Well like us you’ll be pleasantly surprised that Musician’s Friend has jumped the gun and dropped their sale over a week early, offering impressive savings of up to 40% off guitar gear. We’ve had a look at the full sale already and there’s an excellent selection of deals on offer, from electric and acoustic guitars to effects pedals and guitar amps, so well worth a browse if you’re hunting for a bargain. We've highlighted some of our favorites below.

As always we had to have a look through the sale to see if we could spot some really good deals. First up we spied the Jackson Concept Series Soloist SLAT7 with a tasty $300 discount, taking the price down to $1,499. This 7-string guitar features powerful Bare Knuckle pickups, a compound 12-16-inch radius fretboard, and an all-black-everything aesthetic that looks incredible.

If you want something a little different, you should have a look at the Alvarez ABT610E baritone acoustic guitar. It’s got a nice $110 discount at the moment, giving you low-tuned acoustic guitar tones that will add a fresh flavor to your tonal palette. It’s pitched between a dreadnought and an acoustic bass, making it great for fattening up ensemble pieces or just acting as a unique solo instrument.

If you’re a regular reader of Guitar World then you’ll know just how much we love the Line 6 Helix range, so of course we had to pick out the Stomp XL, which has a massive $150 discount. Perfect for creating a hybrid setup alongside a pedalboard and a tube amp, or just being the center point of your rig in its entirety, this powerful piece of kit delivers a huge array of top-quality amp and effects tones.
