It's no secret that here at Guitar World, we absolutely love the Fender Player Series. These affordable and highly versatile guitars offer players superb value for money and more than deliver that iconic Fender sound we all crave. Now, while the Player Series does come in a variety of finish options, we still get excited when a new exclusive colorway drops. 

Guitar Center has just launched the Fender Player Saturday Night Specials, which sees the Stratocaster, Telecaster and Precision Bass get a rich dark blue makeover and custom-wound Seymour Duncan Saturday Night Special pickups.
