Founded in 1946, Fender is one of the household names in the guitar world. This guitar company is responsible for several legendary guitar models but the first associations are Stratocaster and Telecaster. While the Telecaster is one of the first solid-body electric guitars ever, the Stratocaster is by far the most popular electric guitar around.
Besides legendary guitars, this company is also famous for some of the most iconic guitar amps, amps that shaped clean tones of electric guitars. These days, the company produces pretty much everything, including pedals, multi-effect processors, strings, pickups and all other kinds of parts and accessories.
The offer of electric guitars is huge and includes products that go in a pretty wide price range. While the most expensive models come from Fender Custom Shop and cost thousands of dollars, the most affordable models come from the company’s assembly in Mexico. These guitars are affordable but feature great overall quality. So, they seem like a perfect choice for beginners.
Stratocaster models from the so-called “Player” series are particularly great for beginners, as they offer genuine Fender quality and design at a reasonable price. Fender Player Strat comes in various finishes, with three Alnico V pickups and delivers everything you would expect from a product with this logo on a headstock.
