I got my Mustang last week. The wealth of 17x6 buttons for my left hand at the neck and 6 strings for my right hand means a whole new world of coordination to learn for me after I had managed to play on standard Expert level.
It took me the last days to get fluent on pro Easy and now I am learning to play on pro Medium.
As I try to learn the real bass instrument, I tried pro mode for Pro Bass mainly so far.
Tears for Fears' song "Everybody wants to rule the World" is one of my favorite RB3 songs and it is by luck also one of the easier ones. So for this one I dared to move to hard and expert and after some training finally managed to pass the song.
This was a very rewarding musical experience!
I am sure the Squier real guitar/controller, which is scheduled for march next year in the US will be an even better choice to play pro mode, but it will cost at least twice as much and one wants to start learning right now.
The Mustang is light and not much bigger than a standard guitar controller, so it might be a bit easier to handle.
What I am not that happy with is the maintance for the strings of the Mustang. It has hard to judge the durability of the strings section of the Mustang, having it in use only for a couple of days. But if something should go wrong there it will very likley require you to let it be repaired at MadCatz customer support. It seems not made for user maintenance. Compare this to the rather uncomplicated string change on a real instrument. I hope this an indication that MadCatz believes the mechanism will need no maintenance in most cases. We will see.
Pro Keys was already a great new extension of Rock Band, but Pro Guitar and Pro Bass are what I want to master now. I enjoy it very much so far and look forward to improve my playing skills.

OK. This is *not* a real guitar, and no you're not going to get the full experience of learning to play a real guitar. But complaining about that is like complaining that a driving game isn't like driving a real car, and therefore isn't a worthwhile thing to spend time doing.

As a total beginner I really have a problem with the idea that you can buy a guitar and just start teaching yourself through DVDs, online courses, etc. And music teachers cost. The great thing with Rock Band 3 pro mode is that you actually do learn the basics of guitar playing while having fun playing a game.

The Mustang Pro also doubles up as a MIDI device, so you can try out some of the stuff you've been learning on your computer with your music software of choice.

Price is a concern for many. To me the Mustang only seems expensive when you think of it as a plastic toy. It's more than that. Of course it'd be great if it were cheaper, but £110 doesn't seem *too* bad when you think of it as a great way to learn guitar either in RB3 or as a MIDI device hooked up to your PC. That said, more experienced guitarists will likely get frustrated with the Mustang Pro. For them it'd be a waste of money compared to the fully-stringed Squier (apparently out next year). But if you're a complete beginner curious about playing guitar, I'd recommend the Mustang.

I was gifted a Fender a few years back and have a small amp but never got beyond self taught basic chords and walking a few scales from a DVD trainer. I should have got lessons to learn more but other hobbies took precedence.

This guitar, while not a full proper guitar, is still a great way to have fun and learn guitar basics at the same time. The lessons are good, if a little thin, but the best thing by far is picking a song you like and learning how to play it. The fingering is the same, bar the callouses, and the game is a little forgiving, much like my Fender with high distortion ;)

I'm not good enough to pick it up and sight read songs like I can with the game controller guitar so in Pro mode I do have to invest a lot more time to play a song through, but it is very satisfying. You can use the Mustang in simple mode and then the top 5 frets are your controller buttons but they are spaced like a real guitar so it's not as easy as using the 5 button controller. You're probably better off with the controller for just jumping in.

I have 5 other rock band/gh guitar controllers and the build quality of this is by far the best. The parts clicked together well and it is rock solid. A good looking guitar as well. Makes the others look like the toys they are (not that this isn't a toy, but it's damn close to a real guitar). The nylon strings strum accurately and are silent. One thing to note, no whammy bar, but I don't find that a biggie. There are also only 17 frets but that has had little impact so far either (and I guess will have none unless you want to use this as a full midi guitar and shred lower frets).

I also prefer having proper xbox buttons and d-pad on this guitar rather than some of the weirder configurations on other guitars.

I'll almost certainly get the Squier when it is out as well, but in the meantime this is a superb instrument and with any luck I'll be half decent by the time the stringed version is out.

With this guitar you can play all the easy songs. Chords are kinda strange but they are exactly the same as with a real guitar so this is great for learning them.

But a huge problem with this guitar are the strings. They are way to slack. As I said earlier thats fine for chords and easy Songs but when trying to strum fast your screwed. (For Example the riff in "Beast and the Harlot" or "Trough the Fire and Flames". You kinda have to manually palm mute them and it's still really hard to get to that speed.

Regardless of that I would say It's a great game for those who never touched a guitar before and want to learn playing it. For those who want to learn cool metal riffs and hard songs It's cheap tabs and I recommend just watch the song in practice mode and try to play along with a real guitar. Don't try playing them with the mustang controller.
