New Guitar Hero game, new Guitar Hero guitar. That's the way the world works. With Guitar Hero 5 almost upon us, let's take a look at it's new guitar, see if it's worth upgrading.
The changes are minimal. Aside from a cosmetic facelift, the only major difference comes in a tweak to the slider, which will now send purely digital signals to the game rather than analogue ones.

Slight improvements have also been made to the guitar's reliability, with the controller featuring a new, sturdier strum bar.
