I just picked up one of these 1x12 V30 (to my own specs). They are beautiful cabs and the maker is responsible for a lot of more known brands, as you can read too. I f'd up and bought it the day before the price drop. :(

Guitar Center $50 gift cards for 20% off ($40). I added 10 to my cart, so apparently there’s no limit. This will obviously get you 20% off ANYTHING... even used gear.

https://www.paypal.com/us/gifts/brands/guitar-center-promo

This might be a huge deal if the gift cards can be used for anything at guitar center.

Meaning: Get the gift cards, then negotiate at the store (say) a 15% discount. Once you factor in the gift cards, the total discount will be roughly 32%. Before tax.

For example suppose the store has a guitar marked at $1,175 and you talk them down to $1,000. You then pay with $1,000 of gift cards that only cost you $800. Your total discount is ($1,175-$800)/$1,1175 = 32 percent.

AND...

With a GC Gear Card they give you 5% back on future purchases.

I didn't find one thing I wanted in any of the Black Friday sales. It's mostly junk they're trying to get rid of, not a sale on the stuff everyone wants. Everything that I actually wanted was ineligible as soon as it hit the cart.

However, in the process of checking them out I did find a nice deal (Reverb) on a pedal I'd been considering so it wasn't a total waste of time :)

Cheapest I've seen these excellent tuners go for, and this is the black one to boot:

This thing is dead-nuts accurate and you can strum all the strings and it will tell you which ones are out:


That's pretty cool. I have a clip on for quick tuning but the one I like the most for accuracy is the Peterson strobe tuner app for iPad. It's like getting a professional strobe tuner (but with a better display) for ten bucks :)

:)

The list of items not eligible is a mile long.

Give me 15% off a Fender amp I've been wanting and I'll hit the buy button.

No discount.. take my wallet elsewhere.
