so, I have two electrics and an acustic, Rocksmith, a real tone cable and a gift certificate from Guitar Center for $25.00 for preordering the game. i don't need another guitar, though I think I'm getting guitar fever and would love another one. Anyway, is there anything I can use this certificate for other than a guitar? I could use a case, some backup strings, a new strap, I could go on and on.... Any idea if they will take the certificate toward anything else?

Going to try and use mine for some new strings and some picks. Maybe a strap. It dose not specify what you can/have to use it for on the receipt.

The voucher is only towards the purchase of a NEW guitar. Kind of sucks. I could have used some new strings and an extra cable.

Wonder what the logic was to offer this with the guitar bundle.

I just called Guitar Center, and was told that the 25 can go to any purchase that you make. So no it does not have to go towards a new guitar.

Lets us know when you use it. i just think when they scan the code / voucher its going to come up in their system differently then what the man told you.

Good luck, I took mine into the store and the cash register couldn't take it. The guy got the manager and he checked and told me it could only be used towards a guitar purchase.

That's good to know. I was really put off by the shipping charges on the website so I was planning to swing into a store when traveling next week and try there. Guess I'll give the site another try. see if the discout gets applied......

You were right man. Freaking sucks! Why would I want to buy a 100 dollar guitar when I have a two thousand dollar one at home. This makes no sense to me. If I wanted a cheap guitar I would have just got the one that came with the game.

I do know this, Guitar Center will not see a dime of my money ever. I will stick with American Musical Supply. This was the dumbest promotion ever. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif

Said pretty clearly on the ad that it was towards the purchase of a guitar, I'd just forgotten. I didn't get upset about it.

What ad? The only ones I have seen said nothing about what the voucher could be used for.

interesting....
when I enter the code on the website, I get this message:
1, HO, MISC, Rock Smith $25 off Gtr Pruch GCGS, 4/29/11-10/31/11
Coupon Code: 9MBWWH84YGK8R6UP
Spend $83.01 more to become eligible for an immediate discount of $25.00 on qualifying gear

this was after selecting an item of 15.99. I think you can use it if you spent 100.00.

I did not use this code by the way so it's still up for grabs if somebody needs it.

The one for Gamestop that every one made fun of because it mispelled Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Never seen that ad. I pre ordered from the store, and they did not even have any posters up for this game. The one that I did see on there site said nothing.

But it's all good now. At Guitar Center I would have still shelled out around 25 bucks that's with the 25 off. At American Musical Supply all most the same items was about 21 bucks. Minus one set of stings.
