Your Favorite Fender electric guitar?

As an authorized Fender dealer serving Central Illinois for over 36 years, we’ve carried almost every Fender Electric Guitar model you can think of.  As a dealer, these different models of guitars become like children; how do you pick a favorite?  Of course there is the Telecaster; Deluxe, Thinline, Custom, Standard, American Standard and more.  Then, there is the Tele’s “brother,” the Stratocaster:  so many styles to choose from…American Deluxe, American Special, American Standard, Standard, HH, Anniversary, and many of the Limited Edition FSR (Fender Special Run) models.  It’s so hard to pick a favorite…especially when you consider all of the other members of “the family”:  Jazzmaster, Mustang, Jaguar, Starcaster and more.  This is when it becomes obvious that it really isn’t like a family.  You can pick your favorite model or pick them all.  Whether you are from Effingham, Terre Haute, Decatur, Champaign-Urbana, Sullivan, Shelbyville, Mattoon, or Charleston…we welcome you to pay our guitar store a visit and let us know which member of the Fender family is your favorite.
