If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Fender Strat, then this early-Black Friday deal is the one for you. Guitar Center has reduced the prices on a select number of Fender Player Stratocasters by up to $210, which means you could have one resting in your hands for as little as $599. Get in quick though because this pre-Black Friday deal ends on November 15.

The Player series is classed by Fender as entry-level instruments, but we think that’s doing them a serious injustice. Build quality, tonewoods, hardware and that characteristic Strat sound are all spot on – it really can be tricky to tell these Mexican-made instruments apart from their much more expensive US counterparts.

Simon Fellows

When Simon's childhood classical guitar teacher boasted he 'enjoyed a challenge', the poor man had no idea how much he'd underestimated the scale of the task ahead. Despite Simon's lack of talent, the experience did spark a lifelong passion for music. His classical guitar was discarded for an electric, then a room full of electrics before Simon discovered the joys of keys. Against all odds, Simon somehow managed to blag a career as a fashion journalist, but he's now more suitably employed writing for Guitar World and MusicRadar. When not writing or playing, he can be found terrifying himself on his mountain bike.
