I have been on Musician's Friend's list for a while, and when it gets the end of the year, they have some nice end of year sales.
I wanted to pick up a beginner's Nylon String guitar for a while, so I picked up a newbie
fullsize (4/4) guitar today.
The (4/4) (3/4) and (1/4) size is $49.99 including free shipping, the smaller (1/2) sized is $46
I went with a 4/4 full sized guitar. I thought even if this lasts 3 years and I stick with it it would have paid for itself.
The beginner's steel String bargain guitar of the day is $49.99 with free shipping
Here is my link for the secret sale from their eMail, you can find lots of brands and instruments, and I don't know if the other stuff there are super super great deals, but for the ones I pointed out, they're really good deals if you wanted something to try out as a beginner.
They don't collect tax outside of Indiana, and free shipping is included.
