Good news for fake rock stars: Harmonix and MTV have announced the imminent release of Rock Band standalone instruments. And the guitar is wireless. Finally, a bass player!

The Rock Band drum set will ship on Feb. 12, for $79.99. The wireless Stratocaster guitar will ship April 1 and will cost $59.99. The PlayStation version of the game will be playable on both the PS2 and the PS3. Also on tap: A game-only version, so players can build their band ala carte.

The release of standalone instruments allows Rock Band musicians to enjoy the full Rock Band experience, including drum, microphone and guitar head-to-head modes, creating a whole new level of competitive fun," said Alex Rigopulos, CEO and co-founder, Harmonix. "We’re also delivering a stand-alone wireless guitar solution for all versions of Rock Band as well as providing the opportunity for consumers to build their band one instrument at a time."

The announcement did not detail the price or date for a standalone Rock Band-branded USB microphone.
