Memorial Day is upon us, and with that comes a barrage of amazing deals. While those deals are usually on things like hairdryers, washing machines, mattresses and car stereos, 2022 has brought with it some welcome change in the form of some huge Memorial Day guitar sales. This year we've seen nearly endless deals on electric guitars – including one of our all-time favorites, the Fender Player Stratocaster.

This Memorial Day we've seen Fender Strats on offer with a wide range of different finishes, pickup configurations, fingerboard materials – and even some rare limited edition models with their prices cut.
