    I just got this catalog in the mail. I think Guitar Center is stalking me on the internet. They know what I like:

    GC has 15% off “everything,” although the usual restrictions apply. There is something at my local shop that's even a better deal than the Guitar-a-Thon.

    I was hoping for an across-the-board discount from Sweetwater. There are a few things I need for our home studio

    Thomann Germany has Cyberweek with lots of items discounted. I think they’re stalking Jim.

    G5232T in Midnight Blue is 14% off so €498 instead of €577.

    Also a Harley Benton LP DC Jr. in Benton blue(like a bright Daphne) with a FAT neck. €150 instead of 200.

    Big belly, skinny legs. In fact my athlete son and I are sharing the same size when it comes to jeans. When it comes to t-shirts...well...

    I ordered a set of Grover locking tuners for the Les Paul. (Free) Shipping notification initially said 7-10 days. It arrived in two.

    :rolleyes:


    Although it’s Saturday, I feel like this was somehow related to the topic at hand.

    Hmmmmmm….
    I haven’t received anything from them for a long time either - and used to get their mailings regularly. Seems kind of odd as I’ve made several purchases from GC within the past couple of years (although maybe buying used gear from their website puts me in a different demographic category).

    I've gotten catalogs from Woodwind/Brasswind in the last year. Don't think I need a $22K bassoon. Otherwise, the best Black Friday deal I've had is being able to stay at home, save money, and avoid the crowds.

    This is the post to remind people that if you actually call, they will apply the coupon to almost anything that is not 'on sale.'

    Legally, due to contracts that include MAP (minimum advertised pricing), they cannot advertise that they will give 15% off, but they will.

    Well I did find a great Black Friday deal. Saved a good amount on a the new GoPro 10 camera bundle. I’m giving my GoPro 7 to a buddy today as he heads up North for a year or so.

    Guitar Center exclusive for Black Friday. 20% off the MAP of $499 (so $399+tax). Too cool to pass up. I've got 15 Fenders and this is my second Squier in two months and I have to say the quality is incredibly good at this price point.
