Black Friday is nearly upon us, that crazy time of year again when retailers try to tempt us early to part with our hard earned cash. But there are often some great Black Friday Guitar deals that can really save you money.
But what on Earth is Black Friday?
I have to admit that up until last year I had never heard of Black Friday. An American idea Black Friday is usually the last Friday in November and coincides with the last pay day before Christmas. Retailers in the US started offering massive discounts to attract shoppers to buy Christmas gifts early and the date became a regular feature in the American retail calendar. As with anything that starts in the US, give it a couple of years and it will make the trip across the Atlantic and soon become a feature in the UK. Amazon due to its US roots was the retailer to bring Black Friday to the UK but other retailers, not wanting to miss out on an opportunity, quickly jumped on the idea of Black Friday. And so an idea that started in the US was quickly embraced in the UK. In fact it has become so much a part of the run up to Christmas that this year analysts forecast that British consumers will spend £200 million on Black Friday.
But is there much in it for us Guitarists, are there any great Black Friday Guitar deals?
