With Memorial Day nearly here, the deals are coming in thick and fast.

One of these retailers is Guitar Center, who is offering savings up to 35% off guitar gear from now until June 1 (opens in new tab). In some cases, this equates to savings of hundreds of dollars on some of the most desirable gear out there.
If this Memorial Day guitar sale doesn't include the brand new piece of gear you're after, then fear not! Guitar Center's Memorial Day coupon (opens in new tab) is here to save you 15% on any qualifying items. Just make sure to use the code memday15 at checkout, and enjoy the savings.
As is always the case, this Guitar Center Memorial Day sale offers discounts on a seriously wide range of gear. There's discounts on electric guitars from the likes of Fender, Squier and Epiphone, acoustic guitars from Martin and Yamaha, and guitar amps and effects from Vox and Friedman - and that's just the tip of the iceberg. We can't cover everything here, but these are our favorite picks from this Memorial Day guitar sale. First of all, there's $230 off this gorgeous Limited Edition HSS Fender Player Strat in Sienna Sunburst (opens in new tab), which, thanks to the HSS pickup configuration, is incredibly versatile. There's also a tasty $110 off this Squier Classic Vibe '60s Jazzmaster in Daphne Blue (opens in new tab), which is now less than $400, and a classy-looking Epiphone ES-335 in Inverness Green, which is now only $499 (opens in new tab) after having $100 knocked off the price. You'll need something to plug this all into, though - and with $200 off the classic Vox AC15C1X 1x12" combo (opens in new tab), it'll sound incredible.
