Single humbucker pickup?
I really don't understand why anyone would purchase this when you can go out and get any guitar you want, second hand or new, customise it, make it your own.. this looks hideous, I mean, it might be ok for a cheap guitar if it had at least two pickups.. but really.. who plays single pickup guitars??
If you want to gift someone rocksmith who doesn't have a guitar, or get into rocksmith, get the guitar first!! Preferably take the person and check all the guitars you can, for different necks, bodies, tones, general feel. Aesthetic is last priority..
Was amused and had to check this when it came up in my search for RS2014 preorder. Really enjoying rocksmith, but have no clue who this is marketed towards.. except for plastic guitar players who can't tell that this is not exactly a real Les Paul. I mean, if it at least had an empty space to buy/insert another pickup, without spending a bunch at a guitar tech's workshop... !!
