Guitar fire hazard

Guitar fire hazard

Up to 57,000 Rage Wireless Guitars for Wii are being recalled, thanks to a manufacturing error which caused burn injuries to one unfortunate player.

Made in China, the guitars have a defective circuit board, making it possible for battery acid to leak out and cause mayhem.

If you own one of these things you're advised to take it back to the retailer for a full refund. Also if you have a Wii Zapper from China, hand it in to the police immediately.

Wow. This would make my day if this happened after you completed "Through The Fire and Flames" on Expert perfectly.

Is the Wii zapper thingy a joke?! Because I have one of those.

Kind of reminds me of that incident with the original xbroke. Microsoft got what was coming.

Acid, Fire, Mayhem? What are you talking about? That sounds like a rock concert to me. The Rage guitar is the most authentic guitar peripheral you can find.
