Well, this epic sale from Guitar Center isn't for the faint of heart, it's for those who like their guitars detuned, their riffs heavy and their amps loud! From now until the 2nd of August, you can score significant savings across a wide range of metal-ready instruments, including electric guitarsbasses, drum setstube amps and effects pedals, in the aptly named Metal Mayhem Sale

With brands such as Jackson, Strandberg, Schecter and Ibanez all seeing sizable discounts, there is something here for every type of player - regardless of the metal sub-genre you subscribe to.

Our favourite offering from the sale has to be the Fishman Fluence loaded Strandberg Boden Prog NX 7. We believe that if you are in the market for a seven-string guitar, you'll be hard-pressed to find a better axe than this - especially since there is an impressive $499 slashed off the price.
