    It seems that there is a lack of Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals on musical gear this year. Or maybe I already have too much stuff?

    I was disappointed. I only found one thing, a pedal that I got for $50 off the regular price.

    There's a nice HP 14" Chromebook on Best Buy for $119. There was also an HP Win10 laptop that sold out fast.

    That's it for the deals. I need to get my middle daughter an alarm clock because she's having trouble regulating herself with sleep and waking.

    I didn’t find any deals on the things I wanted either. Mostly some pedals that I’ve been gassing for. Oh well... I’ll just save my money for another day.

    I get a number of items of ShopGoodWill but for whatever reason prices are being pushed way above what I'm willing to pay for minimal tested gear by people who have not a clue as to what they're looking at. I just wave stuff on by and say good luck with that. It's so bad that I was wondering if SGW people are ghost biding against the public.

    I know that I already have too much. After I sold my CV 60s Strat and Tele, I then bought the new CV 70s Strat, which I like even more than the Chinese CV models. I just sold my Deluxe Roadhouse with Texas Specials and I'm trying to sell my CV 60s Mustang too, 'cause it doesn't compare to my Strats. I'll still have my Am Pro, Am Performer, Player, CV 70s and Fernandes Strats, and my CP60s Strat too, which I'm also considering selling. Instead of so many Strats, maybe then I can find something else I like, like maybe a Jazzmaster, or a Gretsch. I've decided I don't really like short scale Fenders and Squiers, like the Jaguar and Mustang. I do like Jag pickups, so I think I'd like a Jag with long scale (25.5"), but that doesn't exist, unless I got a Jazzmaster and replaced the pickups with Jag ones.
    However, since I like the new CV Strat pickups so much, and I've always wanted a LPB Strat, the CV 60s Strat in LPB is calling to me. If my local Fender dealer had that when I got the black CV 70s Strat, I probably would have gotten the LPB one instead.

    Guitar Mill had a sale, I was thinking of buying a gift card at 15% off- that way I’d get a nice strat body for $128 instead of $150

    But I passed on it- maybe I just reached a point where I have too many unfinished projects?

    Wow ... you lost there between the multiple CVCPLPB's. Might you be ready to try another company ? Epiphone/Gibson, PRS, Godin, etc ?

    I honestly didn't see any that weren't just normal sale prices.
    Nothing good this year..

    Yep ... nada. Nothing. Very disappointed.

    No panic sales on CL and FBM either. I'm on there all the time looking for steals. :(
