Peavey releases Guitar Hero controller

When you think of Peavey guitars, you probably don’t think about the popular Guitar Hero video game, but the Peavey AG RiffMaster may change that.

Peavey has released a new line of Guitar Hero controllers made from a life-sized Peavey guitar. These are real wood guitars that have been modified to play the video game.

The guitar neck features the familiar five-colored Guitar Hero fret buttons placed among real frets on a rosewood fretboard. Of course the guitar also comes with the required strum bar and whammy bar mounted to the basswood body.

Here’s the really cool part — consumers can create custom graphics for the controllers and design their own guitars. If you don’t want to design your own graphic model, you can choose from a bank of 20 custom designs, including exclusive artist designs from rock artists such as KISS, Pantera, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Ozzy Osbourne and Megadeth.

Custom painted controllers are priced at $399. More information on pricing and custom models are available from from Peavey’s Web site.
