For those who want to know what the prices are for the products that don't have a price because they're not on sale yet.

Sort the items by price (low-high or high to low) and all items will be sorted based on their cost.
If you look at the prices of the items around your item that do have a price displayed, you get an idea what your items will sell for.
Good tip thanks

This experience was nerve racking. I had my eyes on a keyboard and had the page ready for refresh at 10:00 when it would become available. I managed to snag it but the checkout process was crashing. 6 minutes in, the item was removed from my cart and I frantically added it back in. Checkout finally worked and got the pick up notification 20 mins later

The slowness was expected. But I really wish they sorted everything by the times things are being released. It's hard to sift through items that are releasing later and things that are available.

Well, I was finally able to get their site to load but can't see any of the sale pages, even the ones in Ontario where the sale is live now. They won't let me see anything because I'm in the Mountain Time Zone and the sale doesn't start here until 10AM local time. I tried clicking on a store like Toronto (Bloor St.) and got this message:

Due to unprecedented volume of web customers we are blacking out stores by time zone.
The pages will be available for view starting at 10 am local time. We appreciate your understanding.

The item I was looking at yesterday was simply gone from the city page when I jumped on at 3 min to 10am ET. Not showing but sold out, just gone like it was never there. No entry at all.

I'm an acoustic guy, but I've been toying with the idea of dusting off the electric and getting a pedal or two to goof around. I like fuzz and sludge. Any recommendations for something to start with?

Ooh, I own an G5420T and it's a great guitar. Congrats!

I'll probably spend most of the day split between recording takes in my studio and monitoring this thread. I'll try to help out RFD members with advice and tips as much as I can.

For beginner electric guitars I really like the new Epiphone "Inspired by Gibson Collection" line that they came out with at the beginning of this year. Excellent quality at a reasonable price. I've never played a bad one and like them so much that I bought this one for myself. It gets quite a lot of playing time.

As for pedals, there are just so many to choose from that it's hard to give a recommendation.

Edit: L&M's site is getting hammered so bad that I'll just post a pic from Epiphone's site so you can see what I bought:

This sounds good until you run into something like this:
