Although it’s not Memorial Day quite yet, Guitar Center has launched its sale early this year, giving you early access to the best deals on quality music gear. There are big savings to be had with up to 35% off electric guitars, bass guitars, studio gear, microphones, and loads more. The Memorial Day sale is only running until May 31st, so make sure you move quickly to grab yours.

We’ve had a look at the sale already and picked out some hot tips for you, starting with an amazing $500 off this Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V. Its weight relieved, making it easier to handle than a regular Les Paul but with dual Tradbucker pickups to ensure all that classic guitar tone is present and accounted for. If guitars aren’t your thing don’t worry, you can get a massive $1,100 off the Nord Stage 3, a top-quality digital piano used by many pro musicians.

Of course as it’s Guitar Center, there are loads of great deals on guitars but don’t worry if you’re not a six-stringer, you can still get in on the action. We spied a cool $200 off the Alesis Command X Mesh kit, that’s 22% off the regular price of a brilliant electronic drum set. To complete the rhythm section have a gander at this beautiful Breedlove Pursuit Exotic S acoustic-electric bass guitar which has a $150 discount. With a Myrtlewood top and stunning Sunset Burst finish, it sounds and looks phenomenal, perfect for open mic night. 

If you’re into studio gear, check out the Studio RTA Producer Station which has got a tasty $280 off, perfect for upgrading your studio setup with its rack spaces, dedicated studio monitor stands, and wide slide-out keyboard shelf. There are some great deals on microphones too, and the AKG C214 Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone caught our eye with a nice $66 discount. A cost-effective alternative to the industry standard C414 it works a treat on guitars, vocals, orchestral arrangements, and pretty much anything else you can think of.
