Current PSN sale has Rocksmith 2014 :ps4: on sale.  Noticed it while buying a couple other games.

Price isn't showing for me as I already own it. But think it's:

 

$16 for PS+ members

$20 for nonPS+

https://store.playst...S2014REMASTERED

 

Also new Supro deals at Sam Ash.

https://www.samash.com/s/term/s!4!pro

-Westbury, in black or white, @ $330

-Hampton, in black or flametop sunburst @ $400

-And if you happen to have picked up a Supro guitar from a prior sale, they have the guitar case at a respectable $60

 

And the rest of the 4th of July deals

Fender Duo-Sonic in Lake Placod blue for $360 @ Adorama...


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

Been a while, but Adorama has the Duo-Sonic on sale again.  Same $360 price, same color

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

 

Really like these and the Mustangs. But want a different color. 

If an article I read is any indication, the colors I'd want will never drop this low in price [insert]SadPanda[endofline].

New Sam Ash sale. Save 13% on select items with code "LUCKY13"

https://www.samash.c.../sam-ash-sale!/

And while it doesn't show, the code has been stacking with those Supros guitars(see above).

Plus saw some Schecter's and Kramer's that might be worth a look-see.

 

Also worth mentioning, that we should be getting close to SamAsh's annual Gibson sale.  They tend to get a few models in, on discount, around August. 

Though, who knows what they'll have, especially after the cleansing Gibson went thru last year :lol:

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

PSA Time:  gonna be a few new signature guitars from Epiphone.

Time to cut out the chocalate milk, if you want any of these.

Slash Firebird in trans-black, for $900

-no case

-and if the specs are correct, it's a glued-in neck (not neck-thru)... really??? =; .  Wouldn't be as annoyed if they hadn't recently made the Bonamassa FB.  This just means they're charging an extra 400 to have Slash's silk-screened signature :bs:

-Sweetwater has preorders going

https://www.sweetwat...anslucent-black

John Lee Hooker Zephyr, for $1000(maybe???)

-fairly new annoucement from Summer NAMM

-price is still iffy as  there's no official page up... yet. But here's a vid from premier guitar

-Epiphone rep mentions it comes with a case and thinks the price is $1,000

Bonamassa ES-355, price unknown

-even less info on this one other than the pic JB released on twitter, which he did a long time ago.

DcTcKN2UQAATe4N.jpg

-two versions of the guitar. One with block inlays; the other with Bonamassa inlaid on the fretboard

-Looks like this one will get released sometime in 2019

Fender deals, as seen on SD... courtesy of Adorama's site (phew, that's a mouthful).

*need to use coupon code "SUMMERHEAT"  or code "SUMMERTIME"

 

-American Professional strat in surf pearl, for $1,000 (after coupon code)

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

-American Special strat in mystic seafoam, for $700 (after coupon code)

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

And then there's the lonely Gretsch deal

-Gretsch Streamliner G2655t in walnut, for $320

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

 

FYI:  the Pro comes with a molded hardshell case. 

The Special does not, but it does have Texas special pups and the ever funky, embiggen'd headstock. 8-)

 

Guess it's good that I'm the weirdo who doesn't get along with SSS strats, or else the Pro woulda been mine already... surf pearl :drool:

Thanks Frosty for keeping this thread going. Gives me something else to spend money on other than games. And on that note, I missed out on the last strap sale...needing to find a comfortable new strap soon

MF's Stupid deal of the Day

Gibson SG special, "T" variant, in sunburst for $699

https://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid

https://www.musician...k35286000002001

Gator guitar seat/stand for $50, @ Proaudiostar

http://www.proaudios...o.html#features

-looks a bit flimsy, but says it's rated to 300 lbs.

 

Indio Cali classic strat, in red, for $63.xx

https://www.amazon.c...&keywords=indio

-this should be one of the Monoprice guitars, but it says shipped and sold by Amazon and it's a "Stage Right" product

-might just be a description goof-up, but I'll still throw out ... buyer beware.

is that SG as good of a deal as i think it is?? i'm about to dust off the ol' credit card but already have 2 other guitars i haven't played in ages.

 

i'm thinking about that guitar seat, too. i'd rather get up off the couch when i play and don't feel like standing.

If past history is any indication, then you probably won't see this drop below $599, new.  And that would likely happen next year, if there's still inventory.

Fairly consistent rule of thumb for Gibsons is as follows:

-max discount is around 40% off the initial street price

-but this tends to happen about 2 years after release and you're at the mercy of whatever inventory is left over.

 

So if you're really lusting after an SG with full-size humbuckers then do it now.  Otherwise, wait to see what's behind Door#2 (and see if Sam Ash comes thru with some more Gibson closeouts).

The whole bankruptcy protection deal may screw all of this up, but I guess we'll find out soon enough if we see those big discounts next month.

Good luck!

Does a copy of Rocksmith need to be new, or can I buy a used copy for the console versions? I'd like to try this out, and I have a cable I picked up at a garage sale, but no game yet.

GS wouldn't take Rocksmith in on trades for the longest time.  Not sure if that's ever changed.

The game was just a shiny coaster if you didn't have a functioning RS cable.

 

At least now they patched in the option to turn off note tracking ( I swear I read they did that; hope I'm right, lol ).  I wonder if you can bypass the initial setup prompts without an RS cable.

Couch Guitar Straps Flash Sale on CAMERA straps; 35% off

https://www.couchgui...era-straps.html

-sale ends this Thursday, at midnight

-I know this sale isn't for guitar straps, but I always thought you could make one of these camera straps work for a small instrument, like a Uke or something similar.

Or maybe... be all crazy and use it for an actual camera (no, your phone doesn't count) :razz: 

-full disclosure; never tried this myself so... yeah good luck.

I have the Xbox 360 version. Does that cable work across other platforms? Can I use the same cable on say Xbox one or PS4 if I get the games there or do I need a different cable as well? Bought this as a gift for my dad ages ago and now he's kind of beyond it, but I'm also kind of beyond Xbox 360

Is this about the cheapest this gets? I bought a Starcaster acoustic-electric years ago, inspired by my love of The Mountain Goats, but never learned to play it. I've heard this is a good way to learn. That actually true, or just bullshit?

It's a good way to learn certain songs and get used to note/chord placement. You won't magically know how to play a song you hear on the radio, and you probably won't write your own music.

OG Rocksmith isn't as good as Rocksmith 2014.  You need the expensive Real Tone adapter to play any of them on a console. PC can use a patch and a cheap adapter plugged into line-in.

You can also use a mic with an acoustic if you don't have the RT cable.  Just do it.  Totally worth it.

that's pretty much all I'm looking for. Enough to get some familiarity to noodle around further.

 

I'd rather do it on a console, but apparently those cables are some real garbage too, tons of reviews on amazon saying they crap out after a few months. So that's cool

Instrument cables, in general crap out from use.  The RS cable is no different.

 

An instrument coupler like this:

https://www.amazon.c...1534456236&sr=3

Plus a regular instrument cable like this:

https://www.amazon.c...ds=guitar cable

Should ensure the RS cable keeps working for a very long time.

-keep the RS cable next to your system and run the coupler+regular cable from there to your guitar and your done. Should never need to touch (or move) the RS cable again.

 

I did this setup about a week after buying the original Rocksmith and I'm still using the original RS cable w/out issues (over 6 years now).  The regular instrument cable though... well, I've had to switch that out a few times.  :lol:

Thanx for the tip. I still have the 1/4 cable that came with the guitar and I've never used. Got that coupler with the RS cable and the game on PSN.

Fender Duo-Sonic, in surf green, for $329 (after coupon)

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

-courtesy of Adorama, via a SD'r

-coupon code "SUMMERHEAT"

-made in Mexico Fender, with two singlecoil pups and Pau Ferro fretboard. 24" scale guitar

 

That's as low as I've ever seen for a new model (of any of these Duo-Sonics or Mustangs), so worth jumping on it if you like it.

And seeing as it's a 24" scale, you'll either love how easy it feels to play or think it's too loose/sloppy. If you want to tighten things up, then put on some higher gauge strings.

i can confirm that yes, you can just select "unconnected" and play along that way

 

seems kinda pointless, but you can do it

A little late to the party, but here's a nice deal on a Wildkat

Epiphone L.E. Wildkat studio, for $250

https://www.guitarce...ctric-Guitar.gc

-goldtop model, with darker, natural back

-p90 pups

-no bigsby on the studios (probably a blessing in disguise)

 

Damn good price for a good semi-hollow, but I'll stick with my swingster 8-) ... though all bets are off if this somehow gets down into the stupid price range, like the Hofner 6-sting deal. =P~

Looking for some help with dlc problems. It’s been quite some time since I’ve played RS. I think tonight may have been the first time on my X. But everything I had was on an external drive and that external is plugged in to the new console. None of my dlc is showing up in the game now. If I go to the store and click on something I own I will get the message that I own it and can manage the item from my games and apps section on the Xbox. This is the message that you get when something IS installed, with the message saying you own this would you like to install it if you don’t have it installed. In addition to that, if I click on the game and go to manage games and add ons, I have a big old long list of things that are supposedly installed but don’t show up in the game.
