We're keeping our eyes open for Black Friday Deals in the run-up to the big day, and occasionally we stumble across something that isn't part an official Black Friday bargain, but is still worth getting excited about. 

This time it's Guns N' Roses Locked N' Loaded box set. Limited to 10,000 copies worldwide, it launched to enormous fanfare at a wallet-busting price, but is now being heavily discounted at the band's official merch site. 

The box set features a newly remastered version of Appetite For Destruction, B-Sides N’ EPs, the previously unreleased 1986 Sound City Session N’ More recordings, the Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide EP (which contains the extra track Shadow Of Your Love) and a whole lot more besides

Originally priced at $999 in the US, the set is now available for just $399

Sadly, the set isn't available from the UK branch of the same site, but it's possible you'll still save money if you ship from the US, even taking postage and import taxes into account (it's currently selling for over £1000 at Amazon).

Not all is lost for UK fans, though. The super deluxe edition of Appetite (you know, the one that has the music but not all the extra gubbins) is available for just £89.99 currently, which is more than £20 cheaper than Amazon.

Housed in a custom 12” x 12” x 12” solid-wood box that’s wrapped in faux-leather and sports embossed, instantly identifiable artwork with a hand-sculpted and hand-painted 3D cross on its front doors, the Appetite For Destruction: Locked N’ Loaded Edition is clearly the one true GN’R Holy Grail.
