Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock was unveiled last week, the sixth main installment in the Guitar Hero franchise that features over 90(!) songs. Gizmodo got its hands on the game’s new controller, which has some pretty big differences from its previous iterations. The biggest change is an internal one — all the inner wiring and electronics have been moved to the guitar’s neck, allowing the guitar body to become purely an aesthetic choice. This allows greater amounts of customization, something Activision has lots of plans for. Hopefully they won’t throw this design out the window in one year, though, with the release of the inevitable Guitar Hero 7.

The Warriors of Rock guitar will be available with the launch of the game this fall.
