Posted by Aaron on Monday, April 9, 2007

Looks like some Guitar Hero 2 Guitars for the Xbox 360 are defective. If you have the following Guitar with the model number 95065 or 95055 Red Octane says to return it where you bought it from for an exchange or if you bought it online from Red Octane you can fill out a warrany claim here.

Red Octane has issued the following statement on their website:

We have been informed of a possible calibration issue with Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360’s whammy bar. We believe this may stem from a feature put in place to ensure accurate scoring. Guitar Hero II features a complex control scheme that requires precise calibration between the game and the guitar. We are currently investigating the situation further; however, if you are experiencing these issues, we recommend that you try the following steps:

1. Turn off the power to your game console
2. Make sure the whammy bar is moved away from the body of the guitar and not depressed
3. Make sure the guitar is securely connected to your console
4. Then turn the console’s power back on
5. Load the Guitar Hero II game and begin playing
