I checked but didn't see anyone post it. This deal is similar to the previous deal at Guitar Center (which was quite popular). The difference is mahogany body with maple top. Available colors are satin iced tea and wine red.
$500 off (24%) the original price of $2100.

Guitar isn't that difficult. If you spend 5-10 hours a week, you'll quickly be proficient. Most people won't spend that much time. YouTubers like JustinGuitar are the place to start. A used made in Mexico Fender Stratocaster or Telecaster (or the ones on sale at Adorama) are more than enough for a beginner to intermediate player. Those are less than 1/3 the price of this.
Pretty guitar but not enough discount
It's a really good discount, especially considering the Gibson price hikes that just happened this fall.

I think that is pretty good discount considering that used Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro guitars on Reverb are going for $1500 and up.

It is weight relieved with swiss chese holes, but the expensive prices were hiked across the board recently.

Stupid aside question. I don't play the guitar, took lessons years ago on piano and trumpet, both of which I'm awful at because I don't have natural musical talent and didn't follow through and just keep at it till it took. Anyway, my buying this beauty would make about as much sense as my buying an astronaut suit.

But were I to buy a much less expensive but still decent "starter" guitar, acoustic or electric, found a good teacher or online course, and applied myself, say 5-10 hours a week, with my lack of natural musical talent, how long before I could reasonably expect to play anything more complex than say Row Your Boat and not drive all the local mice, cats and dogs away with my awful playing (not to mention the neighbors pounding on the wall to get me to stop)?

I'm asking because I grew up in an era dominated by electric guitar rock, the 70's, you know exactly who and what I'm referring to, Zeppelin, Clapton, Floyd, Allman Brothers, etc., and later developed an appreciation for the blues and classical guitar, and I've long wanted to learn how to play one, however badly, to feel what it's like to actually play the music and not just listen to it, kind of like how taking up painting helps you appreciate art better.

Sorry to intrude. A quick and basic response is all I'm hoping for. There are obviously better places to seek out a more involved one.

Thanks, helpful. I found that learning to play the piano was really hard for me because one, my hands just aren't that dextrous and playing even relatively simple chords was hard, especially in rapid succession, and two, I just couldn't master that independent two-handed thing, especially in pieces where the left hand played chord progressions or served a rhythmic role and not just basic static chords, with one hand always wanting to follow the other.

I realize that playing a guitar is obviously also a two-handed thing, but I understand that it's not in the same way, at least at the more basic level, where the "fingering hand" determines the chords but stays static until it's time for a new chord. I'm sure that in more advanced guitar playing it's probably a lot more like playing a piano, especially when you start getting into blueing the notes, tremolos, slide, etc., but I can worry about that later.

I did take better to playing the trumpet, because there are only three valves played with one hand, the other hand just holding the instrument, and one's mouth was sort of the "second hand", forming notes depending on how you shaped it. I found it to be a lot less difficult to learn than the piano, and more satisfying (I was really into Jazz at the time), and the real challenge was forming full and rich-sounding notes, in rapid succession.

Not sure if this means I'd find learning to play the guitar easier or harder than piano or trumpet.

I play all three - piano most of my life until college, trumpet since middle school and into adulthood, and guitar heavily the past couple of years. As a musician, there is some level of natural talent that can take people to next level; but for being able to play well it takes patience, discipline and practice. Lots of practice. Most people give up when it doesn't come quickly. I was guilty of this on guitar twice while trying to learn it many years ago. You can easily get a $200 guitar to learn on that will be decent (Squire affinity series for example) that is also easy to sell at a later date should you not continue. Really, the best advice I have for guitar is to get plugged in ASAP to a band. This will accelerate your growth far faster than anything else and keep you going for much longer than if you sit alone in a bedroom watching Justin guitar.

True, nothing like being thrown into the fire to force you to master something. But, of these three, which was hardest for you to learn? Based on my piano and trumpet experience, I'm guessing that guitar will be somewhat easier for me than piano was, at least at the basic level. To get really good at anything is a whole other matter and there are no short cuts or this is easier than that. It's all hard. But I'm focusing on the basic phase for now.

Thanks. Are any on the so-called "forbidden" list? Obviously they're what any beginner wants to learn how to play right off. Smilie
