is it my guitar or me?



Hi everybody - I am sure his has been covered before but I am using a 1992 Ibanez ex160 on rocksmith.  


I have noticed that I am having a hard time hitting notes including the open E string in songs.  sometimes it registers and sometimes it doesnt.  I have tried various levels of pressure on the strings and I am starting to think that I need a different guitar.  


I even took it to the local guitar center for a tune up which improved it but I am still having issues.


so here is my questions...should I buy a different guitar? if so which guitars work the best?

Many factors at play here, could be your neck is bent, your bridge action is wrong. But you've had it set up in a shop, so that should be fine. Maybe you haven't calibrated your guitar with RS. Could be you are picking too hard or soft. Your guitars volume is down :D You are in a D or C tuning, I know from my guitar an rs I have to pick softer in a low tuning.

I'm sure there are more reason, and a more experienced guitarist has more usual info for you. But that's all I got.

PS: Nothing wrong with adding to your guitar collection ;) Get a Bass too :)
