But in a really cool way. This plastic bass is for either guitar hero or rock band. Either way I dig it. The description below is from Gizmodo.
"The wired bass guitar is $69 and will have a dual strummer (like a real bass) so you can do two-fingered strumming. Sweet. There's also a thumb rest, volume knob for whammy, oversized tuning keys and a more bass-like feel."
Pretty soon they are going to have to start putting stings on these things, and then who knows, they might make the people actually play the instrument to win the game.
I have to say thought that a bass like this for the game makes me pretty excited.
