Here's a little more info on the SamAsh BF deals. Looks like the Online store will do a better job on some deals.
http://www.samash.co...ck-friday-deals
For example, the Epi LPjr deal is also good for the TransBlue and Cherryburst (have this one) models instead of only the white and cherry models.
The PRS se245 guitars are 10bucks cheaper. And remember the website doesn't charge sales tax in most states.
Website's also gonna have the Carlo Robelli a/e guitar for $99.77
http://www.samash.co...Burst_-49969667

Wouldn't mind the transblue LPjr or the PRS, but gonna hold off after my recent binge.

There is a nice deal on a fender amp 99 from 199. The same as guitarcenters black Friday price.

www.music123.com/amplifiers-effects/fender-pawn-shop-special-greta-2w-1x4-tube-guitar-combo-amp

Thanks for the heads-up. Always liked it, but not for 200. PM'd thru MF just so I could use up the giftcard from the livingsocial deal. So it was like 77 out of pocket for me and saves me a trip on Friday.

and if you don't know, the Greta is a mini amp that easily fits on a shelf. Has a line-in so you can hook up an ipod. And there's a 1/4" line out so you can hook into a larger speaker cab

I wish you had not posted that sam ash was going to have their sale online. Now I am really tempted with that prs semi hollow again.

My dean tyrant just shipped. Was really thinking about canceling it. I just need to stop telling my friends when I guy guitars. They probably already think I am crazy.

The real problem is I make great money at my job but don't have time to use it. Paying my bills for the month with one weeks check. That and learning guitar has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I normally get all excited about something spend a bunch of money and loose interest. With guitar it just gets better and better as the frustration of learning is going away. I suck at playing but I love doing what little I can do.

What did you pick up or is it still just the dean epiphone and schecter?

He won't tell. :)

On another note, for those of you that kind of get tired with the setlist on RS, I spent 2.99 last night and subscribed to Tab Pro service from UltimateGuitar.com... Learned the basics of "Second Chance - Shinedown last night in about 20 minutes... I would never have been able to do that without RS. The Tab Pro stuff is nice, though. You can look at a fretboard that shows suggested fingerings, etc. There is a Rock Band view that shows it on the fretboard like you're looking at Rock Band... Pretty cool and a HUGE list of songs that you can do that with..

Epiphone LP Junior at GC this weekend for $89... That's pretty cheap for a good beginner electric.

Besides the GC deal on the Epi LPjr, SamAsh online has'em for $99 in different colors. And they don't charge sales tax in most states. I'd go with the SamAsh models only because I've found that those limited edition models were usually in better playable condition than the standard sunburst model. Any of'em will need some sort of set-up work. It's just that the I've found the L.E. models in better condition to start. Which gives you time to learn basic set-up work on the guitar (like string changes, bridge adjustments, Intonation)

I love my cherryburst model and go back to it regularly. Having used it so much, I understand why it was chosen as the pack-in model. It's a straight forward, inexpensive rock machine. The RS software handles the tone while you concentrate on learning to play. So not that big a deal that there's only one humbucker pickup. I was serious about wanting the transblue model too. But I need another guitar like I need another left foot

He won't tell. :)
.

I decline to answer on the grounds that it'll be used against me during the gift-giving season:-#

On a completely unrelated note, those Silverburst Firebirds are so freakin awesome and much lighter than you would think. Especially switching from the Schecter PT. that PT is crazy heavy for its size

I am glad I am ignorant about so many guitars. All of those sam ash gibson blowouts would be killing me if I knew what I was missing.

I think I am slowly loosing the battle to not order semi-hollow. Just worried that they don't have the tri color burst. All the other stores only have natural and I would be very disappointed if that's what they shipped.

I'm looking to learn guitar via Rocksmith and have a nice starter kit for when I advance. Would this Fender Strat bundle be a good buy? A friend told me he bought it years ago for around $300. It's $99 currently.

http://www.guitarcen...087-i1932693.gc

and would I be able to pick up the old version of Rocksmith? I don't need a bass version. Is that the only thing in the new version?

or should I pick up the Epiphone Les Paul junior for $89? Is the junior smaller than a normal sized guitar? I've always had a visual thing for Les Pauls. I read that thinner necks are best for beginners so would either of these be a problem?

I'd get the Epi... That starcaster is barely a passable guitar. You'll be much happier with the Epi and you may even still play t a bit when you upgrade your guitars. You won;t play the starcaster at all later if you get that....

Get the version with the bass. You'll probably change your mindset of not being interested in it once you start getting into Rocksmith. This way, you're already covered.

Just to let everyone know musicianfriend has a new price match policy. They give you the match AND a gif certificate for 50% of the difference.

So say you were to price match sam ash antique white prs se 245 at $350. You would save $269 and get a 135 gift certificate. Making a $619 guitar basically $215.

So yeah I am ordering one of those tomorrow.

One note they do take 2 weeks to get you the gift certificate. Understandable as it woul give time for the black Friday prices to clear out.

Also if you happen to buy a prs se guitar you can mail in your receipt to prs and get this.

With the purchase of any SE Electric Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, or Amplifier from an Authorized PRS Dealer during the promotion period, you will receive: one (1) 18’ PRS cable, one (1) PRS Nylon Strap, one (1) PRS knit stocking cap, one (1) PRS ceramic coffee mug, one (1) PRS lanyard, one (1) PRS block logo sticker. Approximate Retail Value of this Thank You Package is: $175.00.

If you take that value at there word makes the se 245 $40. At least how I am looking at it when I am ordering another guitar before that amott bloodstorm even gets to my door.

Good for me that MF doesn't carry the white model and they won't PM the sunburst since it isn't in stock over at SA

Yeah was about to post that they are limited to the black now.

Lucky for me the csr I emailed didn't know that. So I was able to price match the tobacco burst for 350 and get a $150 gift card. Thanks to who posted that deal on the fender bar stools. Gave me $20 credit so only 330 out of pocket.

Here is hoping they don't come up with anymore deals like that in two weeks when I get that gift card.

Good question on worldmusicsupply. I totally forgot about them over the last few days. The closest thing I could find were these. Great price on the pro as just the emgs are $200. But again like you said these could just be their regular prices.

On another note hercules guitar stands normally $50 now $25. Got two as a price match to musicians friend got a $25 gift certificate.

Haha I know. I want it really badly, but at this point it looks like ill end up with the guitar and bass version when I get it. I had ordered one via gohastings a couple months ago, but of course it didn't come with the cable (although the listing said it did). One day I will join your ranks!

The stand might be something for me to consider. I have a couple guitars with nitro finishes and can't rest them on any of the stands I have. But even though they claim its safe, there is a disclaimer that says maybe not
