There aren’t many guitars as iconic as the Fender Stratocaster. Its sound is as instantly recognizable as its style, and its seemingly never-ending popularity speaks volumes about the build and sound quality. The Fender Strat has appeared in the hands of a huge range of guitar icons - Hank Marvin, Hendrix, David Gilmour, Jim Root - and created some of the best electric guitar tones of all time. Now’s the time for you to recreate those tones, and discover your own, with up to $160 off these Limited Edition Fender Player Stratocasters in Guitar Center’s Guitar-A-Thon sale. 

Guitar Center’s sale covers a pretty massive range of guitar gear, from electric guitars, acoustic guitars, guitar amps and accessories - with big discounts to be had on everything. Even if you’re not a Fender fan, there are deals on loads of killer Gibson and Epiphone gear, as well as acoustics from Martin and Yamaha.

Some top-notch Black Friday guitar deals are on the horizon too - so if these savings are anything like what we'll see in official the Guitar Center Black Friday sale, we’re all in for a treat.

Fender Player Strat HSS Maple Fingerboard: $829, now $699
If you're more P!NK than Pink Floyd, then this humbucker-equipped equivalent might be a little more you. Delivering some fantastic modern and classic Strat tones, the combination of Player series single coils and the bridge humbucker really adds that extra kick of power. Now only $699, as part of the Guitar Center Guitar-A-Thon sale.

Fender Player Strat HSS Plus Top: $859

Fender Player Strat HSS Plus Top: $859, now $699
If the two previous Strats are a little too plain for your taste, then this HSS-configured Plus Top in Blue Burst may just be the one for you. It's a regular Player Strat at heart, but capable of just that little bit more than most Strats thanks to the Player Series humbucker in the bridge. You can save the most on this one, with $160 off until October 27.

I’m a Junior Deals Writer here at Guitar World - the ideal job for a gear nerd like myself. I, along with help from the rest of the eCommerce team, maintain and update our buyer’s guides and keep you up to date with the latest and best deals on killer gear. Before working on Guitar World I was a guitar salesman at a local music store, so I know a thing or two about matching people with their perfect instruments. I’ve also worked for online music distributors RouteNote, and toured the UK and Europe with my old band Hypophora. In my spare time, you’ll catch me writing songs, taking my greyhound, Simba, to the beach, or getting very nerdy about coffee.
