Fender has so many ranges and models that occasionally retailers need to clear out stock to make way for The Big F’s Next Big Launch. What that means for us is whopping great electric guitar and bass bargains.

This Prime Day has been no exception, with a bevy of Fender and Squier models seeing considerable discounts over the eagerly anticipated shopping period.

For seasoned players, we’ve spotted a Road Worn ’50s Tele and a bunch of Player Stratocasters worth snapping up, while beginners will find a number of Squiers ideal for taking your first steps in guitar.

Bassists can opt for a limited-edition Player Precision Bass or a very nicely spec’d Squier Contemporary Active Jazz Bass with dual humbuckers.

And for many, many more offers, head over to our guide to the best Prime Day guitar deals.
