Everyone likes the good old Strat. Many a guitar legends were made with this ax in hand. Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, Richie Blackmore… the list goes on! So why not get your hands on such a legendary piece of equipment?
The specifics of this guitar are as follows. Its body is made out of a combination of Alder and Maple with a gloss finish, which helps with the longevity of the guitar. It comes equipped with three player series Alnico 5 single-coil Stratocaster pickups. Its neck has a C”-Shaped profile. Its neck can be made out of either Maple or Pau Ferro and has a fingerboard radius of 9.5”. Finally, it comes with a 2-Point Synchronized tremolo bridge with bent-steel saddles. The tremolo is iconic on the Stratocaster and I’m sure it won’t disappoint.
Finally, the aesthetic. That’s one of the most iconic parts of the Stratocaster. Here you have a ton of options. It can come in black, white, sunburst, tidepool, aged cherry sunburst, buttercream, and tobacco sunburst. Whichever you choose, I am sure will not disappoint you.
The Fender Player Stratocaster HSS variant is for those players who want a little more “oompf” in their tone. Most of the specifications remain the same as the regular Stratocaster we just looked at, but this one has the added benefit of coming with a humbucker pickup instead of one of the single coils. Great for players who really want to rock out!
The body is made out of Alder and Maple with a gloss finish. The neck is made out of either Maple or Pau Ferro with a radius of 9,5”. It keeps its 2-point synchronized tremolo bridge with bent-steel saddles. As well as its C”-Shaped neck profile. The only difference is the added humbucker in the bridge pickup position. This small change alters the guitar tone entirely, giving it a more impactful and rich tone.
And now for those players who enjoy a bit more mellowness in their instruments. The Fender Jaguar offers you just that. The Jaguar is the most popular Fender model right after the Stratocaster and the Telecaster, and there are good reasons for that reputation.
This specific offer comes with the following features. Its body is made out of Alder with a gloss finish that helps protect the guitar. Its neck is made out of Pau Ferro, with no option for Maple sadly. Its fingerboard radius is 9.5”. Its neck comes with a C”-Shaped profile. And for its magnets, it has Alnico magnets in the following arrangement. One humbucker in the bridge position and one single coil in the neck position. Offering you the ability to perform in a variety of styles. And finally, it comes with a 6-saddle vintage-style Adjustable Floating tremolo tailpiece. This thing can take a beating – just don’t abuse it, and it will serve you well.
For the aesthetic, it can come in either black, 3-color sunburst, tidepool, buttercream, and polar white.
This Strat is a bit unique when it comes to its brethren, and if you’re anything like me – unique is the most attractive word in the English language. Here’s what’s so special about it.
The body is made entirely out of Alder with a gloss finish. Nothing new here. It also has a 2-Point Synchronized tremolo with block steel saddles. Nothing new here as well. But, it’s unique that it comes with a 12” radius on its fingerboard as well as rolled edges. It also has Player Plus Humbuckers with Noiseless Pickups. It also comes with the added benefit of having push-pull on the tone splits of its humbuckers. And, its tuning machines can be locked in place so that they don’t go out of tune while you’re playing. But the most obvious and striking difference is the Belair Blue finish which looks absolutely stunning.
We’ve talked about Cordoba guitars previously on here. Specifically, when we looked at the best Tenor Ukuleles. Well, Cordoba is more well known for their guitars, and this Black Friday, they are offering a 15% discount on their Mini II FMH. Here are the specifics.
The body is made out of Flamed Mahogany with a Satin polyurethane finish, even its neck is made out of the same material – just with a Pau Ferro fingerboard instead. The reason for its name is because it’s 1/2 the size of a regular guitar, with all the beauty of the full package – great for children!
It comes with a NuBone nut that has a width of 1.875”. A C-profile mahogany neck with a 22.875” scale length and a cutout for reaching the higher frets. And because they use natural wood in the product, it gives the guitar a comfortable look that can vary in color and richness depending on the wood grain. So, no two guitars will look the same, but they will all sound the same. So don’t worry about that part.
Jackson is one of those companies that offers a surprisingly good package at an affordable price, and that deal just got sweeter for Black Friday. Here’s what the Jack X Series Dinky DK2XR can do.
Its body is made up of a mix of Maple wood as well as Polar wood, with a 24-fret Laurel fretboard to boast. It comes equipped with 2 Jackson High Output Humbuckers – excellent for chugging along to your favorite riff. And, it also has a Floyd Rose tremolo that comes in black (to match the body color of course).
This guitar is an excellent idea if you’re planning to buy it as a gift. Especially if the recipient is a metalhead.
Traveler guitars aren’t new when it comes to designing guitars, they’ve been around since 1992. Their philosophy is, “design guitars that sound great and are easy to transport”. Speaking about transporting your guitar, you might want to look at grabbing a guitar case as well, we have you covered. We wrote about the best guitar cases previously. Keep your guitar safe people! Anyways, let’s see what the Vaibrant can do.
The Vaibrant’s body is made of a couple of wood types. Its body is made out of Alder, while its neck and fretboard are made out of Maple. The scale of the guitar is 25.5” for its neck and 33.25” for the whole guitar. It also comes with a precision made double locking tremolo. It comes with a HSH magnet layout. Two humbuckers for the neck and bridge and a single coil In between them. And finally, the Vaibrant also comes with its own signature Traveler gig bag.
The Vaibrant comes in three color schemes. Slime Green, Electric Yellow, and Hot Pink.
