The Ant Commandos Announce the First 10 Fret Button Guitar Controller for Guitar Hero™ and Guitar Hero II™

Rock the Top Five Buttons in Style Then Pull in Tight to the Bottom Five Buttons for a Sizzling Solo

The patent-pending 10 fret button design allows players to crank out their favorite Guitar Hero™ and Guitar Hero II™ tunes using the top five fret buttons, then pull in tight to the base of the guitar for a rocking solo.
