Ubisoft has announced bundles for Rocksmith, created via a partnership with Gibson, which will bundle Epiphone Les Paul Junior guitars with the game.

The bundle includes the game, guitar, and a Real Tone Cable for $199.99. The standard edition of the game is $79.99 and includes the aforementioned cable.

“Partnering with Gibson Guitar on the Rocksmith bundle is a great fit for both companies,” said Ubisoft senior marketing VP Tony Key in the PR. “Gibson is known for making world-class guitars and we’re proud that they stand behind the quality and experience that is Rocksmith.”

If you pre-order the game, you’ll also bet a $25 Guitar Center voucher toward the purchase of a guitar of your choice.

Rocksmith is out in the fall, check out 29 tracks for the game through here.
