Guitar Center's Guitar-A-Thon sale is an annual event that delivers some frankly epic deals on guitar gear - and well ahead of the Black Friday guitar deals dropping in late November. Us guitarists rarely need another excuse to buy a new piece of gear, but when there are savings this big floating around on everything from electric guitars and amps to accessories, pedals and more, well, it's a no-brainer. How big are these savings? Well, from now until 11 October, you can score up to 35% off big-name brands, such as Gibson, Fender, Yamaha, Boss, Line 6, and so much more. 

When we say great gear, we mean some of the very best, from the biggest names in the game. Some of our favorite deals include a mind-blowing $700 off the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V, $119 off the stunning Epiphone Hummingbird Performer and $250 off this well-specced Fender Player Stratocaster

Whether you're leveling up your rig ready for your next gig, there's a recording session on the horizon, or you've simply earned a treat, there's so much discounted gear up for grabs that you're sure to find something that fits the bill.

First and foremost, I'm a guitar enthusiast – a fanatic, some might say. I'm a firm believer that most of the world's problems can be solved with a Gibson SG and a catastrophically loud amp. As a Senior Deals Writer on Guitar World, I write about guitars for a living, but in a past life, I worked in music retail for 7 years, advising customers on the right guitars, basses, drums, pianos, and PA systems for their needs. I also have a passion for live sound; I'm a fully qualified sound engineer with experience working in various venues in Scotland, where I live with my wife and dog.
