Default Question about wireless guitar choices for Wii Rock Band

Sorry if this has been addressed before, but I can't seem to find the info.
Is there another (by which I basically mean cheaper) option for snagging a wireless guitar for Wii Rock Band than buying the $60 - $70 official Rock Band Guitar? We currently have Wii Rock Band 1 but will probably get RB2 at some point.

circuit city had the GH3 official guitars for 20$ before the liquidation started.
Likely all gone now.

The should be, particularly on Wii since I'm pretty sure they all use the wii-mote anyway.

Yeah, that's what I thought.
Weird that there's basically no other options for the original Rock Band on Wii. Only other, cheaper choice I see are these "third party hardware designed for Wii" wireless guitars I sometimes see offered on ebay. Anybody know anything about these?

Thanks for that chart, mich..I'm starting to piece together guitars and drums and was looking around for compatibility..Looks like I'm good with the GH 3 guitar I have and the world tour guitar I have on order...and it looks like the RB 2 drums are the way to go to ensure all game compatibility.

now..The microphones.....hmmmm.

Edit: for PS3

So basically it looks like only the official Rock Band wireless guitar is compatible with Rock Band I for Wii.
Correct?
