The Guitar Hero World Tour controller is the first guitar shaped controller packaged with a Guitar Hero game to not be an imitation of an actual guitar. This is the result of a lawsuit from Gibson Guitars. It is also unique in that it is the first controller to feature a slide bar.
This controller is the most realistic looking one in the series so far. Halfway up the neck, the slide bar is visible. Like most of its predecessors, the buttons are rounded off. One of the only cons is that the strumbar breaks very easy. The buttons are good, though.
