    Black Friday...What’d you get and why?

    I got a set of Darkmoon Overkill pickups in gold mother of pearl. They are running a 25% off coupon and I’ve been wanting these for my next build.

    You?

    I’m looking at a 2003 TV Yellow Melody Maker with a P90.

    I’ve been looking for a cheap priced used TV Jones magna’tron and they don’t come up often.
    Saw one on eBay last night and put in a lowish offer hoping the seller needed some Black Friday spending money.
    They took the $85 and then I made my first ever order from sweetwater for a TV Jones universal mount plate at full price.

    Peterson StroboStomp HD Pedal Tuner. It was $30 off at Sweetwater, so my wife is giving me that for Christmas.

    Why? I kind of wanted a strobe pedal, and hey - it was $30 off, so...

    I'm way ahead of you guys. I did all my shopping on Tuesday, a new windshield wiper motor (20 % off) and 3 - $.99 tacos (Taco Tuesday).

    I edited my post - it was "$30 off", not $30. It was $99 rather than $129.

    Sorry about the typo; that was the first one this year. Almost made it! :lol:

    I bought 20 liters of renovation paint instead of 15 liters. Whoo-hoo!

    ha ha! I heard that song on the radio today at work here in Holland. It is a quite popular classic rock piece. I was listening to it, thinking about how I had never heard this song before I moved to Holland, and wondering whether anyone else in the world even knew this song!

    Black Friday...What’d you get and why?

    I got tons of e-mails that got on my nerves.
    why? because it's black Friday :twisted:o_O

    Nothing, because I’m fundamentally opposed to being prodded into a fit of needless spending on what should be a peaceful holiday weekend spent with family and friends. Walmart employees ought to be granted the same.

    I am on my way to Lowe’s to pick up 6 ft of vinyl flooring for my never-ending bathroom-remodeling job. I wouldn’t call that a Black Friday purchase, but I’m expect Lowe’s to be a holiday-shopping hell.

    Epilogue: There were more people shopping at Lowe’s than I’ve ever seen, but the store was anticipating even more. They had about twice as many staff on duty than they needed. The guy who cut my vinyl sheet for me was very helpful and gave me 6” extra for free, so I didn’t have to buy a whole extra foot to allow some trim around the edges. Overall, the whole Black Friday shopping experience wasn’t bad.

    I hear that. I refuse to buy anything of any kind on Thanksgiving because I think people deserve a day off so I vote with my dollars. Moreover, I’m not crazy enough to go out and battle the angry hordes in the stores on a regular day much less Black Friday so I just click the button online. :)

    I got to sleep until about 7:30 and had coffee. Now I’m watching college football. I am not real fond of crowds. I only get up early to fish and don’t really like that.

    I got a day of rest.

    Not really a Black Friday purchase, but I very recently purchased a Fender Greta to sit on my desk as a noodling amp. I'll call that my Black Friday gift to myself since it was close enough.
