When will the Cyber Monday guitar deals land?

The Cyber Monday guitar deals 2022 will officially arrive on Monday November 28th, just a few days after the Black Friday guitar deals have come to a close.

As Cyber Monday is a worldwide event, deals are launched at all sorts of times. Quite often a killer deal will go live in the middle of the night, so shoppers will need to keep their eyes peeled when it comes to the bargains and products that they're after. Some Cyber Monday deals will only be live for a matter of hours, and some will linger for a few days, but we'd suggest jumping on a great deal when you see it. You won't want to miss out. 

What Cyber Monday guitar deals should I expect?

We'll be keeping an eye on the biggest music retailers throughout October and November for the best Cyber Monday guitar deals. Based on last years deals, the Sweetwater Cyber Monday and Guitar Center Cyber Monday sales were the ones to watch - responsible for some ridiculous deals on electric and acoustic guitars, amplifiers and more.

If you're someone who likes to record their guitar tracks at home, then Cyber Monday is always a good time to pick up a brand new laptop for music production. Last year we saw discounts on the newly-launched M2 MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs - mostly via Amazon - plus significant money off Dell laptops and older model MacBooks. We're pretty confident that 2022 will see another big sale on music-making laptops, so this could well be your year. 

Last year's Cyber Monday guitar deals saw big sales on Fender Player Stratocasters - something which we very much expect to happen again this time around. We also expect to see great deals on guitar amps and software, such as Positive Grid's Spark 40, BIAS FX and AMP 2 software.

Between us, we've done our fair share of Cyber Mondays - so you can rest assured knowing that we'll be hunting down the best deals for you, before anyone else.

Cyber Monday guitar deals: Discounts and coupons

The Cyber Monday guitar deals aren't all about individual product discounts. Some retailers prefer to offer discounts overall on a range of product categories. Usually this comes in the form of a code that you enter at checkout to redeem your discount. 

To give you an example, last year Sweetwater was offering up to 80% off a range of guitars, drums, recording gear, software, headphones and so much more from the big brands in their Cyber Week sale. Elsewhere, Guitar Center and Musician's Friend were both offering 15% off select products. 

This is a great way to shop and can end up saving you more when you have multiple items you're looking to purchase.

How to prepare for the Cyber Monday guitar sales

The easiest way to win when the Cyber Monday guitar deals start going off is to get your research done early. That way, you know exactly what you're looking for and can strike while the iron is hot. Make sure you note down the RRP - that way you'll know for sure that the deal you've seen is worth it. 

To help you create your wishlist, take some time to thumb through our expert up-to-date buying guides and reviews. They'll arm you with all the knowledge you'll ever need to help you find the perfect guitar gear for you.

Cyber Monday isn't just a music gear sale, though. You'll find bargains on loads of awesome tech like iPads, AirPods, Amazon Echos and more. You can even pick up video doorbells, fairy lights and toilet plungers with a bunch of cash off - but we'll just be looking at the guitar deals over here.

Cyber Monday guitar deals: Is it worth waiting for the deals?

So, is it really worth waiting until Cyber Monday to make the most of a Cyber Monday guitar deal? Well, we'd say yes - but that doesn't mean there won't be some unmissable deals popping up before the big day. 

In the past, we've seen some amazing early Cyber Monday guitar deals starting from as soon as midnight on Black Friday - so you can expect to see the biggest retailers dropping prices on some killer products over Cyber Weekend. 

Most places will keep their best deals for Cyber Monday itself though, so if you want to make the biggest savings, we'd hang on until the event itself.

Cyber Monday guitar deals: What happened last year?

Last year's Cyber Monday deals were pretty mental, but we're hoping to see even bigger and better offers this year. 

For guitarists, the best deals were $100 off the stunning Fender Player Strat in Surf Pearl at Guitar Center, while the shred-ready Schecter C-1 Platinum FR-Sustaniac was a mighty $170 off at Musician's Friend.

Positive Grid knocked cash off their iconic Spark practice amp and BIAS software, JHS knocked 15% off their 3 Series effects pedals and the Guild OM140-CE was only $529 at Pro Audio Star - down from $899.

Here are some more offers from last year to give you an idea of what to expect this time round.
