not legally but if you obtain the files you can convert them to CONs using the C3 CON tools and they'll work like customs

Is there a program or something I can use to just rip them from my own discs so I don't have to find a download? I can't do that from the C3 tools as far as i can tell.

Best bet is to check facebook marketplace near you. Most of the listings on ebay/online are super inflated. I got a decent deal on a full band set on mercari late last year but I had been keeping an eye out. Good luck!

Anyone have any idea how easy it would be to fix a wooden strat that had a fret pop off in a move that I can't find now?

Unless you can find a replacement fret to buy, a 3D printer may be your only solution. Don't bother trying to scavenge one off of plastic ones because their necks are more narrow.

Is there anyone who is working on a RB3 replacement for PC? Or is there a 360 emulator that is even remotely close to handling the task? I live in constant fear that my disk is going to die and Iíll be without all my customs forevermore. :/

Install your game to hard drive.
Beyond that you are probably better off buying a RGH 360 before we start talking about crazy workarounds like emulators and sourceports.

I've tried but sometimes real life gets in the way. It has been hard to find time to play any games at all due to dumb crap.

Also I'm trying to have a baby and that is more fun than RB4.

Installing game to hard drive still doesnít work if the disk dies. It needs to read it initially on boot...
If it does die, seems a mod chip is the way to go for now then, I guess.

Canít you just buy another disc? I know only the one version works but it seems like there are more discs out there than instruments.

Sure, but the disk is unlikely to die if it's only ever being used to validate GOD and then goes idle.
Or maybe that's just wishful thinking.
But if we say that discs die from "bit rot" (random unrecoverable read errors) then reading the preamble for GOD purposes should be the last thing to be affected.

Clone Hero is good for the guitar at least, I wish it had a Rock Band skin though because I have the bars ingrained far more than the GH gems. (I converted over somebody's charting of the Against Me! album Transgender Dysphoria Blues for CH for my own use.)

clone hero's adding drums and supposedly pro drum support is coming sooner rather than later, and that's been a good enough substitute for someone whose xbone ate the dust.

All the clone games seem super janky, full of bad meme charts, and like they''re geared for solo play. The biggest draw for me is still the local multiplayer.

I'm primarily a vocals player but I haven't touched rb3 or 4 in months because it's so much more convenient to just play guitar in clone hero. It also has 6 fret support which is the second most fun way to play rb/gh after vocals imvho

And you can avoid all the meme stuff since it's one click to convert c3 stuff to clone hero

Man, you weren't kidding. I've been trying it over the last couple of days and if it's not a gigantic struggle to get things calibrated properly and have the highway not stutter constantly, it seems near impossible to actually keep a combo going because, even with the custom Rock Band theme, the actual gems are a mess.

Iíve been not spending a lot of time playing in the Xbox crew, but I have a new drum stool coming in this weekend so I should be more active going forward. Most of my rb time lately has been messing with customs and playing guitar on 3 while I use a stationary bike.
