When will the Black Friday Guitar deals land?

2022's Black Friday guitar deals will officially rear their heads on the day after Thanksgiving - Friday, November 25th. Leaving less than a month between then and Christmas Day, it's probably the best time to load up on Christmas presents for the special guitarist in your life. Black Friday's best guitar deals will last that whole weekend (or Cyber Weekend, as it's also known) before culminating in a Cyber Monday guitar deals frenzy on Monday, November 28th.

The events of previous years tell us that November 25th isn't the only day you can get some ridiculous savings. Many of the best Black Friday guitar deals will crop up in the weeks leading up to Black Friday - some as early as mid-October - and many deals will still be on offer leading up to Christmas Day. 

If a bargain is what you're after during this Black Friday/Cyber Monday period, then you'd better keep your eyes and ears peeled at all times. Deals will be launched at random times of the day - or night - so it's worth keeping an eye on your favourite retailers to make sure you get what you're after. We'll be scouring the web for the best Black Friday guitar deals as well, so keep an eye on this page too.

What Black Friday Guitar deals should I expect?

We'll be keeping a close eye on the biggest guitar retailers throughout the next few months. Based on what we saw last year, the Musician's Friend Black Friday deals and Guitar Center Black Friday deals brought about some killer deals for guitarists - so we'll be looking to those retailers for some of the best deals on electric and acoustic guitars, guitar audio interfaces, guitar amps, effects pedals and guitar accessories.

When it comes to electric guitars, Black Friday is one of the best opportunities to pick up an absolute steal. Last year, we were inundated with deals on the ever-popular Fender Player Series Stratocaster from Guitar Center, and Musician's Friend knocked a bundle off some of the best metal guitars and tasty valve combos. We'll be expecting some very similar (and hopefully even better) deals this year from Guitar Center and Musician's Friend.

For those that wanted to do a bit of home recording, the best place to look was definitely Positive Grid - who knocked a lofty 50% off the price of their BIAS FX 2 and AMP 2 software. Generous, eh? Again, we're expecting to see some major discounts this year.

For the pedal nerds among us, we're expecting some big savings on brands like Boss, JHS, Line 6, MXR and Digitech, if last year's deals are anything to go by. 

We've been covering Black Friday guitar deals for a long old time now, so you can rest assured that we'll be scouring the web, scouting out the best deals on all the guitar gear you can dream of, and sharing them with you right here first. 

Black Friday guitar deals: Discounts and coupons

Black Friday guitar deals aren't always about single products with massive savings. Some retailers opt for discounts that can be redeemed through a discount code - a code which can often be used on a wide range of products.

As an example, last year Sweetwater was offering up to 70% off a range of guitars, amps and effects, as well as Guitar Center and Musician's Friend offering up to 15% off select products. 

How to prepare for the Black Friday guitar sales

The best way to prepare for the impending Black Friday guitar deals is to get your research done sooner rather than later. That way, you'll know exactly what you're looking for, and can jump on a great deal as soon as you spot it. 

Thankfully, that's something we can help you with. We recommend you spend some time thumbing through our up-to-date, expert buying guides and reviews - they should arm you with all the knowledge you need in order to buy the best electric or acoustic guitars, acoustic guitar strings, guitar tuners, and loads more.

Wondering what else is available during Black Friday 2022? That's a pretty huge question - with bargains to be had on a huge range of tech like iPads, iPhones, noise-cancelling headphones and Airpods. You can even pick up things like washing lines, firepits, fridge freezers and dog shampoo with huge discounts - but we'll just be focusing on the Black Friday guitar deals over here. 

Black Friday guitar deals: Is it worth waiting for the deals?

So, is it truly worth waiting until Black Friday to make the most of a Black Friday 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 the best early Black Friday guitar deals starting from as soon as the start of October - and from now until November 26th, you can expect to see the biggest retailers dropping prices on some killer products. 

Most places will keep their best deals for Black Friday and Cyber Weekend though - leading through to the Cyber Monday guitar deals the following Monday. If you want to make the biggest savings, we'd hang on until the event itself.

Black Friday guitar deals: Will stock be an issue?

While we don't foresee any world-ending stock disruption this Black Friday, it's worth taking note that some of your favourite retailers might struggle to get hold of the most in-demand products. 

Due to the current state of our post-pandemic world, there may be delays on products being shipped to distribution centers or to your front door - so if you see a deal that you know you want, we'd suggest you jump on it sooner than later.

For those in the UK, things are a little more complex. A combination of the pandemic and Brexit is causing shortages of HGV drivers and fuel, meaning that stock of certain popular products could be hard to replenish.

If you're in the market for one of the best guitar VST's though, or any other software, then now's your chance to fill your boots!

Black Friday guitar deals: What happened last year?

Last year's Black Friday guitar deals were nothing short of ridiculous, with hundreds of dollars slashed off the price of popular guitars, amps and accessories.  

Obviously, we're hoping to see more deals like these again this year, but we are wishing for even more generous offers. Here are a few offers from last year to give you some idea of what you can expect from 2022's Black Friday guitar deals.
