Entry Level?

I think Fender’s entry-level Player Series offers guitarists a lot of bang for their buck. The street prices are generally a lot less than the RRPs quoted here and so it means you can pick up a bargain with these Mexican made instruments.

If you want the big F on your headstock and love vintage style/tones, then I think that these four new models are a great option for you. Definitely ones to go check out at your local Fender dealer.
