Holy humbuckers, Batman! Gibson has announced a limited edition Black Friday guitar deal, which they're calling the Les Paul Dark Knight.

Debuting at Guitar Center, the Dark Knight features a stunning translucent Smoke-Black satin finish on a figured quilted maple top.

The mahogany body has modern-style weight relief and pickups are Gibson ’57 Classic and Classic Plus humbuckers. There's split-coil and phase options on both pickups for tonal versatility. 

The Dark Knight also features a Nashville-style tune-o-matic bridge and locking Grover tuners.

It's a stunning contemporary singlecut but calling it a Black Friday bargain is a bit of a stretch. It’s available now for $2,999 at Guitar Center.
