The Black Friday guitar deals are seriously heating up, with more and more six-strings joining the ever-growing list of discounted gear, but what has got our hearts racing is the epic deals on Gibson and Epiphone guitars that are flooding in. Gibson - and by extension Epiphone - has long been the go-to for players seeking a timeless guitar tone, that never goes out of style. 

The one thing that can put players off the idea of a brand new Gibson or Epi is the price, well luckily we’ve found some enticing deals, so you can get your new axe without hurting your wallet. Guitar Center is slashing $400 off the insanely popular Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V Flame Top as well as the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V plain top.

Don’t worry if you don’t have the budget to stretch to a full-blown Gibson, as Musician’s Friend offering $50 off a Sparkling Burgundy SG and if you have your heart set on a single cut, you can get $50 off an Epiphone Gold Top LP
