The standout for me would be the irig 2 from Sam ash for $25 http://www.samash.co...tCatEntryType=2 Cheapest I've seen it, although I have seen it for that price on eBay. If I hadn't already been dropping so much cash lately I'd get it. Been wanting a better way to record onto my phone

Sam Ash also has the Scarlett 2i2 recording interface for $99. This thing is pretty much the standard for recording into a computer. It is a solid $149 all the time. First time I've ever seen a sale on it. Probably picking it up today...

Sigh... think I went 2 years without buying gear.  That melody maker though...

 

EDIT: got one in TV Yellow :bouncy: .  I'll post pics once I get the chance.

Cyber Monday deals are pretty much the same as the BF deals.  At least, I'm not noticing anything different (big surprise)

 

BestBuy still has Rocksmith 2014 for $35 ($28 if you have GCU) :xb1:  :ps4:

http://www.bestbuy.c...s=960&keys=keys

This should be the game+cable bundle, based on the box art alone.

 

EDIT: might have missed these last time, but they're on sale at GuitarCenter right now.  Haven't seen either of these at this price in a while.

Epi Les Paul Jr. in alpine white @$99

http://www.guitarcen...Guitar-White.gc

Epi Les Paul Jr. in trans blue @$99

http://www.guitarcen...on-LP-Junior.gc

 

EDIT #2: Music & Arts has a 20% off coupon (good on anything 99 or over)  - CMTWNTY.

The real kicker... they had the Union Jack Sheraton on clearance and when I applied the coupon, it knocked it down to the mid $400's :hot: .  Too bad it's out of stock.  But maybe you'll get lucky and find something else to use it on.

EDIT #2.5: just tried out the Line 6 variax guitar and the code works.  So, pretty good coupon to try.

I snagged a Scarlett 2i2 today at GC on a PM to MF. ;)

Also, we get a 3 pack of Skillet tomorrow. While a lot of the web tabs are in drop C, the official tabs seem to be Drop D. I'll probably pick up the pack if it's all Drop D.

So, I just picked up a copy of PS3 Rocksmith with cord at Target on clearance for $8.98 thinking it might be a good bridge to get back into playing guitar. I was beginning to learn bass guitar many a year ago and never really went anywhere else with it. Now my 4-String Ibanez guitar just sits in the basement collecting dust.  

 

The version I got has box art that looks like this:

http://edgecast.lvlu..._1351280663.jpg

 

Can anyone who is experienced with it tell me if this version supports bass guitar or not? Or is it too old? It doesn't explicitly say if it supports it or not on the box.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this.

That looks like the original release, so no bass (the bass version looks almost identical but has a little bubble saying "guitar & bass"). 

 

You'd have to buy the bass expansion. I DON"T recommend you buy the expansion.  Better off putting that money towards the RS2014 version since that would include bass tracks.

Ok. Thanks for the advice. 

 

Lets say I want to still give this version a shot (unless it's garbage compared to the 2014 version...) are those guitars for $99 at Guitar Center worth it as a starter? The ones you provided links on in an earlier post...  I'm not opposed to starting over and learning a 6-string guitar. The "junior" listed in the name has be a bit concerned as I am 6'2" 300lbs... I don't want to get a tiny guitar and feel awkward playing it. 

 

Thanks again.

Those juniors are fine. They're full scale - not minis.

The old RS has its charms, but 2014 is where it's at. Good thing is that if you continue to play, when you get 2014 you have an extra cable and can buy the transfer pack to move most of the RS 1 songs to 2014 for $10...

Thanks again.

Like Crazed said, these LP Jr's are full scale guitars and are fine for Rocksmith.  The junior refers to the fact that this has less features than a regular Les Paul.  Pretty much a marketing ploy to sell more guitars back in the 50's, but the Junior line developed it's own following and kick ass in their own way.

 

If this feels small to you, then you're gonna find that a whole mess of guitars are gonna feel small.  Best I can tell ya is... go out to guitar center or some other music store and start holding different models until you find one you're comfortable with.

 

In my case, I have 2 of these:  A cherry sunburst that I got with Rocksmith (the og BestBuy deal that started this entire thread) and a trans blue that I got as a gift.  These are the two I tend to play the most and I think it's because they are solid guitars and I don't worry too much if they get knocked around so they're always at the ready.  Where as my other guitars are in cases and while it sounds silly, it can be a drag to pull one out and get it ready to play

That's a beauty, Frosty! Now if we could only see some of the other gems in your collection... ;)


I love those thread because of helpful NG people get into guitars and all the camaraderie we've built over the years. I hate that it always reminds me of the Best Buy sale and I know I'll never see anything like that again... :)

FYI, the cyber Monday coupon code for Music & Arts is still working(CMTWNTY), even though it's not listed on the site anymore.  When I tested it, it worked on everything except for Fender products (sorry Crazed).

 

And since Crazed mentioned it, here are some of the guitars I've admitted to owning :lol: .In the following order:

-blue sparkle Squier strat HH (turns out this was my last purchase prior the Melody Maker,4th of July 2k14)

-Couch straps (photo was still in my library, yellow one is on my new purchase)

-Epiphone Swingster (when it was minty fresh outta the box)

-Hofner 185 solidbody bass

-Hofner Galaxie 6 string

-Schecter Damian (amazon special model)

-Schecter PT

-Schecter Stargazer

-Epiphone Les Paul Jr in trans blue

Some day I'll bother to take good photos... some day.

3 pack of Tenacious D this week...

On 12/22, there will be a 6 pack of Stone Temple Pilots. Dan let us know yesterday. He didn't want it construed as a rush to make money off of Scott Weiland's passing. The DLC had been in the chute, so to speak, for months. It just happened that Scott passed away this week and the DLC was already scheduled for 12/22.

Hey Frosty - where did you get your Couch straps? Did you get a deal on them? I love them. I think I may need one (or two... or six).

Guitar Center is now holding a Black Friday 2, "electric boogaloo" sale ;) . 

 

They added another flavor to the Epi Les Paul Jr sale. Now  you can choose from Cherry, White and Trans Blue for the same $99.99 price.

 

Cherry

White

Hey Frosty - where did you get your Couch straps? Did you get a deal on them? I love them. I think I may need one (or two... or six).

I got them straight from their site.

https://www.couchguitarstraps.com/

 

Once a year they have a sale (IIRC, it was a 25%off coupon code).  Been sooo busy that I completely forgot about the sale this year or else I would have bought a couple more. 

Now I gotta wait 'til it rolls around again... personally like the Racer X and Western straps the most.

 

 

Side Note: 

Posting those pics the other day made me bust out a couple of those guitars.  They had been out of rotation, just because...

Missed them, ya know.

Anyone looking to upgrade should check out the Ibanez that guitar center has on sale.  Gonna expire soon.

 

http://www.guitarcen...387812741313.gc

 

Only the natural finish is on sale for $250 (normally $400).  About 5 hours left on the deal.

Are there any really cheap guitars anyone would recommend?  I've been thinking about buying a cheap guitar to try out and see if I like it, with Rocksmith 2014, though I wouldn't want to invest too much in case learning/playing guitar doesn't really click with me.

 

If I go with something like this one on Amazon, will that work for learning purposes, or would I be screwing myself over? http://www.amazon.co.../dp/B002RXXOX8/

That's really NOT a good option.  Gonna be as bad as the majority of those First Act guitars... and those are terrible.

 

It may be old advice but still good advice is the Dean Vendetta xmt

http://www.amazon.co...s=dean vendetta

 

Dean Evo is another choice, if you'd rather have a different body type

http://www.amazon.co...s=dean vendetta

 

The nice thing about these two is that they're not too pricey (usually 100) and they're really solid models.  If you stick with it you'll find that these will serve you for a good long while. You might find used ones for $50, considering how many people picked up that model back when RS first released.  Might be worth it to check pawn shops or the used sections of music stores.

Thanks man, I appreciate the advice.  The Dean Vendetta XMT looks good (not that I have any clue about anything concerning guitars at all).  I'm going to do some more research and strongly consider picking that one up.

Congrats :beer: .

 

Don't expect you'll need to do much tweaking to get the guitar playing, other than tuning it up.

 

But if you run into issues, just post and one of us should be able to help out.

Will do. :)

 

Man, I can't wait until it arrives Monday.  I just wish I would've checked Amazon more thoroughly first, because Amazon has the same exact combo Prime-eligible and over $20 cheaper.  There you go, future newbies looking for a deal.

I'm almost a week late, but I wanted to share with you guys. I had a very merry Christmas. My parents gave me a 1987 USA Fender Telecaster. It came from my dad's collection.
