Cool...Our second Xbox is the old model without an HDMI, so I will plug the audio into a stereo instead of the TV and just play on that one. That way, I don't have to undo the HDMI on our main Xbox.

Thanks for the info!

I just bought one of those Legacy guitars that were talked about way back. The white strat model is $79.99 today. A link in case anyone is interested: http://www.amazon.co...cy guitar white

I know it's not going to be great, but my hopes are to eventually put on a loaded pickguard from either dragonfire or gfs, possibly change the nut and tuners.

Crazedracerguy do you recall whether the current Fender 25/50/100 off promo applied to your Jaguar purchase?

If you need a 4x12 speaker cab with Celestion speakers, go to M123. They have a Randall cab for $250

Plan to win Powerball tonight. Will post pics of my new guitar after that.


That's not how you win Powerball. Ya gotta commit to it by buying the guitar first;).
Here, let me help you with some choices:
MF's stupid deal is for the Fender FSR blacktop tele for $430
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid/
Samash reloaded on those Gibson Firebird guitars @ $599
http://www.samash.co...Gig Bag_1952736
and they brought back the LP 60s tribute (p90 pups) @ $529
http://www.samash.co...Gig Bag_1465106
or go with the LP faded studio in cherry @ $529
http://www.samash.co... Gig Bag_817465

Now, where do I go for Powerball...

Guitar should be here in the morning :D

Sucks about the RS hunt. But congrats on the new guitar :beer:

Should turn out fine, especially if you're willing to tinker with it. Congrats :beer:

Yeah - you'll be in great shape, then. Some HDMI TVs work fine, but some are unplayable. I have one of each. I had an old audio splitter from way back that I was able to use.

Thanks. Hopefully it turn out well. I will be returning my brothers Alvarez tele now lol.

Question for anyone who may be able to help: I have an acoustic that played fine for a while. I snapped the B string right before a guitar class and had to put an electric string on it. I put a electric G on and tuned it to B, because I believe the gauge was only a difference of .1. I went out of town and left it on for a week and a half. Now that I've change the strings and went back to acoustic, I'm getting a lot of rattle on my strings from the first to third fret. The first three frets on the high E are completely dead.
I wouldn't think I got bad strings since its multiple strings. Any chance I messed up the nut? Anyone know any other things to check? Thanks for any help.

Rocksmith new version is $49.99 at Best Buy if you claim the offer on the Reward Zone site. You also get a 20% discount off musical accessories for a year if you buy an instrument (and I assume instrument bundles/packs qualify too) for $99 or more and are a Reward Zone member. It used to require a $299+ instrument to qualify.

Found 3 copies at a local Wal Mart on clearance for 19.99 so I bought two of them.

Question, do these have a history of cords coming with shorts in them? It's entirely possible that my guitar is at fault, it's ancient, but I was just kind of curious since at the moment I don't have any way to check with a different guitar. Hopefully I can remedy that at some point this weekend though.

I loved the sound of the pickups on that bloodstorm. But I already have two metal guitars in my schecter and ibanez. So I let my friend have it along with an extra playstation 3d tv I got on black Friday. It showed me I really need to polish the frets on my other two.

On another note I got my prs se 245 today. Liking it but its neck is way different taking some getting used to. That and the rosewoods grain looks massively different than any if the guitars that I have seen. Just wish I had more time to practice. With black Friday out of the way and most of holiday shopping done hopefully get back into the swing of things.

Has anyone tried any good guitar teaching books. I have tried justinguitar.com. I think I need to try a more traditional aproach to make better more focused use of my time. Just seem to have hit a wall with what rocksmith can do for me.

For more experianced people on here. What part of rocksmith gave you the most improvement?

Was it simply playing a hard song untill you forced yourself to improve. I really want to get better just not sure how to go about it.

I was confused the first time too when a guitar wasn't working on the game's tuning screen; I just had to turn the volume knob open though so the game would get enough signal lol

Depends on what you're getting. My MIM Tele from 2004 or so is one smooth playing guitar. What you REALLY have to look out for now are things like Fender's "Modern Player" series that are made in China. There is nowhere near the quality coming out of China that there was/is in Mexico or Japan.


This is just a personal oath,

I play the bagpipes before I buy a Chinese guitar.

I found songs that I REALLY liked and learned the hell out of them (both Nirvana songs, Offspring "Gone Away", TDG "I Hate (Everything About You)). By them time you find a few songs that you absolutely love and work them all the way through Master Mode performances in the 200,000s, you'll be surprised how much you have learned.

I really need to find a good book on Arpeggios - that is where I really struggle. If I could get those down better, I'd be pretty damn good on an axe. It's the reason that I can't play the 3DD songs, even though they're one of my favorite groups and 2 of those songs are in my top 200 all time song list...

Had mine pegged to 10 the entire time, just seemed that the plug wasn't making a solid contact and I would have to move it around a bit to get it to connect. Even then if I moved too much while playing it would lose contact again and wouldn't register. I'm hoping that if it's the plug Ubi has a good replacement program. I'd hate to pay more for a replacement cord than I did for the game.

Let me know what he has to do to get it replaced, hopefully it's headache free.

He just exchanged it for a new one at GameStop. He was getting no contact at all and was about to open it up to check the soldering on the input jack

I doubt that I get that lucky with Wal Mart, but we'll see.

I am still holding out that it's the old guitar, because it'd be a lot more fun to buy a new guitar rather than just get a new cord. :lol:

If they have another copy, i don't see why not. I've never had any problems exchanging items there. The first thing they ask me is if they have another copy back there. Then they bring it up front and do the exchange at customer service. I'm sure it would cost very little to fix your guitar, but it is a good excuse to buy one lol. My cheaper guitar is set to arrive today, and i already want a Mustaine Explorer haha

Even if it's the guitar, it may be fixable. One of my guitars was having a problem making solid contact. I ended up removing the jack from the guitar and as I thought, the clip that holds the cable was bent pretty bad. After bending it back into shape, the guitar worked almost as good as new, well, as good as a beat up POS could work.

Cool. I'll update the OP.
Offer is good until 12/8 on the Posted ImagePosted Image only (no PC sku listed, on the website anyway). And you either print up the coupon from myrz.com or access it from the BB mobile app.

And here are a couple bass deals, if you do the instrument deall that Psybuster mentioned:
Yamaha rbx170 in red or silver from $125-127
http://www.bestbuy.c...1900-01-01&gf=y
Sold out for shipping, so you'll hafta see if it's in stock near you


Any chance I messed up the nut? Anyone know any other things to check? Thanks for any help.

Don't have an acoustic, but sounds like the electric string tweaked the neck.
Maybe give it a couple of days to settle back now that you put on the right string

Wow, another local! If you need a 360 version, the new North Huntingdon store has a few marked $19.99. I'm not sure about PS3.
