Rocksmith: Guitar & Bass Guitar Bundle

Rocksmith Guitar and Bass is the first and only game that you can plug into any real guitar or bass. Featuring gameplay that automatically adjusts to your personal ability, Rocksmith engages experienced musicians as well as those who have never picked up a guitar in their life.

The Rocksmith guitar kit is the complete, affordable option for new guitar players who want the high quality that Epiphone guitars are known for. The guitar kit includes the Rocksmith video game, the popular Epiphone Les Paul Jr. Guitar, Rocksmith Real Tone Cable, Rocksmith guitar strap and 2 guitar picks. Everything you need to get started. You'll develop real skills and real styles while playing absolutely real music. Nothing compares to playing a real guitar instrument. Except playing Rocksmith.

Tracks, playable on guitar or bass, include:
  • When We Say "Any" Guitar, We Mean Any Guitar:Whether it's the six-string guitar or bass guitar sitting in your attic, your cherished faithful steed or the guitar you have yet to buy, Rocksmith lets you plug any guitar into your device. As long as your guitar has a 1/4" output jack, you can play. No output jack on your guitar? Then head on down to your local music shop, get an inexpensive pickup and problem solved.
  • Comprehensive Bass Support: Bass arrangements have been added to all of Rocksmith's tracks. Not only can you play the bass part of the song, but bassists of any experience can also improve their skills, like two-finger plucking, slapping and popping with dedicated Bass Technique challenges, tutorial videos and mini-games. You can even use your six-string guitar to emulate a four-string bass. Tracking your progress has never been easier, with your bass progression tracked separately from guitar.
  • Difficulty Settings Adapt To Your Ability: You love a challenge, but hate being overwhelmed. Rocksmith understands this and knows exactly how far to push to keep you entertained and addicted - no matter if you're learning guitar or the bass. With dozens of difficulty levels, you'll automatically progress from single notes to complex chords and techniques without ever getting in over your head.
  • Lots Of Music, Lots Of Styles: One of the most satisfying moments for any guitar player is hearing themselves play their favorite song for the first time. Rocksmith has amassed an amazing library of songs from different music genres allowing players to experience that moment first hand.
  • Get Plugged In: Rocksmith includes a unique 1/4"-to-USB cable - the first of its kind - and allows users to plug any real guitar or bass with a 1/4" output jack directly into their Xbox 360, PS3 or PC. Developed exclusively for Rocksmith, this guitar converts the guitar's signal from analog to digital and allows it to be recognized by your console.
  • Play Songs Instead Of Just Learning Them: You want to play new songs, but you don't want to labor through tablature or cringe through poorly produced videos. No problem. Rocksmith not only presents you with new songs but will also challenge you to step away from the notes on-screen and play songs by memory. Imagine that... A video game that gets you stage-ready.

That's if you buy the guitar with it. Just the game and cable retail for about 40 to 80 depending on console or extras.
