The Rock Band 3-enabled Fender Squier guitar that we've heard about has been dated and priced. You'll be able to rock out with the device beginning on March 1, 2011, and it will set you back $279.00. Pre-orders begin on January 1.
Before you balk at the price, consider that the device is an actual, full-size, 22-fret, maple-necked Fender electric guitar that can play Rock Band 3's pro guitar mode as well as playing through an amp, and that price is comparable to a regular Fender electric that doesn't play a video game. In other words: This isn't a toy. It's a legit musical instrument you can use to control a toy. You can even plug it into both an amp and Rock Band 3.

I'm saving up my dollars to pick up one of these babies. What about you? Are you planning to pick up a Squier when these hit the streets?
