3 Used Fender Guitars You Can Afford
When it comes to finding high-end performance for a mid-level price there might be no better way to go than a used fender guitar.
Here are 3 models to keep in mind when looking for a cheap used fender guitar to help you save money–and get a great deal.
Option No.1: The World-Famous Stratocaster
Whether its the space age solos of David Gilmour or the ranuchy blues vibe of Eric Clapton, throwing a Fender Strat over your shoulders might be the quickest way to insant cool cred.
If you’re looking for an old-fashioned vintage vibe, go with the Fender American Standard. (It’s all about the single-coil pick ups.) Though they can go over a grand, when new, used models can usually be located for about 600 dollars or less.
Another way to go is the Fender Standard Stratocaster. Cheaper than the American standard, this model made in Mexico sounds way better than you’d think for a guitar that runs about 250-300 dollars new. (Obviously less so used.)
Looking for Stratocaster used fender guitars for under 200 dollars? Go with a Squier Stratocaster. These models made in places like China and Indonesia may not have the same exact high-end strat sound, but they’re perfect for beginner’s and part-time players.
Option No.2: The Fender Telecaster
If, instead, you’d like more of a rich and bright vibe to your guitar sound than you’ll want to look for a used telecaster. Just like the Strat, the Telecaster has different model versions, such as the higher-end Telecaster American Standard and the mid-level Telecaster Standard.
Yet the best deals on a used fender telecaster might be with the American Deluxe. It’s got a super comfy guitar contour body, not unlike the Strat, coupled with an awesome bright register, typical of the Tellys.
Option No.3: Fender Acoustic Guitars
Fender built its reputation on Leo Fender’s electric guitar. But some of the most underrated-and best sounding-guitars are acoustic used fender guitars.
Options like the Starcaster acoustic or the DG8S offer fine craftsmanship and awesome tone. (They also tend to hold onto their overall value–a great asset when buying used guitars.)
And if you like one-stop shopping, Fender offers a ton of great acoustic packages, where you can get a case, tuner, strings and a great guitar to boot.
