Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals: Editor's picks
Fender Paramount PO-220E Orchestra:
The US Fender site might not be running Paramount deals but Guitar Center has stepped in with a whopping $166 off the Orchestra Paramount in a lovely Cognac Burst. This is a lot of acoustic guitar for the money: solid mahogany top, back and sides with a comfortable slim taper neck that's enhanced by a satin back finish. The Fender/Fishman Sonitone Plus system is the best we've found on an acoustic at this price point with its piezo and body transducer blend options. Great spec, it looks premium and it comes with a hardshell case – you'll even get an extra 10% off if you create a Guitar Center account. What's not to love here?
Get a Taylor, Gift a Taylor: Travel guitars from $99
Buy any Taylor 200 series or higher model from Guitar Center and add an acoustic Baby Taylor BT1 for $99 or an acoustic GS Mini Sapele for $199. The saving on the RRP is a generous $300 and the promotion runs until 15 January 2024. So, buy your dream Taylor and get a second guitar to take on vacation or give away to a loved one this holiday season.
Fender Player Strat HSS:
$829.99, now $649.99
Guitar Center is discounting select Fender Player Strats by up to $210, which makes these awesome guitars an incredibly good deal. Authentic Strat appointments, shared by all models, include a hand-shaped alder body, a five-way selector switch, alnico pickups, and a fast, comfortable maple neck. There’s the choice of a classic all-out single coil SSS configuration or you can opt for versions loaded with a humbucker in the bridge.
MESA/Boogie Mini Rectifier 25:
$1,699, now $1,359
If a full-size Dual Rectifier is likely to cause you problems with your neighbours, this mini-MESA/Boogie is your answer. All the tone of the 90s classic is scaled down into a 25-watt tone machine that will work great for at home, in the studio and on stage. Especially at this price, with $330 off at Guitar Center.
Boss GT-1000 multi-FX:
Was $1,099, now $899
With hundreds of Boss amp, effect and speaker models, plus loads of tactile controls, foot switches and an expression pedal, the GT-1000 puts the Boss tones you know and love at your feet. It’s got a looper, plenty of connectivity, and for a limited time only, $200 off at Guitar Center!
Wampler Tumnus overdrive:
The mightiest mini pedal of all time? Yes! Nothing can rival the original Tumnus for versatility as an always-on, lead drive / boost and gain stacker with your other pedals. It's not just cheaper than over $6,500 cheaper than a gold Klon Cenatur, but a lot smaller too. Now the price has shrunk down at Guitar Center as well!
Wampler Tumnus Deluxe overdrive:
The best klon around with even more options and $30 off at Guitar Center. This is a very easy deal to recommend! Brian Wampler's latest take on his winning overdrive pedal formula now has a three-band EQ for enhanced shaping, Hot and Normal modes to choose between original Tumnus and a higher gain and the choice of buffered and true bypass. A great pedal at an even better price for Cyber Monday.
Xvive U4 wireless system:
Was $229, now $183
If you want to go wireless, XVIVE’s U4 system gives you everything you need for long-lasting, rock solid transmission. In this 20% off deal you’ll receive one transmitter and one receiver. Just hook up your in-ear monitors and you’ll be enjoying pristine, cable-free sound in no time.
was $529 now $249
Given Guild is one of the most storied acoustic guitar builders on the planet, you wouldn’t typically see its acoustics in a beginner roundup. But with an astonishing $280 off – that’s 53%, percentage fans – you can get a record-and-gig-ready acoustic as your very first. Available with a solid Sitka spruce top (a feature normally only found on more expensive models), plus mahogany sides and built-in Guild electronics, this Charcoal Burst-finished model is an undeniable bargain at this price, and one of the most impressive offers we’ve seen this year.
D'Angelico Premier Bedford SH:
Guitar Center is offering a huge $390 discount on this stunning semi-hollow offset from D'Angelico. It's got retro charms a-plenty, but a seriously flexible HSS setup that – thanks to the Duncan Design mini humbucker – gives you access to a huge range of tones, but doesn't look like it's been culled from a Super Strat...
Epiphone SG Special-I:
Was: $199, now: $149
For those wanting to harness their inner Angus, you will not find a deal more perfect than this Epiphone Special-I SG, which is 25% off at Guitar Center. Young AC/DC fanatics will be able to cut their teeth on the real deal, with the guitar offering a no-nonsense wraparound bridge and a dual humbucker setup for classic rock tones.
Line 6 Catalyst 200:
$499.99, now $379.99
The powerful Line 6 Catalyst 200 is a fantastic modeling amplifier and now you can get it for much less over at Guitar Center. It's got a hefty $100 discount, making it phenomenal value for such a powerful and versatile amplifier.
Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals: FAQ
When is Cyber Monday?
The Cyber Monday Guitar Center sale itself kicks off on Monday, 27th of November, three days after Black Friday.
Although the event doesn't officially take place until this date, just like most retailers, the Guitar Center Cyber Monday deals will certainly start rolling out sooner. Last year, GC was slashing prices from as early as late October and didn't stop until well into December.
What can you buy in the Guitar Center Cyber Monday sale?
Despite its name, Guitar Center actually stocks pretty much everything any musician could want, so it's a great place to go if you want to give your studio an overhaul, upgrade your guitar rig, start drumming or any other musical activity that tickles your fancy.
You might head to the website planning to buy an electric guitar, but the company also sells all the music-making products you could ever wish for: MIDI keyboards, studio monitors, microphones, beginner digital pianos and much more.
The Guitar Center Cyber Monday sale is also the time to stock up on those music-making essentials and accessories: acoustic guitar strings, guitar tuners, guitar picks and guitar straps are just the start. If you can make music with it, it's more than likely that Guitar Center will have it and it will enjoy some sort of discount on Cyber Monday.
