skyp1e;4978292 said:Threads like this one sort of depress me. Shiny new people raring to get started with RB pro mode. Instead of being able to feel excited there is instead a big let down because the Squiers are scarce and the DLC is winding down.
randomas;4978655 said:+1 on the anticlimax thing. As for your options if you want to play RB3 protar, I'd advise you to get the mustang controller cheap and use the money you saved on a nice regular guitar for rocksmith. I own a squier and love it and to separate me from it you'll have to pry it away from my cold dead hands! That said, as a regular electric guitar it sucks, badly. So if you want the RB3 pro experience get the mustang. If it's authentic guitar as it's meant to be get a normal e-guitar and stick to RS.By this I don't mean to bash RB, I love it and it is more fun to play with friends. But as a proper guitar playing game RS is better.
NOT_Travis;4978765 said:Pretty much this. I'm just glad I got my Squier soon after they were released. With RewardZone points at Best Buy, I walked out paying about $150..
intropee;4979397 said:I got mine for $199.99 at Best buy... 2years ago.. Mustang is the way to go for just RB3.
NOT_Travis;4979473 said:I really didn't like it at all. I actually have both and MUCH prefer the Squier. But that's looking at, what, $500-$650 total these days? So if that's why you're suggesting it, then, yeah. I have to reluctantly agree.
peterock2007;4979492 said:Yeah Money is the only reason to suggest a mustang. It's so inferior it's not funny.

NeilDiamond1974;4998259 said:I'm curious to learn more about this. Most of the audio to midi things I've seen only do one note at a time. If this actually does what it is supposed to do with low enough latency. I would get this in a heartbeat. The other option for a real non-midi guitar is about $3000.

agentnnc;4998304 said:I just bought the mustang from madcatz for a sweet $50. I've been playing real guitar for about a year and there is nothing wrong with it. It feels great. Can't go wrong, especially for the huge price difference. Do yourself a favour and buy the mustang and used the money you save on something else.
raynebc;4998383 said:Not likely to have good results, for which you'd need to have pitch detection on a per-string level (ie. hexaphonic MIDI pickup).
skyp1e;4998393 said:I have to say, as someone that is acquainted with guitar for a while, but was really never anything to brag about, that I enjoy the Mustang very much too. It took some getting used to, but it's kind of second nature now and I don't feel like I'm really compromising at all when playing it. Of course it's not the same as playing strings, but it's close enough that I forget I'm playing buttons after about 20 minutes into a practice.
agentnnc;4998594 said:Agreed. It took me a few hours to adjust to the feel and fret spacing but I'm used to it now. The biggest challenge for me is reading the note waves or whatever they call their representation of chords. It's not always easy to make an on the fly call about how many fret difference it is.
Dentata;4998600 said:If you are talking about the arpeggio waves though, that was just a HMX brainfart that is a real pain to read on the fly and chord numbering doesn't fix those.
