If you want to rock, first you have to pay your dues. To Best Buy.

Last week, Best Buy announced that it would be exclusively selling the Rock Band 3 Squier Stratocaster before the peripheral's previously announced March release date. Now, according to the retailer, it'll be the only place to go for the $280 guitar after that, as well. In a brief statement received by Joystiq today, Best Buy said that it would be "the exclusive retailer of the Rock Band 3 Squier when it goes on sale in stores on March 1."

Pre-orders for the instrument (which requires the MIDI PRO-Adapter for use with the game) will be offered beginning tomorrow, December 15, both in-store and on BestBuy.com.
