Leo Fender launched the Stratocaster electric guitar in 1954 as an upgrade to his revolutionary Telecaster. The 'Strat' - streamlined, chrome-plated, efficient, fast and sexy - soon gained icon status. Today, while original models change hands for thousands of dollars, almost identical Stratocasters are mass-produced by Fender USA for sale worldwide. The 'Strat' remains a low-maintenance 'good little runner' and, with the help of the second edition of this practical 'how to' manual, will last a lifetime.
