Fender Takes Top Two Spots on Reverb’s Best-Selling Guitars of 2021

Fender Takes Top Two Spots on Reverb’s Best-Selling Guitars of 2021

Reverb announced its best-selling guitars of 2021. Please check out the list below.

“While we’ve highlighted a lot of really unique, boutique, and standout guitar companies this year—like Aluminati Guitars and Gallo Guitars, to name just a couple—it’s not particularly surprising to see titans like Fender, Gibson, and Paul Reed Smith dominating this list. These longtime mainstays have much larger operations than the newer boutique brands, and due to their longevity, also tend to have more robust resale markets. For these reasons, you may not see even the most popular smaller brands represented here,” Reverb stated.

“This year, the classic Tele twang just edged out the Strat’s slap, with the top spot on this list going to the Fender Player Telecaster—part of the brand’s Made-in-Mexico line, similar to the Standard series from decades past. It’ll be interesting to see how Fender’s newly available and elevated Player Plus series will affect these placings next year.

“However, the Stratocaster did dominate the list overall, with various models taking seven of the top 20 spots to the Tele’s four. PRS also wiggled its way into the top three for 2021, thanks to John Mayer’s supremely popular Silver Sky signature—which could almost be counted as an eighth Strat model, being that its PRS’s take on one.”
