Monoprice has a 20% off coupon: 2CRAZY
Good only today 8/25/2016

They also have their Black, Gold or Vintage Sunburst Route 66 Guitar marked down from $140 to $100
This Les Paul copy is pretty well reviewed on multiple sites that describe it as equal to many guitars running $500 or more.

So with the coupon, the Route 66 goes for $80 with free shipping.


At this price, can you afford not to buy another guitar!

It's also worth pointing out that their California Classic (Strat copy) is $80 less 20% with the coupon = $64

Wish they'd go to a set neck and a mahogany body with a maple cap.

I purchased a gold Route 66 (Les Paul copy) and a white California Classic (Strat copy) a few years back. Personally, I much prefer the California Classic for the lower weight and much higher/louder output of the pickups. I was very surprised at the very low/soft output from the Route 66. I could compensate to some extent with my amps or increasing gain through one or more pedals, but in the end I just stopped playing the Route 66. Perhaps Monoprice has fixed this situation.

On the other hand, these guitars are a steal at these prices, and if you are used to the weight of Les Pauls then it might be fine for you especially if you have a hot amp. The build quality is pretty good, and if you have reasonable expectations they should be fulfilled.
