Guitar Center Black Friday Deals 2022: FAQ

Black Friday takes place on the day after Thanksgiving and will be held on Friday 25th November this year. The deals will extend across the following weekend (known as Cyber Weekend) before finishing with some great Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals on November 28th. 

If previous years are anything to go by, we can expect to see some killer Black Friday deals emerging well before the big day. It's worth bookmarking this page and checking back in regularly to see what's on offer.  

Guitar Center Black Friday deals 2022: What to expect

In the past, Guitar Center has offered big money off Fender Player Strats in Surf Pearl and Shell Pink, bringing their prices down to $599. The Squier Bullet Telecaster had $50 knocked off, and Vox's gorgeous AC10 came in at $499, after $100 was snatched from that price tag.

For you acoustic guitarists, last year saw some great deals too. Among others, the fantastic Gretsch G5027CE saw $100 slashed from it's retail price - offering great quality at an even more affordable price.

Metalheads were in Guitar Center's thoughts as well, with the price of the EMG-armed Schecter C-1 Platinum dropping from $599 to $449. 

We're expecting this year's Guitar Center Black Friday deals to be equally as excellent, with savings on everything from the best metal guitars, electric guitar strings, pedalboards and more Fender Stratocasters and Telecasters.

Guitar Center Black Friday deals: Should I wait until Black Friday?

Should you wait until Black Friday to make the most of the Guitar Center Black Friday deals?

Well, we'd say yes. If you're looking for the best deals and the biggest savings, then we'd wait until Friday November 25 - but there will undoubtedly be some huge savings to be made in the lead up to the big day.

In the past, we've seen early Black Friday deals starting as soon as the start of October - and Guitar Center has already kicked off their sales with the Guitar-A-Thon event. You can expect to see big deals from now all the way until the big day.

Most places will keep their best deals for Black Friday and Cyber Weekend, however - leading all the way through to the Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals the following Monday. If you want to make the biggest savings, we'd wait until the event itself.

Guitar Center Black Friday deals: Will there be enough stock?

While we don't think there is going to be an insane amount of stock disruption this Black Friday, we can expect to see delays on products getting from factories to distribution centers thanks to the current supply chain issues facing the US.

There also could be delays on getting your products delivered to you after you've ordered them, so we'd suggest you jump on any great deals you want as soon as you see them to avoid disappointment.

If you're in the market for any of the best guitar plugins though, fill your boots. There aren't any delivery times on those bad boys!
