Musician’s Friend might have been fashionably late to the Black Friday bonanza this year, only dropping their official Black Friday sale on Thursday, but they certainly made an entrance with a headline-grabbing up to 50% off guitar gear. That sale is still live now, but it's set to end today – Sunday November 26. With some seriously big hitters included in the sale, you can still get massive discounts on Fender, Gibson, Mesa/Boogie, and many more for a while longer.

Musician's Friend also has a coupon available for further savings. Spend between $49 and $98.99 and you can save 10% off your order with the code BLACKFRIDAY. Spend over $99 and that discount goes up to 15% using the same code. They really want you to save money!

We’ve had a look through the sale already and pulled out some eye-catching deals for you. Designed in conjunction with Omar Rodriguez Lopez, the Sterling by Music Man Mariposa has got a hefty $200 discount at Musician’s Friend. Its angular looks match the off-kilter sound of its designer, and it’s currently the cheapest we’ve seen for Black Friday.

There are some massive discounts on amps too, including $559.80 off the Mesa/Boogie Mark V 35-watt tube combo. An incredibly versatile amplifier, the five-band EQ adds extra flexibility over a typical guitar amp, allowing you to finely hone your tone. If a Mesa is a bit out of your price range, the Line 6 Catalyst 60 modeling amp, another seriously versatile bit of kit, has a tempting $60 price reduction.

One of our favorite reverb pedals, the Keeley Caverns plays two roles on your pedalboard, giving you dreamy reverbs alongside some luscious delay tones. It’s currently got a $29.85 discount which on paper doesn’t look like much, but you’re getting two brilliant sounds in one handy unit which is great value for money in our book.
