Fire up the grill and light the fireworks, the 4th of July sales have started landing and this year they are looking especially good. Of course, Independence Day has long been a great time to pick up a fantastic deal on everything from household goods to tech, but there's plenty out there for the musos, too. The aptly named Musician's Friend has started the ball rolling early, offering up to 40% off a massive range of musical equipment - covering everything from electric guitars and amplifiers to acoustic guitars and accessories.
As you'd expect, this sale has hearty discounts on popular products from the biggest brands, with literally something here for everyone. For example, you can take home the world's most popular Mexican-made Fender Stratocaster for less, with a whopping $230 slashed off the price of this emerald HSS Player Strat. Perhaps you are looking for a guitar that strikes a balance between drop-dead gorgeous looks and sonic versatility? Well, in that case, look no further than the Gretsch G2627T Streamliner, which is down to only $549.99 - that's a saving of $150!
