Beatles Guitars to Launch with Beatles Rock Band

So here they are, the much rumored special edition Beatles’ Rock Band controllers, the Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet, in all their glory.

As Kotaku points out the Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet are a pair of full-bodied, classic guitars used extensively by John Lennon and George Harrison throughout their careers. Both will be available once the Beatles version of Rock Band hits shelves in September. You’re looking at just shy of a hundred bucks extra each.

Anyone actually going to fork out hard earned green for one (or both) of these? We can deal with LEGO Rock Band because it promises to deliver completely G rated songs making for a more child-friendly themed version of the game but these guitars just seem pointless.
