HISTORY
Since its introduction by inventor Leo Fender on May 15, 1954, the basic design has remained unchanged, though it has certainly inspired many variations offered by Fender and other companies.

The Stratocaster was Leo Fender’s third offering in his line of solid-body electric instruments. The Strat followed the Telecaster Guitar and Precision Bass, which were introduced as prototypes in 1951 and brought to market the following year. Both instruments garnered success with musicians and Fender aimed to improve on his original designs as well as to expand his line with new models. He listened to comments from musicians and incorporated their ideas into the new instrument he had on the drawing board, which was to become the Stratocaster.

The name “Stratocaster” came from Fender’s business partner, Don Randall. It was intended to be reminiscent of aircraft technology, and reflect forward thinking and modern design. Indeed, it was — and still is — quite an innovative design!

Key differences between the Stratocaster and Telecaster:
The Stratocaster’s contoured cutaway body style was intended to improve balance and make the instrument more comfortable to play, as well as to allow greater access to the higher registers of the neck. A third (middle position) pickup was added to provide more tonal variations than the Telecaster could offer with only neck and bridge position pickups. But one of the most important new features of the Stratocaster was the tremolo bridge, which allowed players to bend strings in the same way a pedal steel player would.

    This so-called factory spokesperson is about as inarticulate as they come. He doesn't know the first fucking thing about electric guitar

    One thing is for sure – attention is paid more to productivity then quality, that's probably why so many lemons get past the QC guy at the end of the line,  The fit and finish is all over the place!

    "Pickups are tiny microphones", this is a great explanation! I couldn't have said it better myself.

    I’ve had many Fender Stratocasters . The Absolute Greatest Ones in my Opinion are My Custom Shop Yngwie Malmsteen Stratocaster And My Eric Clapton Stratocaster . Robin Trower would be Cool Too But I Cannot Afford Every Thing . I Believe Fender Should Buy Marshall Amplification.

    At 9:28 you can see the burr on the end of the fret. It will get shipped like that. Ridiculous.

    Solid body tone wood. The jangle definitely doesn’t come from the single coil pick ups.

    "The choice of wood for the body affects the sound of the guitar". No, it doesn't. Stop this nonsense. 99% of thid commentary is BS.

    I saw 2 white people helping build these guitars. They need to stop being racist and get more Diversity in their factories. I can't believe Fender is so racist!!!!

    The Strat has made its mark on music, its sound can be easily picked out from song to song, and so many great guitars players have used a Strat as their weapon of choice. That being said: a guitar with a bolt-on neck just seems to cheap to me.
