There’s a huge range so no matter what your playing style it’s worth a browse if you’re in the market for a new guitar.

With a selection of the best-selling mid-range guitars from the last few years, the Player Series is the perfect stepping stone for those looking to move up from a beginner instrument or seasoned players who want a quality number two for alternate tunings. With a healthy $50 discount on the regular price, the already excellent value-for-money Player series just got even more tempting.  

We’ve had a look over the sale and picked out a few of our favourites for you. First up is the absolute tone monster, the Fender Player Plus Stratocaster HSS. It’s got a hugely versatile tonal palette thanks to the HSS configuration with splittable humbucker. Add in a two-point tremolo with locking tuners for extra stability, and you’ve got a gig-ready guitar that can handle pretty much anything. Fender slashing the price by $100 down to $1,029.99 just sweetens the deal.

If you’re after something a little more distinctive, we’d have a look at the Fender Player Jaguar. It’s currently got a healthy $50 discount at the moment, meaning it only costs $829.99. With a unique pickup configuration, this Jag has a splittable humbucker in the bridge position and a single coil in the neck. Combine that with the expressive Jaguar tremolo bridge and you can add a lot of flair to your playing. It’s truly an instrument that doesn’t sound like anything else.
