All you grumps unable to appreciate the pleasures provided by plastic instruments coupled to a gaming console were undoubtedly thrilled when we told you about the Guitar Wizard (because Heroes are zeros, right?). We stopped by at CES and, while they weren't going to let us shred on their setup (which is a good thing, unless their faces were meltproof), we did snag some pics and video along with some more details on the product. It's shipping sometime in August or this Fall for about $150 for the MIDI controller and software package, or $300 for the whole package which includes a real Washburn guitar.
