Musician's Friend Holiday Deals: Up to 40% off
The Musician's Friend holiday sale has landed and these deals are as good as any Black Friday offer we've ever seen. Right now, you can bag up to 40% off a range of big-name brands such as Fender, PRS, Epiphone and so much more. 

With so much on offer, we thought we'd try and make your life a little easier by picking out a few of our favorite deals. 

Sometimes, only a Tele will do - and the Fender Player Telecaster Plus is a brilliant option for those seeking the bright and articulate attack this humble guitar provides. The inclusion of a flame maple veneer and striking blue burst finish brings a modern flair to this classic guitar, and with $110 off, it gets even better.  

You can even save $170 off the price of the fabulously cool PRS SE Silver Sky. Decked out in the stunning Evergreen finish and packing a trio of single-coil 635JM "S" pickups this modern S-type is an absolute steal. 

If you are looking for a seriously versatile axe that looks as good as it sounds then the Sterling by Music Man Cutlass, in stunning Rose Gold, is a must! This guitar is effortless to play and its HHS setup means it will cover a lot of sonic ground - and better yet, there's a mega $70 off right now

And lastly, those seeking a doom-bringing 7-string should look no further than the Jackson Special Edition JS22-7 DKA-M Dinky in Gloss Black. Coming in at only $149.99, this metal machine offers superb value for money.  

Obviously, there are lots more on offer, so we suggest you take the time to look through the entire sale. Also, keep your eyes on our Musician's Friend Black Friday deals page for more great offers across this year's Cyber Weekend.

First and foremost, I'm a guitar enthusiast – a fanatic, some might say. I'm a firm believer that most of the world's problems can be solved with a Gibson SG and a catastrophically loud amp. As a Senior Deals Writer on Guitar World, I write about guitars for a living, but in a past life, I worked in music retail for 7 years, advising customers on the right guitars, basses, drums, pianos, and PA systems for their needs. I also have a passion for live sound; I'm a fully qualified sound engineer with experience working in various venues in Scotland, where I live with my wife and dog.
