I don't have a PS3 so I've just did some googling..

When using the controller for the first time or when using with a different PS3 system, you must first pair the devices. If you turn on the system and connect the controller using a USB cable, the pairing will be completed automatically.

Each time you turn on the system, a number must be assigned to the controller. The user can connect up to 7 controllers at one time. The controller number is shown by the number above the port indicators. For numbers 5-7 add the numbers of the lit indicators
Does the guitar have the PS button in order for you to pair it?

I'm trying to help you but I don't own a PS3 so it's kinda hard..

Questions:

1. Did you read the manual / directions to see how to pair it with your PS3?

2. Do you have the USB Guitar dongle plugged in?

3. Is there a "PS" button on the Guitar.

As far as I can tell from googling a cord doesn't plug into the guitar.. There is a USB dongle that plugs into the PS3.

See where that cord is plugged into on that second picture? There is a usb port there. Plug in the guitar. Hit the ps button a couple times or shut it off and turn it back on.
