    Aly & AJ showing off their Rock Band/Guitar Hero guitarsAly & AJ are getting their own Guitar Hero and Rock Band girly guitars. The guitar peripherals will be available in mid-October 2008 for Wii & PS2 and will cost $69.99.

    Pre-Order the Guitar Hero World Tour band kit on WiiThe girls appeared on the E! Network (Entertainment Television) and although brief, the girls do talk about their love for Guitar Hero and show off their guitars; whose look was actually designed by the teen pop star sisters themselves. So the duet can now add “video game guitar co-designers” to their growing list of accomplishments that includes: acting, song writing, singing and guitar playing (yes they do actually play real guitar), among other things (like shooting guns: see video at very bottom).

  • And why not? As a new study has shown, 97% of American youth play video games, and that includes 94% of girls. So it’s fitting that companies should develop guitar peripherals that girls would be more inclined to pick up.

    And since Aly (real name: Alyson Renae “Aly” Michalka) & AJ (real name: Amanda Joy “AJ” Michalka) are young themselves (one is 17 the other is 19) it’s only fitting that their new guitars are aimed at a younger audience.

    Here is a breakdown of each guitar.

    The guitars are being designed by video game accessory company PDP (Performance Designed Products). As stated above, they are for PS2 and Wii which means that they SHOULD work with both Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero 4 World Tour and one would presume they might also work with the PS3 versions of both games.

    In addition, one of the guitars is designed specifically for tweens ages 8 to 12, while the other is for teens and older.

    And just for fun, here is a video showing the girls shooting guns . . . You DO NOT want to mess with Aly & AJ!
