The Musician's Friend Black Friday sale has officially landed, meaning right now, you can bag up to 50% off a range of big-name brands such as Fender, Music Man, Boss, Epiphone, Gretch and 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 (opens in new tab) 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 $150 off, it gets even better.  

You can even save $100 off the price of the fabulously retro Gretsch G2657T Streamliner (opens in new tab), which is now only $449.99! Decked out in a stunning Ocean Turquoise finish and packing Gretsch's Broad'Tron humbucking pickups and a licensed Bigsby vibrato, this streamlined semi-hollow 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 (opens in new tab), 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 $100 off right now! 

Obviously, there are lots more on offer, so we suggest that you take the time to take a look through the entire sale.

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 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.
