Cyber Monday Fender Deals: Quick Menu

Cyber Monday has officially ended, but there are some super Cyber Monday Fender deals available if you've arrived late to the party. The big 'F' are still offering guitarists huge savings of up to 50% off a range of their iconic instruments but for a limited time only.

The Fender shop still has many of the cheapest prices we've seen during Cyber Weekend, but if you prefer to do your shopping elsewhere there are plenty of great deals still available. Guitar Center has got $200 off a very Gilmour-esque Player Strat while Musician's Friend has also got some great deals, offering a huge $180 off a Player Telecaster Plus Top with a gorgeous flame maple veneer.

If you'd rather shop at Sweetwater, we spotted an excellent deal with a massive $300 reduction on a Fender Acoustasonic Telecaster. It's a limited edition finish that's only available at Sweetwater, so you literally won't find it anywhere else.

Below we've rounded up all the best Fender deals from every retailer for you, and we've handpicked some of the best deals available using our writing team's expert knowledge of Fender guitars, amps, and pedals.

Cyber Monday Fender deals: FAQ

When is the Fender Cyber Monday sale?

Cyber Monday 2023 will land on Monday, 27 November. The deals will typically extend into early December too, allowing anyone late to the party the chance to catch up or bag a last minute Christmas present.

How long is the Fender Cyber Monday sale?

Typically Cyber Monday sales go on for the whole weekend, but the deals won't be restricted to those four days. Previous experience tells us that some of the best Cyber Monday Fender deals will emerge well in advance of the event – for example this year we've seen reductions on Player Plus and Player Series guitars already. Some deals will also linger afterwards into December.

What Fender deals should I expect?

All major musical instrument retailers get in on the Cyber Monday Fender deals action, slashing prices on a wealth of products from beginner guitars to amps.

We've included some highlights from last year below, but some of our favorite deals were $150 off the price of the Fender Player Tele Plus Top, 50% off a one-year subscription to Fender Play, and 24% off the fabulous Squier 40th Anniversary Jazzmaster. Of course, there were many more offers to be had on amps, bass guitars, ukuleles, accessories, and even Fender-branded clothing.

The Amazon and Walmart Cyber Monday sales will be huge, too. Not only do they sell a fair range of music-making gear, but these are also the places to pick up things like wireless headphones and Amazon Echo devices.

What else can I buy in the Fender Cyber Monday sale?

Obviously, we are going to see a steady stream of discounted guitars and basses in this year's Fender Cyber Monday sale, but that's not all that will be on offer. We are likely to see prices slashed on Fender's online learning platform, Fender Play, too. In fact, last year we saw 50% off a one-year subscription, and we are hoping to see a similar - if not better - discount this year. 

Again, if last year is anything to go by, we will also see a slew of Fender official merchandise go on sale. This includes official t-shirts, hoodies, hats, and other wearables - meaning you can show the world who your favorite guitar brand is without breaking the bank.

Do Fender guitars hold their values?

As one of the biggest guitar brands in the world, for the most part, a Fender guitar will hold its value well. This is particularly true with Custom Shop and American-made models, as these are top-of-the-range instruments. Some limited edition models might even appreciate in value, although there are no guarantees with this sort of thing.

How to prepare for this year's Cyber Monday Fender deals

1. Create a wishlist early - There will be loads of Fender deals flying around on Cyber Monday weekend, so by creating a wishlist beforehand you'll be able to stay focused on what you need.

2. Work out what you actually need - Have a look at what you've already got in your collection and decide where the gaps are before making a purchase. If you've already got five Stratocasters, maybe it's better that you get something different like a Tele or a Jazzmaster!

3. Consider your music-making goals - Think about the future and what you want to achieve in your next year of music-making. A new guitar is great, but maybe what you actually need are some pedals to enhance your tone, or a new amp to give you a better base to build from.

4. Make some room - We all hoard gear here, and although parting with it can be really difficult, there are a couple of good reasons to get rid of stuff you no longer use. First up, you're potentially freeing up room in your home or practice space, for which your family and partner may well thank you. Secondly, you're potentially making more cash for a future gear purchase, whether that's an upgrade to your guitar or some much-needed accessories.

We've got loads of Fender and Squier buying guides which will make it a lot easier to pick a purchase in the Cyber Monday sale. Check them out below for more info:

How we choose the best Cyber Monday Fender deals

Here at Guitar World our team of writers are all actual musicians with years and years of experience reviewing and recommending music gear. We live and breathe guitar, playing live in our own bands, recording albums, and buying way too many guitar pedals.

As guitar player's ourselves, we want to match you with properly good gear, so we'd never recommend something we wouldn't use ourselves. 

For a recommendation to make the cut it has to first and foremost be a genuinely useful piece of equipment. It also has to be value for money, so we'll only ever recommend retailers that will give you a positive shopping experience.

Why you can trust our choices

All year round we're updating our buying guides and reviewing gear, but it doesn't stop there. We also search for the best deals year-round, as there's nothing quite as nice as getting that bit of gear you've been lusting after for less.

We've covered a lot of Fender deals throughout the year, including their massive Labor Day sale with up to 30% off, some select Amazon Prime Day deals which saw reductions on the Squier 40th Anniversary models, and their Summer Strum event with 20% off ukuleles.
