Yeah. It would be a HELL of a deal if the correct guitar ships out. That's usually a grand.

I picked up one of those Griffin units at Target today for 9.xx. Thanks, rbarb4, for that heads up. I'll watch the iRig, too. I think they'll be around at 70%. Most people don't know what the hell they are.

Yea, all the comments about receiving the wrong one are from Music123 being the seller. From what I read elsewhere, Amazon then dropped the price to match it(even though they were matching the wrong model). They only had a few in stock, but those lucky people got them already and it was the right one.

So all depends if Amazon restocks or not - my guess is probably not, but worth a shot.

In the review section someone said they got the wrong one in the comments of the amazon review one, but didn't specify if it was amazon or music123? . Can you tell us where you got the other info?

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

Didn't learn anything all that useful from the Guitar Center seminar thing, got a free set of strings though, only two people were there including myself and I still lost the free setup raffle :(

I didn't really learn anything either, but I did enjoy myself. At first the guy didn't seem happy to do it but he warmed up after a bit and actually wound up being pretty cool. During the seminar I had some questions about setup issues with a couple of my guitars. At the end I had to remind the guy about the free setup raffle. He was going to write our names & drop them in a hat but one of the guys stepped up & said it sounded like I needed it so he wouldn't compete. After this the one other guy in attendance agreed and said I could just have it. Score! The GC guy wrote my name & number on a pad & wrote "free setup from seminar" next to it. Should I be worried that I won't get it or is that enough?

Well, less than a month to go for the PC release of Rocksmith (plus the new disc version for 360 & ps3). But here's an update on pricing for the current versions:
--$40 at Toys R Us online. Free ship for orders over 50 or free in-store pickup
--$50 at just about every other store: Bestbuy, Gamestop, walmart, target.
Of course if you've waited this long, might as well wait to see what happens to prices when the new disc hits the street.

Had another Target clearance find as well. This time it's for the ION Piano Apprentice for $20.98 (70% off). Good for ipad, iphone, ipod

Know it's not guitar related, but you'll probably appreciate it if you've been going at it on guitar

One last mention of the Kickstarter guitars since there's only two days left to get in. They've posted another update to provide info on the specs for the guitar build.

And it looks like someone checked their couch for loose change cuz they went ahead and pledged for the 10k reward:hot:. Playa in da house8-)

So far so good on the Griffin guitar cable. Used it with a couple of apps and worked without a hitch. Gonna try a few others and if all checks out, I'll see about grabbing another. Always have my phone on me so this would be a real convenient way to get some offline practice in. Might start stashing guitars at places I park it for long periods of time

Now for a few guitar deals.
The MF Stupid Deal of the Day is for the Rogue Rocketeer guitar @ $60
http://www.musicians...id/?icid=200510
Only about 6 hours left before it expires
Amazon has another Kalos guitar bundle for $65 (this time in black)
http://www.amazon.co...48529142&sr=1-2
Amazon also has an AXL guitar for lefties @ $113
http://www.amazon.co...8529236&sr=1-66
And Hello Music has an ESP XJ-6 japanese custom guitar (sparkle red) @ $698
http://www.hellomusi....aspx?did=15745
Pretty sure I posted a similar deal early in the year. IIRC, these were originally made for the Japanese market only. Don't remember for sure (and too lazy to search tonight)

Rbarb4 - are you playing in an app like Songsterr or one of those? I want to try one, I just haven't yet. Saw that the iRigs dropped to 50% today. I'll probably grab one at 20 and hope there's still one there at 70% off to buy and return on the old receipt.

Guitar center's weekly in-store deal is for the Deltalab flanger pedal @ $30
http://www.guitarcen...eal-g25903t0.gc

And Music123 has the deluxe Rogue Rocketeer guitar in their weekly sale for $100. Choose between sunburst or silverburst
http://www.music123.com/pages/123Deals

EDIT: Just saw that Hellomusic has a couple blowout deals (for them). Remember seeing the You Rock midi guitar for 110 and the BC rich masterpiece guitar for 210 as well as a few different pedals.
Links will hafta wait until I get on a real computer. Ipad keeps reloading pages, making it a real pain to copy the links. But you can see the stuff under the 2 "biggest sale of the Year" tabs
EDIT2: ok, here are the HM links
You Rock guitar @ 110 http://www.hellomusi...13956&cat=PROMO
BC Rich guitar @ 210 http://www.hellomusi...0&cat=EDUCATION
ESP-ltd H330nt strat @ 258 http://www.hellomusi...15629&cat=PROMO
Dean hillsboro j-bass @ 198 http://www.hellomusi...43&cat=PROAUDIO
Fender standard p-bass @ 459 http://www.hellomusi...32&cat=PROAUDIO
The guitars have shown up before at higher prices. Pretty sure I found some reviews on that ESP so you can look for that old post for the links

Rbarb4 - are you playing in an app like Songsterr or one of those? I want to try one, I just haven't yet. Saw that the iRigs dropped to 50% today. I'll probably grab one at 20 and hope there's still one there at 70% off to buy and return on the old receipt.


So far, I've tested out Garageband, iShred(this one's mentioned in the Griffin packaging), Rock prodigy, Fast tune and Miso(this was a holdover from when I bought the Woodees cable-piece of junk)

The Miso app is the only one that has given any problems, but I feel it's due to it being a poor app. Turned the in-app sensitivity up on that one and finally got it to respond.

All the other ones have worked smoothly. Songsterr looks cool. Just too cheap to get at this time with all these other things that I've already got to mess with

Finally broke down and purchased the Dean- Michael Amott Tyrant Bloodstorm guitar. I should have acted sooner. It went from "in-stock" to "ships in 9-11 weeks" to "ships in 2-6 MONTHS". I guess I'll know if it was a good decision by early April. I guess that gives me plenty of time to save and/or change my mind

Have a issue with the game. We'll more with the drop d tuning on some songs. Seems the game just refuses to catch the upper seven frets. Mostly ignored the songs so far. Now I am trying to get the unlock songs. It's really making me frustrated knowing I am playing right and having the game just ignore me.

Drop D is finicky in the game. In most cases, it's 1 of 2 things - intonation is a little off or you're fretting too hard. If you watch the indicators, you can always detune a little up or down to see if that helps.

Zzounds.com has a couple good deals going on right now. Kramer Assault 220 (copper metallic only) $169.95 I highly recommend this guitar for this price. I have quite a few more expensive and "better" guitars but this is my primary guitar for Rocksmith.
Kramer 422S Striker Bass $179.00. I can't speak for its quality, but it goes for $330 on other sites

Guitar Center is holding ukelelee classes every Saturday, at 10am I think.
Got an email about it a bit back but forgot until I saw a sign in-store today. Asked if you had to already have your own uke and they said they'll let you borrow an in-store model.

I've been wanting to mess around with uke's for a while. So this would be a free way to see if you like it.

And looked thru my Musicians Friend catalog. Back cover has a deal for the Schecter Hellraiser Deluxe at $350, normally 550(ymmv on getting other coupons to stack).
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
Not quite the Schecter deal Amazon had last year but pretty close and this one has proper fret markers and a maple neck+fretboard. Maybe that's worth the extra dough to ya;)

Looks like the XMT model, aka the model talked about waaay back at the beginning of the thread. Nice find, especially since stores nuked coupon usage on Deans

Kramer 422S Striker Bass $179.00. I can't speak for its quality, but it goes for $330 on other sites

Price on those two should stay the same for the week. They're both listed in the weekly email.
The Assault220 is pretty cool just a little too similar to something I already have. Would probably bite if they do the same with the 211

And if it isn't obvious, don't have as much free time nowadays to post. Barely have time to look at the threads. So if ya see something, POST IT!:)

Good to know! I just picked up a vintage Tempo uke from Goodwill last week for $2, but really don't know much about them.

Good chance you'll get the right model (if they still have stock). Someone on SD posted receiving the right guitar, with custom fit case. Bunch of pics you can look at too.

Did the uke class and not too bad for what was about 30min.

It was done in one of the soundproof rooms. GC DOES provide you a uke for the class. My instructor asked what experience we had with uke or guitar and went from there as to how simple or complex he made explanations. By the end of class learned where to strum, couple diff ways to strum, 4 chords, the chord progression for 2 songs and you play those two songs while the instructor sings the song. Best part is holding & making real music with it. Much better than plinking around with no real direction. Gives you a good sense of whether or not you want to keep at it

Good experience, at least for me. Class is the same every Saturday, so you can go again but you'll cover the same stuff. There was one dude taking it again to have more practice strummin and chord changes as well as learnin the songs.

By the way saw this the other day. Pretty awesome to get that outta a uke

Didn't know that. Woulda been better if they had stayed with the 15watt model. HM's been sucking wind for the last few months. Maybe things'll improve after the holidays.

Most Rocksmith game deals are the same, but there are a couple minor changes. Amazon and Walmart each have the Posted Image at $42 and the Posted Image at $45. And the lowest price out there is still Toys R Us at $40.

Next, someone at SD noticed that Rondo has some SE versions of the Agile3010 guitars at $300, bit lower than the standard 3000 series
http://www.rondomusi...m/newitems.html
You can use the links in the OP to learn more about Agile guitars

And pretty big news on Rocksmith DLC. They're gonna release three massive song packs at a discount, for each.
http://forums.ubi.co...-DLC-Batman!!!?
But looks like it'll only be for PC users. Here's hoping they give us console owners some love
----- ----- ----- -----
On a personal note, almost definetely gonna get a uke. Can't stop thinking about it since going to the class. Just a matter of choosing a model and showing some patience to order thru ukerepublic. They seem to setup the uke before shippin'em out. The costco model is a good starter but obviously no pro setup

If anyone is near a Sears, they have put :360:Rocksmith on clearance for $29.97. It was part of the October price drops. Not sure about the :ps3: version.
