Do Guitar Hero peripherals work with Rock Band and vice versa?

Subject pretty much says it all. I've got PS3 + Rock Band, and would like to use Guitar-hero controllers. Are there adapters? Can I hack them, somehow?

Similarly, can I make my own controllers? Are there sites with good DIY instructions? By "make", I mean from scratch; I think I can figure out "buy a guitar, take it apart, put the bits into different plastics..."

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Awww, that other question was a duplicate of this one, asked a month later! ;) – Olie Jun 12 '11 at 1:37

Most work ... but not all.

What would you need an adapter for? If the Guitar Hero controllers are designed for the PS3, just plug them in and use them in Rock Band.

I use Guitar Hero controllers for Rock Band all the time-no adapter needed. – averyzoe Jul 8 '10 at 22:33

Your Guitar Hero guitar controllers should work with Rock Band, as I do this all the time. You will require a software update for this to work. If your PS3 is connected to the Internet, you should be prompted for this the first time you play Rock Band.

I can't personally vouch for the other Guitar Hero peripherals, as I've not tried them, but they are supposed to be compatible.
