It's that time of year, and you waited too long. That's okay - we're musicians, and we've been late to a gig or two, too. The good news is that, well, we're musicians, and we know exactly what we want for Christmas. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or someone else, let us help guide you in the right direction.
So, your giftee already has an electric guitar, or maybe you know they have one on the way. A word to the wise: don’t forget the amp and cable. There’s nothing worse than a new guitar you can’t plug in. To avoid a Blue Christmas, we recommend checking out our mini amps starting as low as $24.95, and if you can't decide on which cable to pick up, advice is FREE at 888-686-7872.
Do you hear what I hear? You will, with the right gear.
