With this year's Black Friday guitar deals a matter of days away now, we're starting to get really excited about the gear bargains on the horizon. Guitar Center always puts on a great run of deals - like their current Holiday Sale (opens in new tab) - but we're most excited about the Black Friday deals preview that just landed in the Guitar Player inbox.

What's even cooler is that the folks at Guitar Center have given us the green light to reveal some of the best deals early, to give readers a head start once they officially drop on Thursday November 24th; knowledge is power, after all. 

The full list of deals includes everything from strings, cables and other accessories that would make great stocking fillers, to big savings on premium brands including Fender, Taylor, Martin, Gretsch and Boss. If you're shopping for a younger player or someone new to the instrument, there will be great savings on beginner acoustic and electric guitars, as well as great value bundles. Many of the deals will be the best of the year, so if you've been holding out until now to get the most value for money, it will have been worth the wait.

We’ve trawled the pages of Guitar Center’s deals sheet to bring you our pick of the offers to look out for when they land on the 24th. We've included links through to each product too. They won't show the discounted prices yet, but you can bookmark any you fancy and the discounts will be there once you head back on the 24th. 

When the sale does eventually land, you can expect five days of deals, starting on Thursday November 24th and stretching through until Monday 28th.

In the meantime, Guitar Center has a whole host of holiday deals (opens in new tab) up for grabs right now on guitars and basses, amps and effects, accessories, recording gear and more.
