The Fender Stratocaster

The Fender Stratocaster

In 1954 fender released what is generally considereded the stereotypical electric guitar, the Stratocaster. They had already revolutionized music with the Telecaster and Precision Bass but this next stage was arguably their masterpeice.  Perennially smooth, fashionable, smooth playing and tonally versatile, it has actually exceeded its function as music device to become nothing except a cultural icon. There is merely nothing that sings, screams, whispers, groans, roars, rocks and rolls like a Stratocaster.
