With Independence Day right around the corner, it's time to light up the BBQ, set up the fireworks and grab a bargain on a new piece of music gear! The early 4th of July celebrations kick off with a bang this year, as Musician's Friend is offering up to 30% off a wide range of gear from electric guitars and acoustic guitars, to microphones and digital pianos. The folks over at Guitar Center are also getting in on the action and have slashed prices in their early access 4th of July sale. So, no matter what you are looking for you’ll be sure to find a bargain this holiday weekend.  

We must say we're very impressed with what's on offer right now. There's a saving to be had on all the heavy hitters from the world of guitar, from Fender and Martin to Vox and Line 6. So if you're a 6-string connoisseur, you'll be sure to find something to get excited about. Although, it's not all guitar-related savings on offer, there are also deals to be had on everything from EV microphones and the best PA speakers, as well as digital pianos and DJ controllers

Below we've picked out a few of our favourites from both sales, but be warned as you only have until July 7th to bag yourself a bargain from Musician's friend, and the Guitar Center offers are available for a "limited time", so be quick!

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 music gear for a living as a Junior Deals Writer on MusicRadar, I worked in music retail for 7 years, giving advice on guitars, basses, drums, pianos, and PA systems. I also have a love for recording and live audio production; I'm a fully qualified sound engineer with experience working in various venues in Scotland, where I live.
