The Beatles: Rock Band Site Slowly Fills With Instruments

The teaser site for The Beatles: Rock Band is slowly filling with the band's signature instruments, perhaps giving us a hint at what's coming in the game's US$250 premium bundle.

As I understand it, the Ludwig drum set favoured by Ringo was already up there, and has recently been joined by the Epiphone Casino, the guitar The Beatles made famous, which has been used by George, Paul, and John at some point during the band's history. Could this be a hint at what comes packed in the extremely expensive premium box set? Could I have been right in my suggestion that the Casino be included with the package to complete the Beatles experience? I suppose there's a first time for everything.

I suppose that at the very least it tells us that the classic instruments will at least figure into the game somehow, because otherwise they wouldn't be popping up on that there web page.

    The guitar is not an Epiphone Casino, but George's Gretsch Country Gentleman.

    Yeah... you'd think John's Rickenbacker 325 would be a no brainer for the game. If that were the case then a Casino would be the wrong era.

    I figure the other two instruments would be the 325 and Paul's Hofner. Classic line up of Beatle instruments if you include the Country Gent and Ringo's Ludwig set.

    You do of course realise that if you turn the release date on it's head, it becomes 666...the number of the beast..!!!!!

    Can't wait to see Paul's Hofner on it's stand!

    That is a Gretsch, should have George's Rick 12 ,string also Paul's Rick bass for later years.

    Sorry Scoogs, that's not George's Country Gent, it's his Gretsch Tennessean - single cutaway. His Gent was black and has double cutaway. d:)

    Sorry Dean but that Gretsch is a country gent - if you look more closely it's a double cutaway. There's certainly no doubt that it's not a Casino tho! :o)

    Did anyone notice that the Hofner appeared on the Beatles Official site last week, but at the same time not at the Beatles Rock Band site.. It disappeared again later, so I guess it was a mistake and they put it on too soon. But when the Hofner comes back on it will be leaned against the sofa! ;D Can't wait!
