Couple more deals from the Musicians Friend sale:

 

-Les Paul hardshell case @ $40

http://www.musicians...-hardshell-case

-2 pack of instrument cables @ $16

http://www.musicians...nt-cable-2-pack

-acoustic guitar hardshell case @ $40

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

Damn... I'm not a Gibson person, but I may have to bite on one of those... The Pelham Blue nitro finish is beautiful. I actually like it even better than the gold mist... I wonder how I could sneak that into the guitar pile... Hmmm...

LOL.  If I wasn't planning a different purchase, I'd be getting one.

As it is, I'll just have to wait for BlackFriday2017... maybe they'll pop up as a $300-350 doorbuster somewhere ;)

So here's something interesting...

 

Those Gibson Firebird zero guitars are getting exclusive runs at different retailers.  They've gone from one single flavor to four.

 

-Guitar Center family of stores have Pelham Blue & Black

-Sam Ash stores have Gold Mist

-American Musical/Zzounds has a faded Pelham Blue

 

Remember, these are made in USA and priced at $500

Quick question for those who play RS often. It seems the game has a heck of a time recognizing anything I do on the E string specially at the 1st fret. Is this something on my guitar, is it the cable or my lady like fingers not pressing hard enough?

 

Not a deal breaker, but it does drive me insane whenever I play the slide guitarcade game

I would check the intonation first and foremost.

Also, you may be pressing too hard on the string, causing it to stretch... which would cause the note to sound wrong.  For this try holding the string down, next to the fret instead of in-between frets.

You also want to make sure the volume and tone on the guitar is turned all the way up.

 

Once that's all done, recalibrate the guitar to Rocksmith... you know that thing you did when you first started Rocksmith.

Here are the 2nd's I got from Couch.  Not bad, really.

The mustang strap is pretty bumpy/wavey, but the pattern helps hide it some.  The blue is practically mint; only found two waves on it.  Figure they should smooth out a bit more with regular use.  Easily worth the 12-14 that they cost.  Thanks again CrazedRacer.

 

BTW, some new Fender models coming soon.  Mmmm, tasty 8-)

0144012582_gtr_duosonicmn_capri_orange_f

 

Fender Duo-Sonics and Mustangs, for $500 (MiM).

Various colors but really like the capri orange, daphne blue and surf green. The duo sonics come in SS or HS pickup configs and the Mustangs will have SS or P90 configs.

 

 

I have one of the Squier Classic Vibe models, that I grabbed during a BestBuy deal years ago. 

I am a fan :mrgreen:

Doubt you missed it, but there's a Rocksmith DLC sale on the X1 (as seen in the XBL thread, thanks Bloomy).

Just not sure when it ends or if it's also on sale for the other systems.

So what is the mustang guitar good for?

For Rockband.

 

There's only one RB guitar that could work with Rocksmith and that's the RB Squier Pro guitar.  Still wouldn't recommend buying it for use with Rocksmith (even if you could find a decent price for one).

 

Rocksmith uses real guitars.  If you need help looking for a starter guitar, ask.  The original recommendations, from when this thread first started, are still solid choices.  But also check with friends and family... never know if they might have one you can initially borrow

Just learned these will exist by the end of the year.

Although, haven't found any info on them coming to the U.S.; all Europe so far.

 

And speaking of Gold guitars...

I'll just drop this here...

 

It's Bungie Day!

 

Officially announced Moments of Triumph 2

Two shaders and two emblems shown.

https://www.bungie.n...APPY-BUNGIE-DAY

They recommend logging into each toon after you pick up the record book.  This will help track the activity from all three toons

 

Website and app are both wonky right now, so here's a pic.

MOT_B-net.png?cv=3983621215&av=322087058

 

There's also another emblem available, if you purchase something from the Bungie store.

Guessing you could stack this offer with the free emblem you can get from buying the soundtrack(s).

Level 42 PoE-gets you up to 335, no Matchmaking

My trials DoP dropped with Rodeo... not bad really.  I'll try to get my other toons thru, to see what kind of roll they'll get.

Otherwise, I'm ready for next week's Iron Doctrine

 

 

Anyone willing to help me out on the Hard raid? I've done Normal KF dozens of times, but it's at the point where I can't get past my current lvl of 309 without getting Hard Mode gear.

Sounds like what you really need are challenge mode completions for those guaranteed light-level drops.

My clan's willing to help.  We got a couple other Cag's plus others that have become solid teammates.

 

And lately, we've had times where we need to get a 6th (sometimes a 5th too) since our schedules don't line up.

We try to shoot for a 10:30 est/7:30 pst start, for the most part.  The night can vary, depending on whose online.

 

If you want, add me and we'll go from there.

Ended up going with the Dean Vendetta XMT as aFrostyONE recommended.  I went with this bundle and found a coupon code for 8% off, not bad: http://www.guitarcen...273887987617.gc

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.

Posted by aFrostyONE on 29 December 2015 - 04:13 AM

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.

Twilight Garrison is finally in the loot table (proper) for everyone.  It lets a titan do mid-air dodge maneuvers, key word being mid-air.  I've been using it too and it IS fun.  But definitely need a lot of practice to really make it shine, like the MOTW in the last Bungie update.

 

Astrocyte Verse is a new one to me, but guessing it has some sort of  dodge too.  I'll need to watch for that one.
