(Image credit: Future)

Following the invention of the world’s first commercially viable electric guitar in 1950 - the Broadcaster, which would eventually get rebranded as the Telecaster - Fender created the Stratocaster in 1954. It would go on to become the best-selling guitar of all-time. 

Both instruments are still hugely popular to this day, from the affordable Mexican-made lines right through to their American flagships, bringing their rich sense of history, timeless aesthetics and world-class tones to stages and studios around the world. 

Perhaps Pink Floyd guitar hero David Gilmour said it best when he admitted “the Stratocaster is the most versatile guitar ever made, and it has this funny way of making you sound like yourself”. 

Here, we round up all the best Cyber Monday deals on the Big F's range in one handy wallet-baiting list.

These guitars bring high-quality, American-made instruments to new levels of affordability – featuring Fender’s high scoring Yosemite pickups that were designed in collaboration with multiple Grammy-winning producer/engineer Dave Cobb [Lady Gaga, Rival Sons, Chris Shiflett]. Both benefit from some carefully-considered modern appointments, but hark back to the tones and traditions of old.

The Player series Stratocasters and Telecasters are also notable for their affordability, costing roughly half of their American equivalents. That said, very little is lost in terms of tone or build – the instruments are simply made to American standards some 149 miles south of the main factory in Corona, California.
