Black Friday weekend is here, and among the thousands of Black Friday music deals around there are some great deals to be had for anyone looking for a new guitar. 

Andertons (opens in new tab) are the UK's biggest music retailer and this year they're offering huge savings on effects pedals, electric guitars, amps, acoustics and more. And there's some great deals. Here are the pick of them, according to Louder's guitar-playing experts.

One of the best deals is this newly released limited edition 40th Anniversary Squier Jazzmaster in Seafoam Green for £349 (opens in new tab) - a lot of guitar with £100 off the asking price (rare on Squiers) and a proper offset experience with the floating bridge and Fender-designed pickups that we found give a superb reflection of Jazzmaster poke and jangle.

This limited edition H/S Japanese Mustang with reverse headstock is £250 off (opens in new tab). Fenders that combine a humbucker in the bridge with a single-coil in the neck are unusual but make for a hugely versatile guitar. And it's basswood which makes for a lighter weight in our experience. Check it out over at Andertons (opens in new tab)

You can save £169 off the price of this Sire Larry Carlton H7 (opens in new tab) hollowbody signature in black. According to our sister site MusicRadar (opens in new tab), it's an amazing saving on "simply one of the best value signature models you can get".

This is the Fender MIJ Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde (opens in new tab). MIJ means "made in Japan" and this is a Tele with a twist, merging the offset body shape of the Jazzmaster with the electronics and hardware from a Telecaster. Limited Edition with superb craftsmanship, it's a saving of £250 (opens in new tab)

One of our personal favourites is this Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Edition Telecaster (opens in new tab). It was featured on the cover of our sister magazine Guitarist a few months ago and we've coveted it ever since. Andertons are doing it for £100 off (opens in new tab) – just £349 – this Black Friday. When's pay day again?
