Hope you like shopping at Best Buy.  IF you want the real Squier Stratocaster for Rock Band 3 Pro-mode you’re gonna have to pay up to your local Best Buy overlord.  In a press release obtained by Joystiq the retailer confirms that it will be the exclusive seller of the peripheral when it goes on sale in March. Pre-ordering is available now.  If you have sworn off Best Buy for any reason you can always buy a MIDI guitar and use the midi adapter that is available at all retailers on December 26th.

FYI according to that release you have to use the MIDI adapter to use this guitar, which completely sucks. I was expecting it to have the controls for the different systems built in. If that is not the case I would not bother buying the Official guitar and just get the cheapest MIDI guitar you can find.
