Well, Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over for another year. There has been some truly epic discounting this year - so much so, that we've been taking a look at our favorite deals of the event, some of which are still live.

This year was the biggest to date, with some ridiculous discounts being offered up. Whether it was a new acoustic guitar, electric guitar or guitar amp you needed, there was a deal for you. 

If you missed out on that killer new addition to your guitar collection, that amp you always wanted or a new bit of studio software, there's no need to worry - there are plenty of deals still available to take advantage of. In fact, a few retailers, such as Guitar Center, Musician's Friend and Sweetwater, have even extended their sales into a full 'Cyber Week'.

We've rounded up what we think are the very best deals that are still available today. If you still haven't found what you're looking for, there are even more live deals to check out on our Cyber Monday guitar deals page.

It's worth keeping in mind that some of our very favorite Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals sold out completely, so if you see something on this list that takes your fancy, we'd recommend you jump on it immediately. These deals aren't going to be around forever!
