Default Guitar Hero Wired USB Controller

Hey, I'm looking to buy a nice and cheap wired Guitar Hero USB Controller (Usually made for the Xbox 360). I want to play some Guitar Hero on my PC. I believe it's called the X-Plorer guitar, and it looks like this:

I've seen them go for free to about $10 or so around Craigslist and such, so I'll probably be asking for a price around there.
Thanks for looking!

you can also use the wireless versions, if you have and or get one of the microsoft wireless dongles for your pc. It will let you use the wireless 360 controllers, of which the wireless guitars are part of. You can get those dongles off ebay or dx extreme for cheap. I hear they are hard to find in stores now though.

Went down to my local EB Games, they didn't have any used guitars except a couple very poorly taped boxes which were sold for $50 and over.

Guitar hero 3 works fine with windows 7, as with xbox 360 controllers and headsets (actually it works right out of the box flawlessly). Ive got it here with an x-plorer guitar and have zero issues.
