Best Black Friday Guitar Deals


Like most people, I’m already pretty sick of my inbox being full of Black Friday nonsense. But here we are, doing a Black Friday post. Why, you ask?

Simple: because this year, I actually plan on buying a guitar during Black Friday.

And, as per usual, there’s already an entire ream of Black Friday guitar deals live online (way before Black Friday is actually meant to happen). I’m writing this on Tuesday, 21 November. Black Friday doesn’t usually kick off until the 29th.

If you’re looking for a new guitar this Black Friday, here’s some of the best deals I’ve sniffed out so far.

One Last Thing…

If you’re in the USA, you’ll want to go with the Guitar Center deals, and if you’re in the UK and/or Europe, check out Thomann’s deals further down.
