Rock Band 2 Introduces Real World Instruments

Announced today from Harmonix and MTV Games, Rock Band 2 will be getting an array of musical instruments straight from the music industry's top of the line manufacturers. From guitars and basses, to the drums and mics, players (or should I say rock stars) will be able to jam to their favorite songs with a wide variety of options. Greg LoPiccolo, Vice President of Product Development at Harmonix Music Systems had this to say on the subject:

"We believe that working closely with our musical instrument partners is crucial to our mission to deliver the most authemtic music experience possible. Whether it's picking out your P Bass, finding the right finish & hardware for your drums, or choosing the best microphone for your singer's style, having real world instruments included within the world of Rock Band 2 is essential."

Here is the list of what's to come...

Guitars, Basses and Amplifiers:
  • Fender™ (Including Charvel™, Gretsch™, Jackson™, Squier™, SWR™)
  • DW
