Cyber Monday guitar deals: FAQ

Cyber Monday is the name given to the Monday directly after Black Friday and sees online retailers continue their outstanding sales. So if you have a hankering for a new piece of music gear, Cyber Monday is the perfect time to grab it! 

Cyber Monday 2021 takes place on Monday 29 November, and if last year's sale is anything to go by, we are likely to see some eye-watering deals on a range of gear from guitars, basses, pedals, and amps. 

It's worth checking out our Black Friday guitar deals hub ahead of the big day, to get in on the action early. 

Cyber Monday guitar deals: what to expect

All major online musical instrument retailers get in on the Cyber Monday action, slashing prices on a myriad of guitars and accessories. 

We've included some highlights from 2020 below, but some of our favorite deals included a fantastic $350 off the D’Angelico Premier Series Atlantic, a whopping $250 off the Line 6 Helix, and $120 off the Ibanez NTS Nu Tube Screamer.

The  Amazon (opens in new tab) and Walmart (opens in new tab) Cyber Monday sales will be huge, too. Not only do they sell a fair range of music-making gear, these are also the places to pick up things like wireless headphones and Amazon Echo devices.

Cyber Monday guitar deals 2021: Will there be stock issues?

It's no secret that there are massive issues with stock at the moment - and not just with guitar gear. With shortages worldwide and increased demand, it seems getting your hands on that particular guitar is going to be more complicated than ever.

Our biggest tip to get ready for the best Cyber Monday guitar deals is to get your research done super early. Work out what you need, not just what you want, and get your wishlist together asap. Make a note of prices as early as possible so you know if a deal is really as good as it suggests when it drops into your inbox or appears on your social media feeds.

You should check the specific returns policy for your chosen retailer before you purchase, but most offer between 30-45 days to return an item, as long as it’s in original condition.

What else can I buy during Cyber Monday 2021?

It's not just about the Cyber Monday guitar deals in November. Aside from music-making gear discounts, you'll find bargains on great tech like robot vacuum cleaners, iPads, MacBook Pros and Amazon Echos – and you can even pick up groceries, pet food and dishwasher tablets – but it’s the guitar deals we’ll be looking out for.
