PRS SE Custom 22 Semi-Hollow Quilt Top: Was $879, now $649
PRS are known for their drop-dead gorgeous guitars, and this quilt top Custom 22 is no exception. Featuring the outstanding coil-splittable 85/15 pickups, PRS vibrato system, and comfortable maple neck, this guitar isn't just pretty to look at, it's also extremely versatile - and with $230 off, it gets even better!

Featuring a 5-ply maple/walnut Ultra-Thin neck with Ultra-Access neck carve, you'll have no trouble reaching the highest notes while you're melting faces. This metal monster is available in two colors Forest Burst and Aurora Burst and has a whopping $110 off right now. 

Martin X Series 000-X1AE: Was $599.99, now $499.99
There isn't another acoustic guitar brand as prestigious as Martin. The X series gives you the ability to join the ranks of the world's greatest players at a much more affordable price. The 000 body size is smaller than the traditional dreadnought and is perfect for players who want a less bulky instrument - and with $100 off, now might be the best time to grab one. 

Fender California Newporter: Was $429.99, now $359.99
Sometimes a boring old acoustic just won't cut it - and the Fender California Newporter is anything but boring. Featuring a slimmer body and comfortable "electric-style" neck, this guitar is a breeze to play and would most definitely suit an electric guitar player looking to get into playing acoustic.

EVH Wolfgang WG Standard: Was $649.99, now $499.99
We had to Jump at the chance of including this powerhouse of a guitar. The EVH Wolfgang Standard delivers the mammoth tones Van Halen was known for - and better yet, you don't have to be a world-famous musician to afford it. The EVH Wolfgang pickups offer a warm, punchy tone, while the EVH-branded Floyd Rose will allow you to dive-bomb the night away without fear of going out of tune.  

Epiphone Les Paul Std '60s Quilt Top: Was $599, now $499
Who doesn't love a Les Paul? These guitars are as much a part of music history as the players who wielded them, delivering a thick, punchy mid-range not found on other guitars. For those not wanting to part with thousands of dollars for a Gibson Les Paul, an Epiphone Les Paul is a perfect solution, and with $100 off right now, you might want to grab one while you can.

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 Junior 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.
