MF's Stupid Deal of the Day, has been running hourly

http://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid

Deal right now is for the Gibson Firebird Zero, in Blackberry, for $320

http://www.musicians...j45025000001000

-FB Zero deal is good for another 35min

-and the build quality on these is similar to the Gibson M2's, so if you didn't like those you won't like these  :lol:

 

Personally interested, but they gotta get down to the mid 200's for me. 

Maybe BF2018 will be the year they get blown out (if Gibson survives their debtors :-# ).

 

And the Fender L.E. Mustang bass, in surf pearl, is $400 at Adorama

https://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

-using the slickdeals link since I still don't get emails from Adorama

-IIRC, this is 60 less than the last time they were on sale

-and quick refresher: Made in Mexico, pj bass, short-scale, pau ferro fretboard, regular street price is 575

 

UPDATE: as of 01/20/18

Today's Stupid Deal is for the Numark suitcase record player @ $49.  This one:

http://www.musicians...j26338000000000

Look, I know this won't help you with Rocksmith but don't act like you haven't been collecting all those game soundtracks on vinyl.  Here's a simple, compact way to finally play those damn records!

PLAY THOSE RECORDS, dagnabit! And get off my server!

-Numark PT-01 Touring Record Player

-suitcase design

-plays all your 33-1/3, 45 and 78 RPM records, comes with a 45 RPM adapter

-built-in speakers

-Built in rechargeable battery

-USB port and EZ Vinyl/Tape conversion software for archiving vinyl to your computer

 

UPDATE: as of 01/22/18

Today's Stupid Deal is for the G&L tribute Bluesboy @ $300

http://www.musicians...j41403000001000

-different take on the traditional tele

-kinda fitting since G&L is Leo's different take on Fender

-FYI, if you checked earlier today the deal WAS for an Epi Les Paul Pro, but guess it sold out

 

Separately, MF currently has the Gibson M2 in Strawberry Milk @ $279

http://www.musicians...tar?rNtt=gibson m2&index=1

-seems to be the only M2 in stock.  Maybe they did sell ok???

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another deal, "As seen on SD"

https://slickdeals.n...earchBarV2Algo1

Gretsch G5422TG limited edition Electromatic in Cadillac Green Metallic for $650

https://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

-time to work on your psychobilly!

-use coupon code "NAMMPROMO" for discounted price.

-300 savings off current street price

-made in Korea

-Black Top filter tron pickups

That Cadillac Green is a looker, but no idea how you work that one knob with the Bigsby arm in the way, lol

Fender Deal :shock: 

Johnny Marr signature Jaguar @ $1200 in black :hot:

https://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

-Nitro finish

-Bare Knuckle pups

-Johnny Marr 8-)

-and some peeps are saying it comes with a hardshell case (Fender site shows a case)

-this is about 300 off what you can usually find it selling for.

 

Oh, why I gotta be broke-@$- Fuck right now.  Well... I know why but it doesn't make it any easier ;)  :lol: .

And if work won't let you watch videos, here's some reading material:

I am SO tempted by one of these... Which is something I usually don;t say about anything without the F on the headstock...

 

Jackson Monarkh Pro SC guitars - normally $800 for $400 at Adorama. Excuse the SD link - it has the promo codes imbedded.

I like the purple-people-eater most, just sayin :-

 

For anyone curious how much of a good deal this may be... compare those Jackson's to a new model that Fender(Squier) unveiled during NAMM.

Squier Contemporary Active Stratocaster HH @ $400

https://www.sweetwat...h-olympic-white

Not to knock the Squier but I'd rather have the Jackson for the same kinda $$$.

 

And here's some more info on the contemporary squiers

Also, if any of you were lucky during the GREAT AKAI and BEST BUY CLEARANCE EXTRAVAGANZAS a few years ago  :- Holeyboard is having a sale on a Standard Holeyboard AND hard case combo for $249 ($100 off of normal). These pedal boards are nice because... well... they're holey... You don't have to Fuck up the bottoms of your pedals with velcro. You can just zip tie the pedal in place and cut the ties if you want to swap them out...

Got an email from CME about a sale:  15%off Gibson Memphis guitars.  Use code "GIBSUNDAY15"

-considering the code,  I'll guess the code only works today, Sunday :lol:

-only seeing one ES-175 and one ES-335.  The rest are ES-339 guitars

1959 ES-175 in vintage burst

https://www.chicagom...r-model/6735001

Late sixties ES-335 in light burst

https://www.chicagom...r-model/6735214

 

The lowest priced models are the studio ES-339's

ES-339 studio gingerburst @ $761 (after coupon)

https://www.chicagom...r-model/6594021

ES-339 studio wine red @ $761 (after coupon)

https://www.chicagom...r-model/6609616

The other ES-339's on sale were the Satin Ebony, Sunset Burst and Faded Cherry.

 

Oh, if you were looking at Gibson Custom shop models... CME also got some in.  They're not part of the Gibsunday sale, but I have a feeling you could still get about 10%off the price if you ask real nice ;)

There are a few cool ES-336 models, but I would rather drop that kinda coin on nice ES-330

----------               ----------               ----------

Music & Arts has a sale on ALL guitar strings, 15%off with code "SALE15"

https://www.musicart...id=7697&ipp=100

----------               ----------               ----------

Eastwood Guitars has a Valentine's day sale, 14%off everything sitewide with code "LOVE14"

https://eastwoodguit...ections/guitars

I like the twin-tone, but kinda curious to see the Bowie model that Supro is gonna release.  Though I doubt I'd buy either unless they got the big discount/deal from late last year.

Eastwood's twin-tone

https://eastwoodguit...e-twin-tone-dlx

Supro's new Bowie version

https://suprousa.com/bowie-dual-tone/

----------               ----------               ----------

FYI:  noticed that Alto Music got some Supro's back in stock.

Supro Jamesport in blue @ $299

https://www.altomusi...n-blue-metallic

Supro Westbury in blue @ $350

https://www.altomusi...electric-guitar

Alto Music still does 10% back in Altobucks. But no more free case deal from Supro.

Fretlight  FG-5 with built-in lighted learning system for $80 (in black)

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

-deal is good for another 7hrs

-you'll hafta figure out if it's worth it to you.

Vintage Burst https://www.american...IB-LPTRFL-V5CH1

And Eastwood Guitars sent out an email about another new build/preorder:

Backlund Rockerbox

http://eastwoodcusto...BACKLUND BUYERS

RockerBox1-845x315.jpeg

-this model was, by FAR, my favorite when the whole Retronix kickstarter happened years ago.  The potential to bring this one to life was a tiny part of my desire to back that very first Backlund guitar.  But that price... da-yum! Don't know if I can make myself THAT stupid.

-$1399 total price; 200 deposit prior to 03/31/18 gets you a free custom hardshell case.

-3 color schemes planned; red/cream, blue/cream & black/mint (check out the Backlund 100's for an idea of the colors)

https://backlundguit...ant=24170744515

-semihollow maple body, mahogany neck, 24 3/4" scale

-in the prototype stage so some of this may change.  You can cancel for a full refund anytime prior to 04/30/18

Gonna need a mighty powerful bonus/tax refund/powerball tix/all of the above, if I want one.

 

To be fair, the price is about right for import semihollows but man, this is tough when Johnny Marr Jag's are sitting out there for 1200.  Yeah, yeah... not exactly an equal comparison (animals vs rocketships, you know) but still...

 

FYI, they are also doing a take on the Moderne

http://eastwoodcusto...stwood-moderne/

moderneupdate-845x341.jpg

-$599 total price; requires 150 deposit

-basswood body, maple neck

-natural finish

Heads Up!  Amp deal at Sweetwater.

Blackstar HT Club 40 @ $360 (bronco tan limited edition) :hot:

https://www.sweetwat...ail/HTCLUB40CBT

-40% savings from regular street price

-since this is a limited edition model, they probably won't get more in stock (though maybe other stores will start discounting their inventory, so watch for that).

-40 watt, tube amp with a 12" Celestion speaker

-this is one of those amp deals that you gotta decide if you want to jump now, cuz it probably won't be around for too long

-this is also a fairly good sized amp, weight and size wise. Plan accordingly; Won't be easy to hide from your significant other :lol:

 

Other amp deal, isn't as hot, but still good

Fender '68 custom Princeton Reverb @ $950 and get a $200 gift card good towards a future purchase

https://www.sweetwat...il/PrinceRev68N

-nets out to a good deal on a Fender amp, but yeah... you'd hafta do a future purchase to benefit from it.

-also, only good on the electric blue flavor
