Playing guitar is an expensive hobby. Even the most basic of electric guitar rigs will set you back a few hundred bucks, with intermediate and high-end gear costing anywhere from $500 to well into five figures. This top-tier guitar gear is out of reach for most of us, unless a killer sale comes around – and that's what we've found. At Musician's Friend, you can save up to 40% on electric guitars and up to 60% on accessories, as part of Electric Guitar Month.
Musician's Friend isn't a stranger to a huge sale, but this Electric Guitar Month promotion is proving to be one of their best to date. Whether you're shopping for a brand new electric guitar, guitar tuner, distortion pedal or guitar amp, there's a saving here for you to make – and at a time when we're all looking for ways to continue our hobbies without spending too much money, that's highly appreciated.
With such huge savings to be had on gear from the biggest brands in the business, it's nigh-on impossible to cover it all. That being said, we've got to share some of our favorites with you. These include a sweet saving of $500 off this Gibson Les Paul Traditional in Blueberry Burst – which is down from $3,099 to $2,599 and will give you those iconic tones for a little less, as well as a massive $400 off this gorgeous limited edition Hagstrom 67 Viking II in Vintage Sunburst – which is now only $999. If you're into the semi-hollow guitar vibe, but want to spend even less, then there's $200 to be saved on the Gretsch Electromatic G5627T-P90 – a super cool, P90-equipped rock 'n' roll machine.
