The Fender Stratocaster is one of the most recognizable and iconic electric guitars ever created. Since its first unveiling over 55 years ago, the beautifully contoured instrument has graced the hands of such masters as Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and countless others.

Here, the author details the history of the guitar by providing profiles on the signature instruments of a number of those musicians, including Bonnie Raitt and Vaughan.

The history is laid out in chronological chapters that follow the evolution of the instrument from the 1950s to modern-day models. Read this and you'll learn everything you wanted to know spec-wise, including detailed information on bodies, necks, plastics, electrics/wiring, hardware, and even cases.

There are a number of books available on the history of the Stratocaster, but here - in just under 150 pages - you can find just about everything you need.
