If you're reading this, you probably don't need much of an explainer on the importance of Fender to the world of guitars.
From the Stratocaster - the world's best-selling electric guitar - to the Telecaster to the Jazzmaster, Fender often sets the tone for the rest of the industry.
The company also offers a truly dizzying array of guitars and guitar gear, with looks and sounds diverse enough to please everyone from twee singer/songwriters to masked metalheads.
Unsurprisingly, the company's Cyber Monday guitar deals also run the gamut of sounds and styles.
From the perfect beginner electric guitar – the Squier Bullet Mustang – to the Fender California Newporter Player acoustic guitar and the Fender Player Telecaster Plus – not to mention a number of nicely spec'd bass guitars – you can find great deals on any number of Fenders below.
