PS. The strings are about 8 quid on ebay.....you can get Ernie Ball Slinkys for a fiver or less!
Only maker I could find selling colour coated strings, that matched rocksmith's colouring system : 1st string purple, 2nd string green, 3rd string orange etc was Dr neon. I would appreciate a link to the same coloured strings, as I was talking about, for a fiver or less, as I could do with a couple of new sets.
Why the hell do you want coloured strings? Learn to play the right way!
Sometimes when children (possibly adults too) are learning to play the piano they'll have the notes printed on the keys ... this doesn't mean they're not learning to "play the right way", it's just an aid in learning!
It may even help to avoid that frustration (cited on here numerous time) that can cause people to lose interest quickly.
But unless your looking in a mirror how you gonna see the strings? Playing guitar is more about practising and memory. After a short while you wont even need to look at the strings let alone what colour they are. Like I said HUKD's is a crazzie place! :D
Errr maybe just because they LOOK NICE FOR CHILDREN!!?!?
You can shout all you like but anyone who has just a small amount of knowledge about guitars will tell you this is a complete waste of money. On the one hand it will probably put off any budding guitarist when it comes to playing it properly like full barre chords or soloing. Secondly you will find if the guitarist are any good they'll wont to upgrade to something decent very quickly. Money for this which could of been spent better.
As has been pointed out not just by me get on gumtree and pick up a good in-expensive 'quality' starter guitar for probably less than this costs!

After a while, you don't look at the keys on a piano either (much the same as people type without looking at the keyboard), but I would expect that you'd look at the guitar strings initially to be sure of your finger placement

Yeah I agree... the game/training aid (whatever you want to call it). Is really good and great way I think to learn the basics in a way that is fun and not frustrating, that said I have tried to play and I struggle to coordinate each of my fingers on the strings, so instead slide with one finger..... I don't think I'll ever make it as a guitar player.

My daughter however is making great progress... sure she is only perhaps playing two notes at a time either perhaps one second gaps between them but she's making good progress and enjoying it.

As far as the guitar is concerned the game often requires you to retune it for different songs, but it seems to stay in tune quite happily otherwise. The guitar has two "tone" knobs and as far as my ear is concerned I can't really tell any difference in the apparent sound. I don't know if this should be more apparent when you twist either of them or if the game itself controlling the sound that is output?? There is also a small lever that has maybe 5 positions, this seems to distort the sound more, the whammy bar..... erm.... whams?

My daughter got her guitar and she is over the moon with it... equally the game (I haven't seen it yet, seems to be helping her to some degree).

The guitar appears to be decent enough quality to me. especially the wooden parts which appear to be finished very nicely. if anyone wants any better pictures let me know.

Saw a fantastic design the other day was a three quarter size acoustic guitar with Beano print all over it, looked brilliant. Otoh why do ppl modify their cars? Because it's a bit of fun and makes it different.
