Eastwood Guitars clearance sale

https://shop.myrareg...-clearance-sale

-sale page is thru their sister site, My Rare Guitars

-50% off  select items and while they play around with pricing from time to time, there are some nice deals to be had.

-various models, including a few lefty guitars :bouncy:

Offset guitar fans can check out the Fireball for $450

https://shop.myrareg...-clearance-sale

-available in sunburst or black

-alder body, maple neck, 24.75" scale, rosewood fretboard

-so a jaguar, using "gibson" scale and equipped with P90s... nice 8-)

If you want a tele, there's the Sidejack 300 for $300

https://shop.myrareg...ts/sidejack-300

-kinda a Mosrite inspired telecaster

-available in sunburst or black

-basswood body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard

And if you were interested in that 12-string Epiphone i posted earlier in the thread, then check out the NSH-12 for $600

https://shop.myrareg...h-12-cherry-red

-available in fireburst gold or flametop wine red

-comes with hardshell case

-this is pretty much their version of the Epiphone Riviera 12-string; it's even part of their description :lol:

-Obviously, slightly tweaked to avoid lawsuits... so this one has a bit more of a fat-bottom bout when compared to the Riviera.

Whole mess of Ibanez guitars on sale @ Adorama, thanks to SD's Iconian

https://slickdeals.n...e=2#commentsBox

Linking to the SD post as you're gonna need their affiliate link in order to get the sale price.

-models and pricing range from as low as $269 to $1699

-mostly 6 string electric guitars, but there are a couple bass guitars, 7 string guitars and one acoustic 12 string guitar

 

NIce change of pace to the most of the guitar models that tend to go on sale.

And if you need a starting point to figure out what's good at a low/reasonable price, try looking at:

RGRT621 models @ $450; available in purple burst or blue burst

-has a 5 ply, neckthru construction

-DiMarzio humbuckers

-hardtail, fixed bridge

Purple bursthttps://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

Blue bursthttps://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

 

Or, there's the Steve Vai sig model @ $370, in pink

https://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

-honestly, not much that needs to be said about this one... it's either "love at 1st sight" or "kill it with fire"... you decide :lol:

 

More models/builds also on sale.  You just need to see if it's worth the extra cash.

EDIT: keep forgetting to post the following

Sweetwater has a deal on their store Gift Cards

Purchase a Sweetwater giftcard and receive an extra 10% value

Worthwhile if you were planning a purchase anyway.

https://www.sweetwat...hop/gift-cards/

-deal expires tomorrow, 06/19/2019

-basically means the giftcard TOTAL value will be 110% of what you paid/loaded onto it.

-for example, buy a $500 giftcard during the promo and the actual value will be $550

-deal is valid up to $2,000 in gc's, per address.

While this is more of an FYI than a deal/sale price, it's still worth mentioning...

 

Firefly Guitars for $140, fulfilled by Amazon

https://www.amazon.c...D=ATVPDKIKX0DER

- the current available models are semi-hollow guitars in blue, red, cherry and black (think es-335 type guitars)

- they're available in limited quantities.  Once sold out, you gotta wait for their next batch which can be a completely different model (like a thinline tele).

- they've developed a bit of a cult following, due to the fairly decent quality of the build when compared to the total cost. Plenty of videos you can watch for unboxing or reviews. And IIRC, there's also a facebook group that tracks availability

 

I missed out on a goldtop semi in their last batch, because I was busy trying to dig up info on the brand.  It sold out by the time I was gonna buy.  Same happened with a matte black version.

 

Anyway, I jumped on a transparent blue model once they popped up again on Amazon.

It arrived today and yup, it's a nice guitar for the price.

 

It does have little flaws, but nothing that I would say makes it unplayable.

-bridge posts are screwed in but not fully seated, so there's a tiny gap between the base and the guitar

-volume/tone knobs are rubbing against the top

-dirt/dust specs under the finish (most obvious when looking at the binding).

Aside from the finish issues, the other stuff is easily fixed.

 

Hardware is cheap but it works.

-tuners hold tune

-nut seems to be cut well

-pickups, switch and knobs all function

-frets are seated fine and no sharp ends

 

In the end, this is a good choice for anyone curious about trying semi-hollow guitars without having to drop a big chunk of change.  TBH, it's a decent first guitar in general.

And if they bring back the goldtop, I'm just the right amount of stupid to buy that too.

 

For me, this one becomes my beater semi guitar. Plus I get to experiment with different hardware configs, you know the stuff I'm too chicken to try on my 335 :lol: .

Sam Ash "Roseday" sale - sale is DEAD - active again as of 07/20

https://www.samash.com/s/term/roseday

Celebration of one of SA's co-founders.  ENDS TODAY !

-MUST view item in cart, for the discounted price

-looks to be 10% savings

-most items qualify.  If no discount appears, you can try calling to get them to add it manually.

 

Tried a few random picks and was able to get the discount on most items I tested. No luck on the Gristlemaster and new Vintera models, but it did work on the Acoustasonic and ES-235. Not really sure what the logic is behind that... 

 

Anyway, found a couple of models that are already discounted and will stack with this new discount.

Epiphone Casino for $450 ($500-10%discount)

https://www.samash.c...urce=igodigital

-only the Cherry red model

-about $200 total savings off the regular street price.  This is cheaper than the Casino coupe model.

-FYI, you could add the Epi case, get the discount on that and still pay less than the regular price of the Casino

Epiphone Dot for $270 ($300-10%discount)

https://www.samash.c...urce=igodigital

-only the Natural finish model

-about $180 savings off the regular street price.

 

There's probably more stuff, but that's what I found on a quick look-see.  Good Luck.

----------               ----------               ----------

And... have a feeling I missed the annual Couch Guitar Strap sale.

New batch of Firefly Guitars are up on Amazon

https://www.amazon.c...heapassgam08-20

All the semihollow models sold out.  This current batch are all LP Jr. type guitars, with a single P90 pickup.

 

LP Jr. singlecut in blue, for $120

https://www.amazon.c...nt-items&sr=1-1

LP Jr. singlecut in gold, for $120

https://www.amazon.c...nt-items&sr=1-2

LP Jr. singlecut in white, for $120

https://www.amazon.c...nt-items&sr=1-4

LP Jr. doublecut in silverburst, for $130

https://www.amazon.c...nt-items&sr=1-3

For whatever reason, their photos always look washed out.  I think the blue will look a little more like pelham blue.

And chances are that these will sell out within a week's time.  :lol:

UPDATE 07/20/19

They added two more:

LP Jr. doublecut in yellow, for $130

https://www.amazon.c...nt-items&sr=1-5

New Eastwood Guitars sale/promo

https://eastwoodguit...CJNVGJROUUifQ==

Received an email offer, but think it should work for anyone using the above link.

Sale ends this Saturday at midnight Eastern time

-20% off the select models in the link, using coupon code "PYW20NOW"

**OR**

-10% off & Zero%interest payment plan, for the same select models in the link (no coupon code for this, just use the link)

 

There's a little bit of everything: 6 sting, 12 string, bass guitars, resonator, lap steel and... the BreadWinner 8-)

But I do think it's limited to the finish/color listed in the description of each model.

 

The Jeff Senn Continental and Sidejack baritone both caught my eye, but I'll be sitting this out.

Good Luck and if you buy one...  :beer:

FYI:  the Firefly 335 clones are back up on Amazon

https://www.amazon.c...heapassgam08-20

-current choices are Blueburst, transparent Red, Sunburst and glossy Black

-$140 for each

 

And if you don't mind shopping away from the safety of Amazon's site, Firebrand has set up their own site to sell direct:

https://guitarsgarden.com/

-their personal site has some thinline telecaster clones available (matte black, green and sunburst)

-the price they show will jump up once they add shipping, so you should end up at a comparable price (per model) to what's shown on Amazon

-btw, peeps are saying the pickguard on the tele is a regular white guard covered with a sticker :lol: . Hey, can't expect the best of the best at these prices ;)

 

And Iconian, via SD, has posted another Adorama deal

Fender Am.Pro stratocaster for $1099, in Lake Placid Blue

https://www.adorama....rce=rflaid62905

-use code "SUMMERFUN" to get the discounted price
