Guitar Hero: World Tour's new axe spotted in trailer

Those guitar controllers in the Guitar Hero: World Tour debut trailer? They're not GH3's wireless Gibson Les Pauls. Upon closer peep-age of the footage, the new controller doesn't bear a likeness to any current Gibson design, nor anything to come out of Fender's axe factory. More than likely, it's an in-house design, what with Gibson's lawsuit against Activision and all. Two color schemes – black and cherry – are also shown, implying the return of custom face guitar-plates. We're checking with Activision on more details, as well as specs (wireless?) for its much ballyhooed drum kit.
