Harmonix Music Systems and MTV Games, the duo responsible for a little game called Rock Band revealed today two signature Beatles instruments available when The Beatles: Rock Band hits shelves in September.

The Rickenbacker 325 and Gretsch Duo Jet will be available as standalone wireless instruments priced at the gargantuan and downright scary $99.99 price tag.‚  Dropping a Benjamin on a plastic guitar, I don’t think I could do it. However, die-hard Beatle-heads probably won’t even think twice, but for the rest of us?

The new double shot of replica instruments join the Paul McCartney signature Hoffner bass guitar and the Ring Starr inspired drum kit and of course will be compatible with every old title.

If you’re thinking about ponying up the cash to pre-order this bad boy, a pre-order club went live today promising constituents access to breaking news and behind the scenes goodies.‚  But c’mon, really?‚  Blast has the info as soon as it drops and stops at nothing to keep you in the loop, dedicated reader!
