Rock Band stratocaster PSGTS2 won't connect.

I just bought a used wireless Rock Band Stratocaster for PS3, model no. PSGTS2 (woodgrain neck). It came without a dongle, but I didn't think it would be a problem because I already had two similar wireless stratocasters (part no 822151-303, white neck) at home.

In short, the newly bought guitar won't connect to PS3/RB3. I have a hunch that the dongles for these two slightly different RB guitars are NOT interchangeable, but I'm looking for confirmation of such. Can anybody help me out.

The new guitar (the one that doesn't work) has 4 flashing red lights near the PS button (my old guitars don't have these lights at all). Yes, I have tried pressing the sync buttons on both the guitar and the dongle, no go.

    RB1 and RB2 guitar dongles are indeed NOT interchangeable.

    It sounds like you are trying to use an RB1 dongle with an RB2 guitar.

    Hey, thanks for the quick reply.

    Next question... anyone out there have a RB2 stratocaster dongle that they can part with. I've priced them on eBay, but they're cost prohibitive for a $8 guitar.

    Next question... how can I tell the two (RB, RB2) dongles apart, I assume they look similar.

    Can't sell stuff on the forums, because Harmonix is held responsible for anything that goes wrong.

    Yeah, people know what the dongles ae worth so they charge dang near the price of a brand new RB3 guitar thusly you are better of just buying one.

    It used to be that RB1 guitar dongles were black and RB2 were grey but I have seen black RB2 dongles too. FWIW Beatles guitar dongles are compatable with RB2 guitars.

    Since they were NEVER sold separately that was never really needed. Guitars come with the dongle they work with, the problem is when people split them up and this was never intended.

    RB2 Dongle or Beatles Dongle, its EASY to tell the difference, they have a couple USB ports built in, regardless of color. RB1 Dongles have NO extra USB ports.

    Next time feel free to post a new thread in the peer to peer help forum as opposed to digging up a long dead thread.
