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

No such luck. Got desperate and adjusted the truss rod. I little turn counter clockwise and the notes are no longer dead. Turned a little more just to see if I could reduced buzz. Got rid of a little, but I was afraid to turn anymore lol

Sam Ash is at it again. They just added another model to their Gibson blowout sale.
The Melody Maker dual p90 models are $429
http://www.samash.co... Guitar_1759059
Lowest priced American made Gibsons out there, unless you find any of the single pup Melody makers. But if you're considering these, you gotta compare'em with the Gibson LPjr's that Zzounds is selling at $500 (at least try to PM).

Amazon has the Schecter PT fastback @ $354
http://www.amazon.co...4610444&sr=1-29
If it's half as good as the standard PT, then you'll be real happy with it. Hard to say if it'll drop lower. Seen alot of other deals dry up sooner than they should've. But hey, maybe I'm just being too much of a cheapass:)

And Sweetwater has a Gibson LP 50s tribute Goldtop for $675
http://www.sweetwate...etail/LPST5HGT/

Just purchased at $29.99 on Amazon.

Edit: It's the old version.

Thanks. Looks like they also put the New Version on sale @ $60

Hellomusic another G&L tribute tele @ $329, this time in trans-red
http://www.hellomusi....aspx?did=15975

And someone on SD noticed that MF has a couple guitars on sale, which also qualify for an additional 20% discount
Schecter SGR solo6 guitar(white)@ 143. Throw it in your cart and it goes down to $115
http://www.musicians...h78876000003000
Schecter SGR c-4 bass guitar(white)@ 159. Goes down to $128
http://www.musicians...h78875000001000
SGR is the new budget line for Schecter; kinda like what Epiphone->Gibson, Squier->Fender. Think Schecter started the budget line this past year.

And while digging thru, I found a few other guitars on sale.
Vox SDC33 @ $330 (all finishes)
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
Vox SSC33 @ $330 (most finishes)
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
Schecter Tempest @ $300(goldtop) or $330(white)
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
ESP h330-nt @ $250 (white
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
Gibson Les Paul Nitrous @ $900 (electric lime, orange glow)
http://www.musicians...electric-guitar
Those Vox guitars have some interesting pups and selector switches. I'll try to post some review links that I found the other day

I saw Target, in store, had the original version of Rocksmith marked down to $29.99 for both PS3 and 360, if anyone is looking for a copy.

I was not looking to buy any pedals any time soon but with I deal like this I could not pass. J&r has some tri mode pedals on sale for 49.00 priced 179.99 at muscians friends. Price match will get you a $65 gift card. Price match music 123 and it will be less than 20.

Drastion... I'm not sure if I love you or hate you. I think I love you. I KNOW my wallet hates you...

Found a Fender American Tele PERFECT in black for 475 today with the SKB OHSC...

And now I'm sitting here debating a Schecter Damien Elite for... Wait for it... 167.99... I don't think I can pass it up...

EDIT: Ok, I passed on the Schecter. it was too similar to the ESP I have to justify buying it right now... Bought the American Tele...

Posted Image

Crazy... Less than half price from MF, and that's with MF having the Fender rebate on. Couldn't pass that up...


EDIT 2: I just realized that my Jaguar AND this American Tele were paid for with the credit from trading in my PS3 at Gamestop... Between flipping games, buying a Squier Rock Band Strat (that I them sold on Ebay) and $40 of Shopkick, it all but paid for both of these axes. Pretty awesome. God, I love CAG!

Both at a Best Buy about 70 miles north of me. The Schecter was mislabeled... It was labeled as a C-1, but it was actually a Damien Elite (EMG 81/85 Pups, cross inlay on fretboard, damien elite on the truss rod cover). They sell for 499 at MF and Amazon, but they had it labeled as a C-1 and the tag said "was 329, Now 167.99". I'm pretty sure they never sold it for that... So it was an amazing (mislabeled) deal - I just didn't need another "Rock" guitar...

Congrats man!
Kinda moved on since it's slim pickins round here

Musicians friend current PM promo is 150%. But the way it works is to match the sale price of other store, then give 50% of price diff on a giftcard (good towards future purchase).

Alternative is Music123 who'll currently do 123% PM. No giftcard, but it brings the price down lower, without a future purchase requirement

Finally got around to picking up a copy at the local Walmart for $20. The guy working the register was shocked at the price.

Oh... Funny story about the Tele today... So I grab it and take it to the counter and the guy working there is a small Indian guy. I say "Can you grab the case for it?". He says it doesn't come with one. I say wrong and point the case to him and he says "I can't reach it." I'm like RU serious? I tell him to get a manager. The manger comes and looks at it and says "I don't know if I can reach it". I thought... Please don't make me call corporate and tell them someone blew a $500 sale because they didn't want to climb a ladder... Dumbasses. It's not like its a Cheapy case - it's a fender branded SKB hard case that goes for $149 by itself.


Anyway, there was the Schecter still at this store, a 40 watt tube fender classic reverb amp ($3?9), a left handed standard Strat ($179), quite a few pawn shop '72s and '51s (500-ish), some Gibson melody makers and not much else that caught my eye. Probably the picking are slim, at this point. If the pawn shops drop lower to the range of my jaguar, I may snag one. Otherwise, I'm done for now.

For those new to or looking to buy Rocksmith: RCA/Toslink adapter for Xbox
This is your best method for eliminating lag. I have mine set up with an HDMI and this. There are plenty if places to buy this for cheep, but I was browsing my emails this morning and came across it. $2.23 +shipping (I think usually around $2.50 or so when I've ordered small items from them). It made me think of the multiple times I've seen the issue of lag discussed in here. Not sure what the best solution for PS3 is however.

PSA Time:
Today's the last day for the Bestbuy RZone deal. Still some time left before stores close. Not likely to drop lower than $50 'til some time next year. So good time as any to get started.

And in general, Change your Strings!:). It's easy to get used to old strings. But it's sooo much nicer with a fresh set

Musician's Friend Stupid Deal of the day is a Viper 330 for $249... usually $399. I can PERSONALLY vouch for this guitar. I bought a B stock copy from Hello Music months ago. It is a really nice playing rock/metal guitar. Comfortable neck, jumbo frets, EMG 81/85s.

I got my price match for the Akai distortion pedal from Music123. $19.10 after price match. Not bad for a $179 pedal :) Thanks yet again, Drastion.

Work through the first songs. They lay the groundwork for what you need to know later. Once you open Ducks, play it some to help with the fret board.

For practice outside of RS, a lot of people have used the lessons on justinguitar.com - they're free and surprisingly good. They will give you a solid basis for playing the game. You'll be surprised how quickly you pick things up. Just don't get discouraged - it takes a long time to learn guitar, but it's awesome to be able to do it. If you're really serious about it, you'll see your time playing other games go down and you'll spend a couple of hours a day playing guitar...

Just a question for people that got the schecter damien special last year. Were the frets on your guitar crowned? Found out that the flat ones on my guitar are not normal. Was that the same for anyone elses. Does not matter much now. Just trying to decide if I want to go threw the effort of crowning it myself.
