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.
