The Ant Commandos (TAC), a leading provider of innovative wireless video game music peripherals and accessories, announced today that it has signed world renowned Guitar Hero Champion, Chris Chike, as its spokesperson in an exclusive, long-term deal.

At the launch of the inaugural “Guinness World Records: Gamer’s Edition 2008” in March of this year, the 16-year old from Minnesota walked away with a new Guinness World Record for the "Highest Score for a Single Song on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock" - an astounding 840,647 points (a 97% completion on Expert Level) for the song "Through the Fire and Flames"

by DragonForce. Since setting that record, Chike has already set a new world record by besting that score with a new Guinness World Record with 880,920 points, 97% accuracy and a 1,107 note streak on the same song.

Chike’s latest score as recorded on is 975,412 points with 99% accuracy, and a 2,485 note streak. Chike was also recently named Play N Trade National Guitar Hero III Champion and City Pages Magazine stated that “Chris Chike is the Jimi Hendrix of video games.” Video of Chris Chike playing the Ant Commandos’ V Shaped Double Range guitar which just launched last week can be viewed at .

"As a competitor, it’s important to me to have the best possible guitar to compete with, so I am psyched to work with TAC on creating custom guitars that serious players can rock with," said Chris Chike.

Through the partnership, Chike will promote TAC’s upcoming lineup of products hitting retail this spring and summer. Chike plans to work with TAC to design its next guitar controller, designed to cater to hardcore and advanced players. The new guitar controller will be inspired by Chike and his winning abilities with the design geared towards maximizing points during game play.

“Chris has accomplished an amazing feat scoring close to one million points on the hardest song in Guitar Hero III,” said Raymond Yow, Director of Marketing at TAC. “Being a record-setting champion of Guitar Hero, he demands the highest quality peripherals so his performance is at its very best. He is the perfect spokesperson for TAC.”

TAC’s new lineup includes its V shaped Double Range Guitar and the Widow Maker Wireless Bass Guitar. Both products offer 4-in-1 compatibility, meaning they are 100% compatible with all Guitar Hero and Rock Band games for PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3.
