Hopefully they have some of the same deals as the American dealers. Lots of Gibson guitar promotions down south right now , I wish L&M would offer deferred payment like the states or COSMO's promotions.
Want a 335 or 330 but not wiling to pay the local used market prices if new and deferred payment is an option.

Not long ago, CME (Chicago Music Exchange) was blowing out new "floor model" 335s for around $1500 USD. I'd suggest checking them out if you don't find anything worthwhile among local retailers. That said used prices "are what they are" so, considering there's no taxes buying private, that may still be the most affordable option. IIRC, the last few here went for $2500-$2800 but my Fat Neck went for $3200 (which, thankfully, allowed me to purchase back my Shaw-era 335 from a member here ;^ ) Good luck regardless.

Have my eye on 3 Es 330 floor models right now at CME , only problem is can't play them first. Will most likely pull the trigger on one of them if the L&M sale isn't what I'm expecting.

Today I played on a Vox MV50 Rock mini amp at the Bloor St. Toronto store.
Blew my mind for what it is... Loud as hell and very very convincing

Hope they blow some of those out

Yep...I’m waiting to see what they’re offering as well. Not that I need anything, but if the price is right...

I am gassing for a 2018 ES 335 Traditional in faded Cherry Red , I am not partial to the bright Red and this colour was previously only available on more expensive reissues.
The new Traditional models are cheaper than previous years too, including the Es 330.
ES-335 Traditional 2018

Yummy!

I tried the clean one and thought it would be a good Xmas gift for dad. An amp that fits in his pedalboard.

I had no idea what Black Friday was until around 7 years ago. The I heard about people getting trampled to death in Walmart i Buford Alabama or whatever. The I heard about Canadian retailers doing Black Friday because of cross border shopping. I have never participated, and likely will not unless something is a real crazy stupid deal.

I went to buy a car in the US years ago and my weekend there happened to line up with Black Friday, I loved it. Stopped at Guitar Center for myself, Toys R Us for the kids and the deals were fantastic. Wish the dollar was still at par or better like we once experienced.

I have that exact 5th Ave and it's a nice guitar. Not quite used to it yet but certainly worth the price given it's Cdn.
Yes, they are very nice guitars. I used to have the Kingpin II model. I really liked the guitar but unfortunately, the neck was just a bit narrow for my large hands, I've looked at some Eastman's but they are not quite what I'm looking for.

Most of the stuff is stock they have a hard time getting rid of. They've been trying for AGES to sell those LP Studios with Floyds, and they can't.
When it comes to Black Friday, Tan Tuesday or White Wednesday, don't expect a lot of exciting offerings from L & M.

MF and GC have 25% off some pretty nice gear right now.

I bought 2 headphone cables from Kanata L & M the other day and the packaging looks like they were pulled out of a sewer drain.
