Guitar Center's Guitar-A-Thon is an epic annual sales event that's almost as good as Black Friday. This year's event is live right now, but you'll need to act fast as there's only one day left to shop.
With some massive savings to be had on products from Fender, Gibson, Martin, Yamaha, Music Man, Jackson, Markbass, Acoustic, Boss and MXR we recommend taking a look before the prices shoot back up.
Guitar Center Guitar-A-Thon: SAVE $$$
For the rest of today you can make huge savings on a range of top-brand gear from the likes of Fender, Gibson, Martin, Yamaha, Music Man, Jackson, Markbass, Acoustic, Boss, MXR and more. From electrics, acoustics and basses to amps, pedals and accessories there is something for everyone in this year's Guitar Center Guitar-A-Thon sale.
And how good are these deals? We've selected a few of our favorites right here.
For starters, how about $400 off a Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V Flame Top.
Or maybe you’ve been on the lookout for a nice ES-335 but don’t want to bankrupt yourself. Try this Epiphone ES-335 Traditional Pro. Designed "for any stage," you can grab 25% off one right now, meaning you'll pay just $449.
Why not check out this Fender Squier Blackguard-style Telecaster at just $149.99 (that's 70 bucks off)? Unbeatable for a first guitar or a modding platform. With nearly a third off the regular cost that’s an authentic solidbody design for the price of an effects pedal!
Talking of pedals, they have a Boss DS-1 Distortion with two handy 6” jumper cables going for only $69.99 – a very respectable 22% saving.
On the acoustic guitar front, we really like this deal on the Martin Special Dreadnought X1AE. Who doesn’t want to see Martin on the headstock of their acoustic? Furthermore, who doesn’t want to see $100 off the bill? $499.99 for a killer Martin guitar? Count us in.
Fancy something a bit smaller than a dreadnought? With $50 off, this Fender FA-135CE electro-acoustic is now under $200! Gone are the days when cheaper beginner guitars felt and sounded cheap. Built to exacting standards, these CNC-manufactured instruments play great right out of the box.
These are just a handful of the fantastic deals now available at Guitar Center's Guitar-A-Thon event.
