#13839545 ROCKSMITH 2014 Remastered Deals **** STEAM sale - Game & DLC songs

Posted by aFrostyONE on Yesterday, 07:56 PM

Been sitting on these for a while; waiting for them to drop lower...

 

Epiphone PRO-1 bundles, including Rocksmith 2014 & Realtone cable

-these PRO-1 electrics are single pickup guitars and from what I've seen only available in these bundles (new).

-hardly any reviews exist on these guitars

-comes with the PC version of Rocksmith 2014 & includes the cable.

-the rest of the stuff in the bundle (amp, strap, picks, bag) are forgettable, so focus on whether you value the guitar & game

 

-Explorer bundle, in ebony @ $99.84 $97.94

https://www.amazon.c...s=p_89:Epiphone

-Les Paul Jr bundle, in sunburst @ $113.29 $107.89

https://www.amazon.c...s=p_89:Epiphone

 

NOTE:  since this is an Amazon deal, you know the price will jump up as soon as the first purchase is made. I normally say price match in order to preserve the deal for other people.  But Sam Ash seems to be the only place that has it in stock (the LP Jr.)

Have a feeling they won't do a PM :lol:

Pay no attention to the dull lighting. the Gold sparkle is real and mesmerizing.

Here's the Yellow Doublecut

Not pictured, my first ever sunburst guitar, an LP Jr.

Only reason I'm not running from debt collectors is  because I had decided a while back to start saving for a Standard.  Of course, 2018 Gibsons had to include a Pelham Blue Classic and now I'm torn; Standards don't show at this price New (old stock) but that Pelham Blue :drool:

Couple of last-minute Labor Day deals, cuz I just got turned on to them.

 

Proaudiostar has a couple Schecter's on sale

-Schecter PT standard in aged cherry or blonde. Starting at $260

-Schecter Traditional in artic white or sunburst. Starting at $260

http://www.proaudios...120&order=price

 

Then there's Chicago Music Exchange and their sale... 15% off select gear

-2015 Gibson Firebird, $846 after discount

https://www.chicagom...intage-sunburst

-2015 Gibson Les Paul DELUXE goldtop, $935 after discount

https://www.chicagom...top-floor-model

 

NOTE: hmm, so how do I explain this... I focused on the 2015 models because even though several are labeled as "Floor Models", the talk is that they're actually new old stock.  CME bought up and agreed to clear out these 2015's for Gibson. Obviously, BUYER BEWARE, and absolutely call the store to see if the rep you talk to gives you the old wink & nod confirming the same.

 

Best way to go about it is to ask them to describe the condition of the actual item.  So far the in-store guys have been cool and have more or less let it be known that they're pristine.  Another possible giveaway has been the fact that as soon as a sale is done for a model there's another just like it up on the site available for sale :lol: .  Considering the recent SamAsh blowout, well this seems very plausible.  

 

Anyway, I've talked enough about the 2015's so you should have a decent idea of what you'd be getting.  Whatever you decide, just play your @$$ off

Gibson guitar sale @ Sam Ash... Moar 2015's :hot: !

http://www.samash.com/s/term/g!15!pd

If you missed out, you've got a 2nd chance! *Must Call to Order*

 

An SA rep told me they struck another deal with Gibson for more 2015 guitars.

----LP Jr's and LP Less+ are sold out (unless you get lucky at a local store)

----they are getting more LP DoubleCut specials and SG specials (heritage cherry and vintage sunburst only)(approximately 400 doublecuts available/approximately 200 SG's available)

----adding the Les Paul LPM (sunburst only) @ $600 (approximately 40 units available)

http://www.samash.co...rst-glpm15vss-p

----adding Les Paul Traditional (ocean blue only) @ $1400 (approximately 120 units available)

http://www.samash.co...lue-glptd15ob-p

----no LP Classics; not even one measly seafoam green. No LP Standards

If you followed the original sale, then you know it ended in a sorta cluster Fuck. So, to make things go smoother, they're going to have everyone call in to get the deals (website "buy" buttons won't be activated); this should prevent backorder limbo.

 

NOTES: remember these are 2015 models so same quirks apply. Robo-tuners, zero-fret nut, wide fretboard.

The LPM specifically has a maple neck.

The traditional is a frickin boat anchor (no weight relief) with a big neck.

 

Oh and verrrry important... the internetz demands you be angry :twoguns:  about Les Paul's signature on the headstock and the hologram sticker on the back.  Remember to shake your fist in the air while placing an order and all will be right with the world ;)

Something like this should suffice:

Gibson guitar sale at Sam Ash!

http://www.samash.com/s/term/g!15!pd

 

These are leftover 2015 models, starting at $480

Fair warning... these come with tronical/robot tuners.  

 

Seem to remember some other quirk about these models, but not quite sure. 

Probably best you perform some google-netics prior to buying.

So I took a break for about 6 months while moving. Pulled the axe out and my nickel plated pickups are corroded. Any recommendations on polish or anything to clean them up. Yes, I'm not very happy with myself for neglecting her like this

Im gonna say google and see what comes up on other forums.

 

I've used something in the past, but couldn't find the container and don't quite remember the brand.

It was basically wadded up cotton with the cleaner already applied to it.

 

Though, to be clear I've only used it on the frets and tuning pegs.  Use painters tape to protect the good stuff and wipe the frets with the cotton.  Then use a clean rag/towel to wipe off any excess and finally remove the tape.

 

If possible, remove the pickup covers when you try to clean them.

Noob here, i played RS for about a year on an epiphone les paul junior and loved it. That was several years ago, had to stop due to no time for a while...now i want back in and im eyeing the jackson monarkh pro. I love the thin body les paul style with more of a metal esque head stock, it just felt right when i had the scx version in my lap. Can anyone recommend this guitar or set me straight on a good thin body LP a like guitar? Thanks!

Looks sweet, but no experience with it.

 

I did look at those Kraemer Assault 220 guitars a few years back.  Have you checked those out?

These have FR's so I don't know if that's a turn-off.

 

Holy freaking shit!!!! A U2 5 pack is incoming on Tuesday. I think that may be an occasion for a HH Telecaster in my future. :)
 

My gear is ready... 8-)

Amazon has an exclusive run of Gibson les pauls.  USA made, in "fenderish"colors, for $500

561a0373-8362-4704-8ea5-d33f4b283d9c.jpg

https://www.amazon.c...M24093K2WW&th=1

They more or less are following the same build specs of the Firebird zero (poplar body, maple neck, light nitro finish), so good chance that $500 is the regular street price.

They're sub $300 now :hot:

Between 230-280, varies by flavor.  Teal and Black are currently sold out, but still orderable.

 

Act fast before the amazon algorithm gets ya ;)

 

EDIT:

BTW, American Musical/Zzounds decided to taste the rainbow!

They updated their Firebird Zero models to show 6 flavors: Pelham Blue, Frost Blue, Cardinal Red, Goldmist Pearl, Heather Poly and Ebony White (yeah, that's not confusing, lol).

http://www.zzounds.c...Z17?siid=191684

 

 

The Frost, Cardinal and Heather are currently exclusive to them. Goldmist is also at Sam Ash. Pelham & Black are also at GuitarCenter.

Stil 500 though =;

Absolutely, unequivocally NOT my deal.  Lifted it from slickdeals :-$

 

Fender Classic Player triple tele @ $380 :hot:

http://www.adorama.c...rce=rflaid62905

MiM Fender with nocaster pups

 

Sic deal, even if it is unconventional. (posted this same guitar a while back when it was 450).

Heads up.

 

These are currently $400.

All flavors, except for black (that's still $500)




#13556842 Rock Band Rivals Band Kit- $100, Guitar Bundle- $40 at Gamestop

Posted by aFrostyONE on 06 December 2016 - 08:07 PM

Haha, I don't want all this crap in my house but I can't stop visiting the damn thread.

 

This needs to sell out quick so I don't sell out




#13556778 ROCKSMITH 2014 Remastered Deals **** STEAM sale - Game & DLC songs

Posted by aFrostyONE on 06 December 2016 - 07:14 PM



It's basically the same model they had on sale for Black Friday. But the BF one is backordered. So I walked into GC and bought one. Great deal.

Yup, very similar but not quite the same.

The BF deal was for the humbucker model and that's the one made of basswood.  These P90 models were made of mahogany.

For years, they priced them differently, with the P90 models getting priced higher.  That's why I thought this had to be some sorta glitch deal

 

Anyway, they added cherry to the deal, so all 3 flavors are $79 each.

Guess they don't give a Fuck  right now, lol.

 

BTW, I was still in the Price Guarantee window and got back $20.  Keep that in mind if you made a previous purchase ;)

And here's what mine looked like...

C43BD851-0AD8-48CC-B56C-A0A5819336EF_zps

The wood grain is more visible on the cherry and yellow than it is on the black

Gotta think this is some sorta glitch deal...

 

Guitar Center has those Epiphone Les Paul special 1 (P90 models) @ $79

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

Only TV Yellow or Black

 

EDIT:  looks like they're goofing and taking $50 off the  current street price instead of the MSRP price.  So act fast.
