    This achievement can be really really hard if you don't use the cheat code. It would involve you 5 staring every song on Expert to unlock all the guitars for purchase.

    Go to you options menu and "Enter Cheat". You must strum each note. EX. first part you hold down Green +Red+Blue+Orange then strum. When you finish the sequence there will be no sound.

    Enter:


    Press [Green + Red + Blue + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Blue], [Green + Red + Yellow + Orange], [Green + Blue + Yellow + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Blue], [Red + Yellow + Blue + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Blue], [Green + Yellow + Blue + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Blue], [Green + Red + Yellow + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Orange], [Green + Red + Yellow + Blue], [Green + Red + Yellow + Orange].

    Then go to expert career, then enter the store. The Axe Collector achievement should pop upon entering, along with Burnin a Hole in your Pocket, Got em' All, and Track Master. I don't normally agree with using cheats, but if your not one of the best GH3 players in the world, you won't be unlocking this achievement anytime soon!

    boydo1990I did it with a controller, just to confirm.

    JeroenRosGreat solution, still works after 10 years, you have my upvote! Just one tiny thing, the fourth command you state, being [Green + Blue + Yellow + Orange], is kinda off from the format of the other ones. As for the others you go down the neck of the guitarhero controller and for this one you switched up Yellow and Blue. Not that this is wrong, it is just a tiny bit confusing :)

    For most people this achievement is impossible legitimate as it requires you to complete all difficulties of career and 5 star every song, so a cheat way is to enter the 'Unlock everything' cheat from the cheats menu in options.
    Must be done with a guitar

    Hold the 4 corresponding frets (Colours showing in the picture) and strum after each one. If you enter it right there will be a cheer and a pop up of 'unlocked everything'
    Press start once you are finished, then head into a career and the store and this along with the other 3 buying achievements will unlock.

    boydo1990Your guide needs updating. I can confirm you don't need a guitar. You just have to strum your notes by pressing up on the D-pad. That being said, I didnt get it when using your codes, but did with the guide above it. Could just be my shitty controller tho

    If you want to get this achievement legit, you not only have to play through all career difficulties and 5 star every song in each but you also have to play all co-op career difficulties and 5 star every song on each of those as well to unlock the last 8 bass guitars.
