it looks like it needs a regular guitar. Thanks op, nephews bday is coming
From the review, yes. The game comes with a usb cable that attaches to the guitar, I suppose that must be the pickup.
Quote: Get plugged in - Rocksmith includes a unique 1/4-inch-to-USB cable -the first of its kind - and allows users to plug any real guitar or bass with a 1/4-inch output jack directly into their Xbox 360
There is a video on amazon.
You must have a guitar that has a standard instrument jack. Any electric or acoustic electric guitar or bass will do.
Pickups are a magnet that transfers the string vibration to an amp etc. These are in or on tge guitar. The usb cable simply transfers and translates the signal to your game console by usb...
