While the main event is still a little over two weeks away, we’re already seeing some sweet Black Friday guitar deals to be had from a range of music retailers. Some of the savings available right now on everything from electric guitars to guitar amps are as good as those you’ll see over Cyber Weekend, and we’re making it our mission to trawl the internet for the very best deals.
And in our search, we’ve come across this mammoth of an offering over at Musician’s Friend. For a limited time only – until Sunday (November 14), to be exact – you can get an impressive 15% off a range of selected guitar gear priced at least at $199. All you need to do is apply the discount code ‘HOLIDAY’ at the checkout and your savings will apply to your basket.
We’ve curated a selection of what are – in our humble opinion – some of the best pieces of gear from the range, but make sure you head over to Musician’s Friend to have a proper browse.
