Guitar Center Holiday deals: Big savings through to Dec 24th

Guitar Center Holiday deals: Big savings through to Dec 24th
Whether you want a sophisticated nylon-stringed classical guitar, or a face-melting riff machine, Guitar Center has got you covered for the holidays. With up to $500 off selected instruments and up to $300 off selected guitars, you’ll be annoying the neighbors even more this December. Make the most of these massive savings while you can, because these deals won’t hang about!

There are literally hundreds of brilliant deals available, but there are a few in particular that you don’t want to miss. If you’re after versatility and playability then the Ibanez Axion Label RGAR61AL (catchy, right) is one you’ll want to keep an eye on. Originally designed for metal players, the BKP Aftermath-loaded behemoth truly is an axe for all seasons. The 25.5” scale, 24 fret neck provides ample playing room, and the enhanced cutaways allow for easy access to the higher frets. 

The super thin, flat neck makes those filthy riffs and string bends feel like you’ve been doing them forever. You’ve even got the option of coil taps, which means you can easily swap between a full fat humbucker and those slightly more stratty tones. It’s got $300 off right now, dropping the price to just $899.99.

One of our favorite acoustics has made an appearance too, in the Alvarez Regent Grand Auditorium acoustic-electric guitar. A spruce top and mahogany back and sides is a traditional pairing when it comes to tonewoods, employed by many of the world’s greatest acoustic guitar manufacturers. Alvarez has gone for an engineered rosewood fretboard and bridge on the Regent, which produces a stable, powerful and resonant tone that is way beyond its price bracket. For just $199 in the Guitar Center sale you’ll really struggle to find something as good as the Alvarez Regent.
