POWER TOUR Electric Guitar – For Those About To Learn To Rock We Salute You

By Andrew Liszewski

Riding on the popularity of the Guitar Hero game comes the POWER TOUR Electric Guitar from Tiger Electronics (Hasbro). While the game is meant as a loose guitar simulation for players of all ages the POWER TOUR is actually aimed at teaching the younger set the basics of playing the instrument.

The neck of the guitar lights up where your fingers should be placed while you learn to play six different rock classics including Wild Thing and Smoke On The Water. A strum sensor replaces the need for strings or a pick and you can even connect the guitar to your MP3 player and play along with whatever songs you’ve downloaded legally purchased. What’s particularly cool is that the POWER TOUR guitar is designed to look like an actual Gibson SG electric guitar and even has the Gibson branding on the headstock.

The POWER TOUR Electric Guitar is available in a white or black finish for $69.99 and if the instrument’s built in speaker isn’t annoying enough for you there’s even a POWER TOUR Amp you can buy ($49.99) complete with a volume dial that goes to 11.
