Holiday Gear and Instrument Deals?


Recommended Posts

I’ve been noticing sellers on both Reverb and eBay sending me offers for reduced pricing on almost everything. It’s always been a thing for some sellers in my experience historically, but seems noticeably increased in the last couple weeks. Market trend or Holiday Surge? Hmm.

Any deals you noticed and thought were cool?

Monoprice has some dirt cheap strat & tele copies, like $71 shipped if you use their 15% off code. https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=610164

Supposedly they are not nearly as awful as one might think for that price. If you want a beater that you do not care about, one of these could work. Or if you know a kid that wants to start, donate to schools etc. Comes with a gig bag.

Sweetwater has some allegedly cool Behringer knockoff pedals for $14. https://www.sweetwater.com/c631--Guitar_Pedals__and__Effects?all&sb=popular&params=eyJmYWNldCI6eyJCcmFuZCI6WyJCZWhyaW5nZXIiXX19

On the other end of things, Sweetwater has Midas M32's for $3200. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/M32Live--midas-m32-live-digital-mixer

TrueFire has 75% off a slide-guitar course by one of your favourite players, and he is rocking a Hamer DuoTone.

I've got 2 Monoprice guitars, an older Strat copy and one of their Boardwalk 335 clones.  The strat was about $75 at the time, and with one of their 15% off codes, I think I paid $60 for it.  I was blown away.  The action was the lowest I've ever played, and had no fret buzz anywhere.  I had to raise it up because I couldn't bend on it.  The body was flawless, the fretwork was quite good and the nut us well cut.  It's a good enough guitar that I ended up putting a loaded pickguard from a Classic Vibe Strat.  The only reason that I don't still play it is because the neck is significantly thinner than I prefer, so when I traded into a Player Series Strat, I ended up preferring that one once I fixed the awful fretwork.

The Boardwalk I ended up finding on ebay direct from Monoprice.  I had it in my wishlist and was on the fence until they sent me an offer for $150 with free shipping.  Sold!  It got here, and like the Strat, it was very well set up right out of the box.  It has a big fat neck that I LOVE, so yet another guitar intended for a quick flip wound up being a keeper.  It plays great, and I don't even mind the cheap ceramic pickups.

 

I don't have any pics of it.  I'll have to get some.
