It’s got a highly sensitive tilt sensor for perfect Overdrive deployment. It also has improved strum bar for increased precision at high speeds and is foldable.

Two more accessories were also announced including a charger dock for the new Fender Jaguar and a Rock Band 4 Wired Legacy Adapter for Xbox One. The Legacy adapter is licensed by Microsoft and is exclusively compatible with Rock Band 4 and these specific legacy controllers: Rock Band 3 Midi PRO-Adapter for Xbox 360, ION Drum Rocker for Xbox 360 Wired legacy Rock Band peripherals.

Although it states that the adapter is still in development Harmonix and PDP are working together to achieve compatibility across the line.
