Yay, Burnin' for You. I was hoping they'd release this after seeing the (inferior) Godzilla and Reaper come along.

Now if they'll just put out some more of Boston's stuff from their original record. Who *doesn't* want to play Peace of Mind, Smokin', or Foreplay/Long Time? And we know they can get it done since More Than a Feeling is already available.

Also, anyone else at the beginner/intermediate level finding No Rain is a lot of fun?

The digital PC copy is $19.49 on Steam and Amazon right now. Of course you'll need the cable, but not a bad price for those who missed out when it was $15 a couple months ago.

Yup, see whatcha mean. I remember "love" and "heaven" songs; just didn't remember their titles. "World" is bleh.

Did a quick run of Lovesong last night and scored ok for a song I hadn't ever played. Think it'll be real fun once I learn it.

I'll get to "heaven" once I load up some more MS points

Sometimes, you have to love the ineptitude of best buy employees... Drove up north to the music BB 60 miles out to pick up 2 $150 SKB Fender cases that were on clearance for $79 each. They had 2, but no tags anywhere on them. The guy said "how much you want to pay?". I laughed it off. He said "No really, how much do you want to pay?" I said I thought they were like 50 bucks. He said "how about 40 a piece?"...

After a little Shopkick love, I paid $75 out of pocket for $300 worth of SKB hard case goodness. Is it any wonder I love Best Buy?

Shamelessly stolen from another site:
Fender mustang 1 amp for $79 (normally 110).
http://www.bestbuy.c...=5145721&loc=01
I have the g-dec3 amp, which is similar in that they both can access FUSE software. Basically lets you dial in any tone you want


Is it any wonder I love Best Buy?


Nice score. Why don't I get that same love around here.

I was recently at a BB and there were hardly any employees on the floor (unlike my typical experience where I'm asked if I need help every other aisle). I suspect they may be laying people off due to poor sales and those that are left don't give a damn because they assume they are next. Then again, who really knows.

I took another look at the last really good Fender deal they had - my one store had a '50's Classic Series Road Worn Stratocaster for $405. I don;t know what they did to it - my guess is that they hung it up high and the heat from the can light they had up there warped the pickguard - but warped it SO badly that when it buckled, it ripped the screws out that were holding the middle pickup. What a waste - it'd probably be $100 or more to fix all that damage. I won't be buying that one...

Welp, it's another
New DLC Day!!!
but only for one song (which helped trigger an Incubus song pack.
*Love Hurts - Incubus
Incubus 3-pack now available too(Wish you were here, Anna Molly, Love Hurts)

Guitar Center's weekly IN-Store deal is for the Schecter Hellraiser Solo-6 @ $385
http://www.guitarcen...eal-g25903t0.gc

Also noticed that BestBuy reloaded their in-store clearance of Musical Instruments. More good deals to be had, just not insanely good;). Saw a couple MIM Fenders that were $130 off; would be good if it weren't for Fender's current sale which has most stores knocking $100 off similar models
Might be a sign that they're finally gonna do away with the MI dept.

I What a waste - it'd probably be $100 or more to fix all that damage.


Could be worth it if they'll drop the price by at least that much and there isn't any other damage

Not sure what was underneath the pick guard. Problem is, it's a road worn pick guard, you'd have to replace that with something else ($40 for an original Fender one). ALL the pickguard AND pick up screws would have to be cored and redrilled. I can't even imagine doing all that...

I saw where BB had restocked a bit. Some of the deals are not as good as the same guitars were in November, but they appear to be more available. May be one or two I'd consider... Will probably wait to see if they drop further. I really need to get a multi effects pedal, at this point. Probably an HD500... They seem to be well reviewed and very versatile.

For the right price and if I liked it enough to keep, I'd just use the ole toothpick+elmers glue trick and be happy.

But yeah, who knows what else may be messed up.

I swear I remember somebody talking about this guitar a while back. Amazon warehouse has the Dean Vendetta XM w/tremolo for $59.05 and $62.33. They are listed as used in good and like new condition, respectively. Not something I'm interested in, but maybe somebody else here would be

Some kind of Guitar Center sponsored NAMM-like show tomorrow in Long Beach, CA, called Musician's Expo. 10 bucks to get in, first of its kind...debating whether it's worth spending the day there as the dealers supposedly will sell stuff there too.

Went to the musicians expo...feel like I paid 20 bucks to enter a supersized guitar center, guess I shouldnt be surprised given it was hosted by them. Best deal was 100 off limited color choices for mim starts :( I actually went hoping to score a decent drum e-kit at a discount but Roland didn't want to give any out, just a free battery pack or something...not that drum kits are exactly portable in the first place. I like the new mystic blue and red fender colors though, very sparkly metallic colors that fade into darker shades pike their midnight colors.

Was thinking of going but had to work part of the day. Sooo, guess I didn't miss much.
Sorta reminds me of some mega-vendor sale at the Shrine maaany years ago. Turned out to be a bunch of swap-meet sellers and a few mom&pop shops who were overpricing most things

Just saw that M123 has the Rogue bass for under 100.
Rogue LX200b http://www.music123....tar?src=ZTP3D8A
The metallic blue is $96
The black is $99

Might be worthwhile as a starter bass

And I'm finally gonna get my Roadrunner graphite case from WWBW. Ordered the damn thing last summer, when they priced'em around $40. Only took'em 8months, + a couple of attempts by them to cancel the order, to get it:roll:
Only put up with it for sooo long cuz it was paid off with store credit (from some of their other screw-ups)
