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: .

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.

Guitar Center's Daily Pick deal is for the:

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.

 

American Musical has a few Gibson deals

Les Paul Tribute Future, for lefties, @ $600

Wine Red https://www.american...IB-LPTRFL-W5CH1

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

Les Paul Studio 60's Tribute @ $799

Natural finish https://www.american...IB-DSVF16-VACH1

Limited Edition non-Reverse Firebird @ $849

Vintage Copper https://www.american...-DSNRFF16-CVBC1

 

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

Heads Up!  Amp deal at Sweetwater.

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

 

 

FYI!  Same amp available thru ProAudioStar for $370

http://www.proaudios...ue-club-40.html

-the Sweetwater deal didn't last too long, so same may happen here

-remember to try Price Matching at other stores (MusiciansFriend, GuitarCenter, etc..  Might get a better deal or at least extend the life of this deal.

-and ProAudioStar is also selling it thru reverb.com and amazon marketplace, but at higher prices

Slickdeals has a post on these "A" frame guitar stands: https://www.amazon.c...T&ie=UTF8&psc=1

-priced at $6.99, but they are a Add-On item (guess you could buy 4 to meet the threshold)

 

Anyway, it got me looking around to see what else is out there and found this:

Sale on Epiphone and Gibson guitars

https://www.amazon.c...=price-asc-rank

Nothing too crazy good but did find this:

Gibson Les Paul Custom Special @ 360

https://www.amazon.c...6:ATVPDKIKX0DER

-temporarily out of stock, but still orderable 

Pretty sure the one they're selling is this one

http://www.gibson.co...px#LPSS117EBCH3

-so, everything is USA made and USA parts (not like the M2 series)

 

And also saw they have the Marshall DSL40c amp on sale for $549.99

https://www.amazon.c...20532212&sr=1-1

-the 2018 Marshall line was just released so this is probably a clear-out of old inventory. -some argue this is the better choice over the Blackstar amp I posted earlier, but that argument seems to always revolve around the ability to mod the amp. If that's not a concern, then go with the one you like more.

Finally some lefty love! Been eyeing the Gibson LP Studio for some time now ($749 now). Surprised to see these 2013 models still around. Figured the last new inventory around 6 months ago would’ve been the last of them. My local Sam Ash carries 0 lefties in stock. I’d love to be able to just hold it...mmhmm.

St Patty's Day sales at a few spots.

 

Eastwood Guitars has 20% off green guitars (code "BIGGREEN")

https://eastwoodguit...(Auto-Updating)

The greenburst Sidejack is pretty cool

https://eastwoodguit...ant=34599875908

The mandocaster was priced better during the blackfriday sale

https://eastwoodguit...cts/mandocaster

 

Chicago Music Exchange has a 15% off sale

https://www.chicagom..._eid=24f0d9534d

If you missed out on some of the prior sales, on the ES guitars, they've got a few that qualify again; ES-339, ES-335 and some Custom Shop (remember to look for "floor model" description)

https://www.chicagom...392b0-381605109

 

And Reverb.com has a 15% off sale

https://reverb.com/s...tricks-day-sale

Some of the CME stuff is on here too. But you're also gonna see inventory from other vendors.

Yeah, Gibson is tracking down every piece of unsold inventory.  

Even Chicago Music got a new batch of ES guitars, mostly 2017 models.  Best of that bunch were a Goldtop 335 (with the dark back), a Pelham Blue 335 and a White 355.  Don't think they're even gonna bother posting them to the website considering how quick they are selling.

 

BTW, always thought the white LP studio was a sweet model.  But guess I have bad taste since it's the only flavor left.

I seem to have a special talent for choosing the less desirable colors/models :lol: . Those treasure Firebirds got announced and I knew the gold one was for me (single pup FB that reminded me a bit of the Elliot Easton Tikibird).  But the sunburst sold out first.  Now that I've had it for a while I kinda want a sunburst one just to drop a P90 into it.  The resale pricing is stupid though

How 'bout that... they're down to $1150.  I woulda bought this at 1200, if it was the psycho orange.

Just drop it to an even grand and I'll settle for the black (pretty please) :drool:

 

 

Well thanks a lot! Couldn’t resist.

Congrats! :beer:

And also saw they have the Marshall DSL40c amp on sale for $549.99

https://www.amazon.c...20532212&sr=1-1

-the 2018 Marshall line was just released so this is probably a clear-out of old inventory. -some argue this is the better choice over the Blackstar amp I posted earlier, but that argument seems to always revolve around the ability to mod the amp. If that's not a concern, then go with the one you like more.

Amp dropped down to $500

Greetings, I'm interested to play this game, and I have a friend that is selling the 2 Epiphone Les Paul Juniors that came with Rocksmith (the black one and the black/orange, sunburst if im not mistaken), but as far as I know these guitar that came in these bundles were right handed. My main question and concern is can I flip the strings so it can be left handed or it's already designed to only be right handed?

I really appreciate the help, thank you very much

Technically I guess you could flip the strings, but if you’re going to do that you should really be flipping the nut around too because there are notches in the nut that are sized for the strings in order. It’s not unheard of to do, but I wouldn’t suggest bothering with it on a budget guitar like that. You’d be better off just getting a lefty guitar (unless he’s just selling them crazy cheap, in which case go ahead and buy them and just look up some instructional videos on YouTube on how to swap your nut). Keep in mind that flipping the guitar is also going to put your switches and knobs in the wrong places.

^ What jsivley said.

 

It's doable but probably not worth it.

Might be easier to try learning to play it as a righty instead of flipping it around.  If you haven't done it yet, try playing it as a righty and see if you feel good with it.  If not, then focus on getting a lefty guitar.

 

Here's what you're facing:

-leave the guitar as-is and just flip it

Doing this means the strings will be in the opposite order to what Rocksmith will display, control knobs are in the wrong place and No cutaway to reach the higher frets on the guitar.

-pay to have the guitar set-up for a lefty

Spending more than what the guitar is worth (most likely).  Control knobs are still in the wrong place and No cutaway for the higher frets

-buy a lefty guitar

May be more than what you'd want to spend but it'll be a better experience... that is, unless you think you could get comfortable playing a righty guitar.

 

These may not be high-end models, but they tend to get solid reviews and aren't too pricey.  Quality of these would be about the same as those Epi les paul jr's:

Lefty SX strat clone in pink for $80

http://www.rondomusi...roduct2132.html

Lefty tele clone in red for $120

http://www.rondomusi...roduct9655.html

Lefty les paul clone (7/8 scale) for $100

http://www.rondomusi...se2kpinklh.html

 

The strat is 24.75" scale (aka gibson scale) and the tele is 25.5" scale (aka fender scale).

The les paul is a short scale at 23".

Guessing they're on sale because of the pink color, but even so that's damn cheap for a lefty guitar.

 

They have other colors on the site if you want to poke around.  Those are just the first few ones I found on their sale page. Here's all their lefty models:

Good luck.

I didn't have time to post yesterday, but hopefully some of you figured out how to stack the 15% ebay coupon with the $400 sale price of the Marshall amp.  Woulda put it around $340, with free shipping from Sweetwater's ebay front.

 

If not, well... knock back a few and forget i said anything. :beer:  :beer:  :beer:
