We’ve had a browse of the sale already to see what we could see, and picked out some deals we think you’ll love. If you want a Gibson but have balked at the price, then how about the Gibson Les Paul Traditional Pro V with a gigantic $700 off the regular price? It’s got a gorgeous flame maple top and is available in both Cherry Burst and Transparent Ebony Burst. An asymmetrical neck shape and Gibson Tradbucker pickups make this thing an absolute tone monster.

If you prefer acoustic guitars the Martin Special Dreadnought Cutaway 11E Road Series caught our eye. As well as being an amazing instrument in its own right, it’s got a healthy $172 off in the sale, taking its price well below the $1,000 mark. You’ll need to use the PRESDAY code to get your discount though. With a powerful low-end boom and brilliant highs, this is a super versatile instrument that’s now even better value for your hard-earned cash.

Finally, we had to talk about the Line 6 POD Go. It’s got a massive discount of $125, taking the price down to just $474.99, perfect for the player who wants to get into amp modeling without a complex unit. Designed to give you all the power and flexibility of the Helix range of amp and effects modelers without any extra fluff, it’s the perfect entry point into the addictive world of amp modeling.
