Who plays a Strat? Probably everyone who’s ever picked up an electric guitar. Played by musical greats like Eric Claption, Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Guy, Mark Knopfler, Ronnie Wood, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robbie Robertson, and a million others… the Fender Stratocaster has its name carved into the history of rock and roll. Manufactured in Corona California, the Strat is made from the best woods and crafted by ultra-skilled hands. Each American Series Stratocaster begs to be played.

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.

    The more finish you put on it, the less the wood vibrates and sings? Is that why all the fenders are put into a thick coat of polyurethan? :/

    I've had three Mexican Fender guitars in my lifetime (two Strats and a Tele). I've been playing professionally (gigging) for now almost 47 years and let me tell you these beauties are indestructible and the among the most reliable guitars in my collection and I have been through almost every make out there. Do not degrade the great work by the employees at the Mexico plant, their dedication to detail is simply spot on.

    This reminds me of the time that my great grandpa tried selling a telecaster for 3000 dollars to my grandpa and he said no. It still hurts me to think about that

    when they said startocaster gives the sound i would disagree. Me personally i feel like guitar strings and the amp u use is what makes ur guitar sound good.

  24. Avatar

    Tremolo is the sound u get when u wiggle your whammy bar up and down. while vibrato is when u shake the string itself.

    If u were gonna buy a strat dont get a squire, just get the normal ones. even tho it's gonna cost more trust me, it's worth the price.
