A rhythm game that's worth getting for the guitar gameplay alone?

The last game I purchased in the rhythm genre was Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock., I loved the hell out of it. I then went on to buy Guitar Hero II and while I didn't love it so much, I still enjoyed playing it. Now with Guitar Hero pretty much becoming  Rock Band's cousin, I was wondering if any of the new "Guitar Hero"/Rock Band games were worth buying for the guitar gameplay alone. I don't have any room in my house at the moment for a plastic drum kit, and would like to venture again in to the rhythm genre.
 
Any thoughts?

I play Rock Band 2 with no drums, and I love it.

Give me some songs dude. I know Metallica, but not the kickass setlist that might be there.

I think it'd be worth it if you like the track list enough. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one for just the guitar parts. But I'd recommend getting Rock Band 2 so you can pick and choose from it's ridiculous catalogue of songs.

Setlist is also here
 
GH: Metallica is my favorite GH to play. The setlist is pretty fun to play, especially if you like a challenge.

I, too, enjoyed Rock Band 2 using the guitar only.
