHWT - Les Paul - decent guitar, on the large side, but a decent guitar in general.
GHWoR - weird axe guitar - a strange design for sure, I had this guitar & it broke within a couple weeks almost 2 months after Christmas.
BeatlesRB - vintage guitars - great looking but never used it before.

My preferred guitar is the GH5 guitar, which is basically the same one as GHWT. The strumming bar is large and you can grip it much easier than the GH2/3 guitars, which is the big deciding factor for me.

I also use the World Tour controller.  I have three of them and after I replaced the switches inside that caused the strumming issue, they've been great.

I love the beatles guitar, because with how i strum it's very hard to hit select since it's so close to the bar on other guitars but with the beatles one i can just easily tap it with my pinky

Put the strum bar and lower fret buttons from the WOR into a Hofner and add about two pounds of weight and a long leather shoulder strap... that would be the guitar I could use forever.

I use the telecaster

ever since all 3 of my Xplorers broke. I have a Hoffner Bass. It's too long, and only strums one way. 71FRPJ3By-L._AC_.jpg

Me and the wife have blown thru several guitar controllers and I've had to repair in some way or other every one of all these different guitar configurations. On the advice of the one and only Spindoctor, I frequently scour several Goodwill stores in our area looking for controllers to cannibalize for parts on the cheap. The only one that has ever evaded an organ donor transplant or my trusty soldering iron...and is still my favorite axe of choice to play....GHWT.

If I appear to be a little "off center", pay it no mind.

It's just the nogrognophobia kicking in.................

I have this morbid, unreasonable fear that the rum's run dry! :D

I do best with an X-Plorer in RB3. In RB4 that's not an option, so Les Paul, although they seem to frequently break and need to be replaced and are expensive...
