What Guitar Center Black Friday deals can I expect?
Based on last year’s evidence, Guitar Center should be pumping out deals on just about every type of guitar-related gear you can think of.
A particular highlight from last year was $200 off Epiphone’s popular Les Paul Traditional PRO-III Plus Limited Edition electric guitar, bringing it down to just $499. And if you were in the market for a new Gibson, you could have scored up to $1,180 in savings on a selection of Gibson electric guitars, acoustics and basses.
Many Fender fans used Black Friday to load up on gear from their favorite brand with 10% off all guitars, effects and accessories. What’s more, Chapman guitars announced their new ML3 Pro Semi Hollow Obsidian Burst guitar, available at Guitar Center, just before Black Friday. Could we see other guitar manufacturers launching products in the lead up to the shopping event? If so, November is the perfect time to be an early adopter of a new bit of kit.
With so many top effects being being launched this year - like the Eventide Rode and Fender Full Moon Distortion and The Pelt - we’re crossing our fingers for some top Black Friday guitar pedals deals, too.
Not sure about buying a guitar online without giving it a play first? These days, most online retailers offer hassle-free returns, meaning you can snap up a great deal, test the guitar in the privacy of your home, then return it, risk-free, if it’s not the one. Guitar Center, for example, offers a '45-day satisfaction guarantee'. There are some limitations and exceptions to this, so we’d recommend checking the specific wording before hitting the checkout.
How can I prepare for Black Friday?
Do your research, use our expert buyer’s guides and bookmark useful hub pages like this one. That way, when the big deals drop, you can avoid the stress of trying to find them – we’ll do all the work for you!
