I ended up just buying a Squier Bullet I saw on sale on Guitar Center, with the $50 in credit I had there, it ran me $80. It's not exactly an amazing guitar, but it's a shape I'm familiar with. The downside to that guitar is that it's only got 21 frets, which makes bits of Freebird's solo unplayable. Then again, the rest of the solo is unplayable for my untalented fingers, so it's kinda a moot point...when I can play the rest of that solo flawlessly and am only being screwed by not being able to hit those notes, I'll think about buying a better guitar.
I'm not saying the Squier is absolutely terrible for the game. I just felt like it would be better to get used to the guitar shape I liked. I am not sure if it is the guitar itself or my preference, but I seem to be doing much better on my other guitar.
On temporary hiatus from Rock Band. Too busy playing Rocksmith.
But, since I don't have room for ANY more RB equipment or musical interests, until my wife and I buy a house, I'm sorta stuck with the Squier. It's good for learning the ropes, at least.
It's spelled "Squier." Stop spelling it like someone who is in training to be a knight.
RB's selection of pro songs is getting to be rather nice.
Who do I have to get drunk in order to get "Red Solo Cup" in Rock Band?
