Alto Music is now selling the Supro Jamesport for $299 (white, bronze, blue) :hot:

https://www.altomusi...uitar-in-bronze

This is the single pup model; think "LP junior". Bronze was a C.M.E. exclusive, but guess that don't matter now, lol.

-the Altobucks promo is still active; use promo code ALTOBUCKS15 to 15% credit on a future purchase

-today is the last "safe" day to also take advantage of the Supro $130 coupon promo. Purchase must be made between 09/01 - 12/01

__________          __________          __________

 

Got my Squier baby Mustang today.  Went with seafoam 8-)

kULK9dk.jpg?1

Good solid build, tuners holding firm and decent tone variety between the two pups and the tone knob.

So it's holding true as a good choice in this $100+ price range.

 

Only gripes are

-about four fret ends (just enough edge to them that you can feel with your fingertips)

-grimey/dirty frets. Might be the strings but won't hurt to polish the frets up while I do the re-string

I was going to go with my normal 10's and fully expected it to feel more slinky (due to it being a short scale guitar). But I may need to go out and buy 11's (think the current strings on there now are 10's).

 

Also got to try out the Ashdown amp, beyond just music streaming.

It's firmly in the practice/tabletop amp category, which is fine by me. If I want to rattle the walls, I'll hook up some extension cabinets or powered monitors.

TonRrtO.jpg?1qSHSxIE.jpg?1

(Pay no mind to the saran wrap... it's keeping the glossy faceplate safe from dirty looks)

KbB9vDq.jpg?1

All the wireless connections plus the ability to accept bass and guitar inputs at the same time were the big draws for me.  Streaming music and connecting to a pc are bonuses.

So far, nice clean and clear sounds at all volume levels. Think it's a keeper (@$200, 650-NoThxU).

 

Actually lucky it works at all, considering the condition of the box

It was trashed all over.  That hole on the "AL" of B-SOCIAL woulda been scary if it had been on the speaker side of the amp.

 

So what did the Great Omnipotent Turkey get you???

Sam Ash sent out an email with deals on ESP ltd guitars.

I think a couple of these were already up on the site.  But some look like new choices... I think.

 

Here's the link to the sale page (ESP guitars are about halfway down):

http://www.samash.co.../bf2017specials

 

And here are a few direct links:

-ESP LTD m-50fr @ $199 (neon green or neon orange)

http://www.samash.co...tar-em50frxxx-p

-ESP LTD mh-100qm @ $249

http://www.samash.co...uitar-emh100qbc

-ESP LTD sn-200ht @ $269

http://www.samash.co...tar-esn200hrs-p

Plus a couple bass guitars:

-ESP LTD f-104 @ $299 (4 string bass in black)

http://www.samash.co...-bass-ef104blkx

-ESP LTD f-155dx @ $299 (5 string bass in purple or walnut)

http://www.samash.co...-bass-ef155dxxx

 

UPDATE:

Guitar Center is running an "IN-Cart Pricing" promo.  Must add item to cart, to see the discounted price.

http://www.guitarcen...urrencyCode=USD

Bunch of different Squiers and Fenders are in the sale.  But everything I checked was only getting a 15% discount.  Damn they're stingy (or am I too cheap, lol).

 

UPDATE #2:

New addition to the Alto Music sale:

Daisy Rock Skulls&Flowers guitar for $100

https://www.altomusi...kulls-and-roses

I would so Fuck 'n rock the isht out of this guitar.  I mean, seriously... it's got Fuck 'n pink skulls!

I don't care if it's a sticker, it's-a-pink-skull-paisley guitar... if only it wasn't for that damn neck (I know I would hate that slim & narrow neck).

-qualifies for the Alto Bucks promo, so you get 15% credit good towards a future purchase

-they still have the DigiTech Luxe pedal in stock @ $50

https://www.altomusi...ic-detune-pedal

-they also have the Ampeg Classic Analog Bass preamp pedal @ $80

https://www.altomusi...ss-preamp-pedal

 

Daisy Rock is sorta/kinda BFF with Schecter Guitars, just geared more towards girls.  They try to make their guitars lighter and/or the necks more comfortable for girls to play.  Quality can be hit or miss

 

UPDATE #3: as of 12/07/17

Sam Ash added new Supro models to their sale page.  Same link as before but here it is anyway:

http://www.samash.co...2017guitardeals

 

-Supro Hampton @ $400 (the third "Island" series guitar; Gotta catch'em ALL!)

BLUE Hampton - http://www.samash.co...uitar-s2030bmxx

WHITE Hampton - http://www.samash.co...uitar-s2030awxx

 

And the following are the "Americana" series models

-Supro Martinique @ $500

http://www.samash.co...tar-s1593ewxx-p

-Supro Coronado II @ $450

http://www.samash.co...tar-s1582vjbx-p

-Supro Black Holiday @ $400

http://www.samash.co...tar-s1575jbxx-p

-Supro Sahara @ $300

http://www.samash.co...tar-s1570wbxx-p

-Supro Belmont @ $300

http://www.samash.co...tar-s1572swxx-p

Need to call in for some of these, until they update the website.

 

Sadly, there's no Supro coupon or spacebucks promo to stack with purchase. [insert Price is Right fail horn here]

This deserves a post, all by it's lonesome...

 

Gibson ES-335 studio for $850 :hot:

https://reverb.com/i...rst-floor-model

Look, I get that it's a studio and it's Gingerburst (blegh, ick), but... it's a 335 for $850! :hot:  :hot:  :hot:

 

Floor model sold by Chicago Music Exchange, thru Reverb. I've posted about these floor models before but you can call CME up direct and ask them about it.  They'll even process the order by phone. This should be just like the other Gibson floor models they've been selling off. Call and they'll fill you in on the details

 

UPDATE: as of 12/09/17

Pro Audio Land has a very low-key promo going on right now.  Got an email from them titled "Stupid Deals are Junk"

* point is to submit an offer on a piece of gear you want and see what they reply

- I said I wanted a new Twin Reverb amp for under a grand, shipped.  They came back with an offer under $1200

John-Cena-Not-Bad.gif?fit=290%2C234&ssl=

 

Anyway, check your email or...

submit an email to info@proaudioland.com , make sure the subject line reads "Stupid Deals are Junk" and submit your Stupid (cheapass) deal request

 

UPDATE #2:

Musicians Friend has a Holiday Doorbuster sale going (no clue when it started, lol)

http://www.musicians...urrencyCode=USD

Stuff ranges from accessories, instruments, amps, etc.  Some of it looks like normal pricing, some of it does look cheaper.

 

Here's some stuff I noticed:

-Squier Bullett HSS strat @ $120

http://www.musicians...electric-guitar

-Epi Les Paul Special I with P90's @ $119

http://www.musicians...electric-guitar

-Epi Wildkats @ $319

http://www.musicians...electric-guitar

-Ashdown B-Social amp @ $250

http://www.musicians...-bass-combo-amp

 

And one more item

-Ashdown ABM 115 NEO bass cabinet @ $370

http://www.musicians...m#productDetail

I'd like to say it's a good pairing for the B-Social amp, but I can't seem to find any reviews on the damn thing.  Best I found was someone happy that's it's sooo lightweight, lol.  My google-fu is not strong today :-?

Amazon Games has Rocksmith for $9 (download only, for PC) :pc: 

https://www.amazon.c...d/dp/B009GKT2W2

NOTE:  this is for the old version of RS.  This is NOT for RS2014 or the Remastered versions.  Even so,

-you're getting 50+ songs

-Guitar & Bass tracks

-and I think you can still import these songs into RS2014, paying the one-time import fee (not 100% certain though)

Damn... Just started Rocksmith for the first time in a while. I have like $80 of DLC that I want...

I was reading back through this thread when the Best Buy music store extravaganza was happening along with some insane Amazon sales and all the crazy price matching with MF’s certificates and Music123 23% PMs. That was an insane time to be in this thread. 😁

Can anyone recommend an affordable entry level guitar for the game? I have had Rocksmith in the backlog for so long and thinking about having my 10yo give it go.

Any of the $99 ish Epiphone Les Paul or Squire Strats will do a serviceable job for a first timer. Make sure you have a strap and picks to start.

On the topic of entry level guitars, is there any reason anyone would recommend against getting a 3/4 or 7/8 size guitar?  Will it be able to do everything the game needs?

The game will recognize both just fine. If you are a full sized adult you may have trouble playing on a 3/4 size guitar though. I helped a friend’s kid get a 3/4 strat when he was about 8 years old and it was just about perfect at the time. I’ve played on it a bit and it’s servicable but not the best experience. And I’m not really a big guy at only 5’9”. The kid is now almost 11 and already clamoring to get a full size.

A 7/8 on the other hand, should be just fine. I’ve got a 7/8 Explorer and if I didn’t have a full size Explorer to compare it to, I don’t think I would have ever known the difference

I can’t imagine playing a 7/8 is much different from playing a Jaguar or something. The shorter scale length, for me, is noticeable, but not bothersome. It takes me a song or so to “realign” my finger position.

The Deans recommended way back when this thread first started are still solid choices too; Dean Vendetta (xmt or xm).

Biggest issue may be finding them for $100, let alone sub-100.

 

If you can stretch the budget a bit, take a look at the Jacksons on sale at Adorama.  Slickdeals has a post:

https://slickdeals.n...earchBarV2Algo1

 

Thinking in particular about the JS Monarkh for $150

You might encounter problems with intonation... moreso with the 3/4.  I'd try finding reviews on the model you're thinking of buying.  See if people complain much about it.  

 

The game doesn't know if you're using a 3/4, 7/8 or full-scale guitar.  All it looks for is the correct note and that's where tuning & intonation will matter most. 

 

I can’t imagine playing a 7/8 is much different from playing a Jaguar or something. The shorter scale length, for me, is noticeable, but not bothersome. It takes me a song or so to “realign” my finger position.

That's because you're working from "fender scale". Hopping down from the strat must make the Jag feel like a toy :-({|= ;)

 

Now us "Gibson scale" players are in the sweetspot 8-)  :bouncy:  :-P  :wave:

For those of you close enough to a Guitar Center to warrant it, the String Club thing works great. I've actually been better about restringing my axes because I get a new set of strings every month. I've just been picking up sets that are close to the $5 - usually Fender Super Bullets. I'm not much of a string snob - except the Elixirs I bought for my Taylor acoustic. Also picked up an Ernie Ball Power Peg and it made restringing MUCH quicker.

 

I've been playing the last couple of nights and had really forgotten how fun it is to play. Maybe it'll spur my writing again. I had been in a bit of a rut since Tom Petty died. Too sad to write...

 

First Rocksmith DLC hint of the year tomorrow!

So, that Hofner guitar...  Guitar Center posted a black finished model @ $120 :shock:  :hot:  :hot:  :hot: 

http://www.guitarcen...424281256312.gc

I mean, I thought the old 230 price was good, this is now in the "Stupid, I'm losing money if I don't buy it" price.

 

Get it and just walk around everywhere with it.  Tie a simple string to it, strap it to your back and be known as the violin dude.  Then when people hear about violin dude, they're gonna go see what's up. 

 

Only when they see you, they'll be all WTF???  That's a violin, but it's a guitar.

 

It's like that time you saw Luke drink blue milk.  Then you see how he gets the milk and you go "Whaaaaaat". You know George isn't involved anymore, but that just happened... it's like that.

It was $120 a couple of hours ago but I got the same result you did when you tried to add it to your cart. I tried re-adding it a couple of times, hoping for a miracle, but it didn't work. None were in stock at stores near me either.

That hofner shows $400 for me. When I add it to cart I get an error that it was removed because it’s unavailable

Wait, it already sold out??? :lol:

 

I did a test order before posting just to see if it was legit.  That sucks. 

I was looking forward to peeps buying and showing off the awesomeness (and making me regret passing on it)

 

Maybe they have some in a local store... it's been part of their Clearance sale.

EDIT: the in-store bit is YMMV

Did any CAG get lucky?

 

UPDATE:  as of 01/06/18

Guitar Center's Daily Deal is for a two-pack of Fender instrument cables @ $20

http://www.guitarcen...m/Daily-Pick.gc

FYI, simple way to remove the stress on your RS cable is to use a 1/4" mono coupler and regular instrument cable with the RS cable.  Instrument cables are way easier and cheaper to replace than the RS cable.

New Guitar Center  Daily Deal

Musician's Gear LP Case for $50

http://www.guitarcen...m/Daily-Pick.gc

-solid case, for  Les Paul shaped guitars

-you could also pair it up with the deal at MF

 

Musician's Friend "Stupid Deal"

Gibson M2 in bright Cherry for  $300

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid

-to refresh your memory, this model was an Amazon exclusive for a little bit back in 2016.  Quality was all over the place; some were fine, some needed work.  You can see the reviews (at Amazon and MF) and get a better idea.

-USA "made" guitar (Chinese hardware, USA body and all assembled in the USA).

 

UPDATE:

Haven't checked Nao's twitter feed in a long time and noticed this link.

Anyone else remember Audrey??? The cute little kid that was starting out on Rocksmith?  Her parents would post vids on the official RS forums from time to time.  Pretty neat and inspirational... back then.

 

Now, it shows how far behind I am, smh. :oldman: (old, I feel)

 

But hey, looks like she upgraded her axe. 8-)

So, that Hofner guitar...  Guitar Center posted a black finished model @ $120 :shock:  :hot:  :hot:  :hot: 

http://www.guitarcen...424281256312.gc

I mean, I thought the old 230 price was good, this is now in the "Stupid, I'm losing money if I don't buy it" price.

GO, GO, GO! :bouncy:

Black model is back up at $120

 

Hurry, before the lurkers beat you to it! :razz:

 

UPDATE:

Stupid Amazon algorithm...

recommended this to me

I'm not surprised this exists. But it's one thing to think it exists and KNOW it exists, sigh.

If I go down, I'm taking one of you with me.

I was wondering why they disappeared so quickly. I have been stalking the clearance page for the past week. I saw the guitar pop up at 12:08 CT. I placed an order and started having issues seeing it in stock around 12:20 CT. Having it posted here would explain why.

Did anyone's order go through the last time around?

Any opinion on the Mitchell TD400? If the order for the Hofner doesn't go through, ~$175 for the TD400 may be a possibility.

Edit: My order was canceled this morning.

Nah, there's something screwy about the deal for it to disappear so quickly... again.

 

Beginning to think they are selling display models from their b&m sites;  they just post them as they get shipped back to corporate. And since there's such little inventory at the 120 price, they sell out super quick.

 

It's the only thing that makes sense to me, considering they have inventory to sell... @ $400 =;

 

Your order might have been the only one in stock. 

 

If anyone did get it, post about the condition. 

Would still be a good deal, unless it arrives completely trashed.  IF it is call and get replacements.  Just because it's clearance, doesn't mean they should be used/abused (they sure weren't advertised that way).

Huh. That's a full size, right? Why'd they go with a violin-style body?

Yeah, the 6-string with the violin body was a surprise to me too.

 

I know they've made the "beatle bass" forever, but don't know about these.

Maybe they had some leftover inventory and pulled their best Dr. Frankenstrat.  Or this is a marketing gimmick to play off the popularity of the beatle bass. 

 

Anyway, it's up again @ $120. Same black finish model

http://www.guitarcen...424281256312.gc

This is just weird...

 

UPDATE:

Today's "Stupid Deal" is for the Vox volume effects pedal @ $60

I feel as if I need to own this guitar for all the hassle it is giving me.

My order from yesterday was backordered and canceled this morning. I just submitted another order for it again using the 15off coupon.

If this order goes through, $110 for that baby.

New Guitar Center spacebucks promo

http://www.guitarcen....gc?icid=410355

-initial purchase must be made from 01/11/18 to 01/14/18

-spacebucks will be delivered between 2/27-2/28

-spacebucks expire on 03/07/18

 

Also noticed this on the front page:

BEM bluetooth speaker for $20

http://www.guitarcen...500000024679.gc

-seems like a decent price for a wireless, portable speaker

 

And Chicago Music Exchange, "MAY" get more Gibson "floor models".  They would not be the Memphis line-up, so it sorta opens things up to either seeing more solid bodies or perhaps even acoustics.  Just have to keep checking to see if it happens.

 

UPDATE:

Hey Slash fans, there's a new Epiphone signature guitar:

Slash's Anaconda Burst @ $899

SX8NaojP9Hvg6zKXUpM4nf-320-80.jpg

-Projected release date of May 2018

-modeled after the Gibson anaconda burst he had (last year???)

-standard pro les paul

-Seymor Duncan "Slash" pups

-ebony fretboard

-there's also a limited run of hand-signed guitars (for 1,199) and these will have a case and strap (see above pic)

Here's sweetwater's link for more details

UPDATE: 01/14/18
