15th Anniversary: Bass Week

Published on 26 August 2019

We're celebrating our 15th Anniversary with Bass Week at guitarguitar!

The shredding lead guitarist may often command the spotlight, but here at guitarguitar we know that they'd be nothing without a killer rhythm section. Whether you're a subtle player who keeps the groove going or a slapping, popping funk monster who brings Flea level heat to every performance, this week we're putting bass players at the front of stage. A deadly bassline is the glue that holds a tune together and we've got absolutely loads of love for you low-end lurkers, so we knew it was only right that we have a Bass Week as part of our 15th Anniversary celebrations! What have you got to look forward to? Read on to find out!

Bass Sale

We're going all out for Bass Week and with some mega deals on some of our favourite brands, this is the perfect time to treat yourself to a new axe! We're offering some whopping discounts on a whole range of Fender American Elite bass guitars, along with a huge range of Sandberg's fantastic basses. There are some serious savings available here so click here check out the range now if you've been thinking about a new groove machine!

Free Ernie Ball restring

Restringing your bass can be a bit of a task and given the price of bass strings, we often find that our 4 string compadres don't restring as much as they'd like to. That's why all of this week we're giving you the chance to have your bass restrung for free at any of our stores (Glasgow - SOLD OUT)! We'll be using Ernie Ball's premier strings including flatwound, shortscale, 4 string and 5 string options along with their amazing Slinky Cobalt Flatwounds which are worth around £50 a set! Simply call or email your closest guitarguitar to reserve your space now.

Win a new bass or pedal

We've plenty of awesome prizes for you to get your mitts on too so make sure you don't miss out on this week's competition! First up for grabs comes courtesy of Orange and take it from us, it's REALLY cool! We're giving you the chance to win an Orange O Bass which is just bursting with so much punk rock energy that we can barely stop ourselves from picking it up and bashing out some high-speed riffage.

We're not stopping there though, also up for grabs is an utterly stupendous sounding Fender Downtown Express Bass Multi-FX pedal. We fell in love with this pedal as soon as we plugged it in and we reckon most of you bass heads will feel the exact same way. Giving you access to a compressor, 3-band EQ and overdrive in the one pedal, this is the perfect tool for bass players and is a one stop unit for all of your go to effects. We've also got you covered for playing live and recording with an awesome Gallien Krueger Plex Bass Preamp Pedal. This little guy allows you to totally fine-tune your tone no matter where you're playing and is a seriously practical and portable piece of kit. All of the prizes this week are absolutely excellent so don't miss out on the chance to get involved by entering online or visiting your local store this week!

As with all of our 15th Anniversary giveaways, all you have to do to be in with the chance to win is stop by your local store this week (26/08/19 - 01/09/19) and fill out an entry ticket. These will also be entered into a grand prize draw where one lucky winner will take home a guitarguitar gift card worth £1500 at the end of the 15 weeks! You can also now enter online!
