Guitarists are always on the lookout for a bargain, and Presidents' Day is quickly becoming a great time for guitar players to shop. It seems every music retailer gets involved in the Presidents’ Day celebrations, but for us, one of the most impressive sales comes courtesy of Guitar Center. For the next few days, you can bag up to 35% off a wide range of big-name guitar gear.
This exceptional sale sees generous discounts on some of the most popular electric and acoustic guitars, as well as a slew of pedalboard essentials. A few of our highlights include $400 off the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V. The fierce flame top beauty is as versatile as it is gorgeous. With hi-tech push/pull pots this brilliant singlecut can do everything from classic rock humbucking tones and pristine single-coil sounds - as well as a spot-on impression of the mythical Peter Green out-of-phase tone.
Of course, we know that this LP still isn’t exactly cheap, but don’t worry there are plenty of options for players seeking a budget-friendly tone machine. The Squier Classic Vibe '60s Thinline Telecaster is a steal at only $399, delivering the sound, feel and looks of a guitar twice the price.
Guitar Center Presidents' Day Sale: up to 35% off
There's a lot on offer here, from stunning guitars, tube amps for gigging and a slew of pedals. That said, it's not just guitar gear that's seen a discount. Every member of your band can get in on the action, with pianos, drum kits and PA systems also on offer.
Now, if you fancy pairing your brand-new axe with a giggable tube amp, we’d highly recommend the much-loved Vox AC15, which has a generous $100 slashed off the price. Need more power? Well, in that case, you can’t go wrong with the versatile Blackstar HT Club 40, which also sees $100 knocked off the asking price.
Obviously, there's a lot more on offer, so it's worth browsing through the sale to see if anything takes your fancy. You have until 22 February to grab a bargain, so if you see something you like, don't hang about as you don't have long.

First and foremost, I'm a guitar enthusiast – a fanatic, some might say. I'm a firm believer that most of the world's problems can be solved with a Gibson SG and a catastrophically loud amp. Before writing about guitars for a living as a Senior Deals Writer on Guitar Player, I worked in music retail for 7 years, giving advice on guitars, basses, drums, pianos, and PA systems. I also have a passion for live sound; I'm a fully qualified sound engineer with experience working in various venues in Scotland.
