The Fender Stratocaster just may be the ultimate guitar. Curvaceous and stylish. Anatomically perfect for playing. Three pickups and a whammy bar. Tone to die for. And somewhere along the way, it changed the world of music.
In the hands of players from Eldon Shamblin to Stevie Ray Vaughan, Ike Turner to Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy to Eric Clapton, the Stratocaster has been central to country, blues, punk, rock 'n' roll, even jazz.
Here is the complete story of this legendary guitar. Packed with more than 700 photos and memorabilia, plus profiles of the great Strat players, this book is the perfect tribute to the Stratocaster.
Dig in and feel the music.
"The Strat was and still is the most recognizable image, sound, and pioneering guitar to ever make music. The first time I saw a Strat was with Buddy Holly and the Crickets on 'The Ed Sullivan Show'. At the same time, I got a copy of 'Out of the Shadows' from England and saw my first red Strat. The sound had me hooked." (Randy Bachman, from the foreword)
"I mostly play the Fender Stratocaster. I like its body shape, the sense of manipulation, its clarity. I've been playing Strats pretty much my whole life." (Lenny Kaye)
