The Fender Stratocaster is arguably the most iconic, most played, and most copied electric guitar design of all-time. Fender launched the Strat in 1954, and the model evolved throughout the '50s and '60s. With the CBS purchase of Fender in 1965, the classic era of Strat production ended, and subsequent Strats are of considerable less interest to collectors than pre-cbs examples. For many collectors, the 1970s are considered the low-point of Fender quality.
Years of Production: 1954 - present
Body Style: Solidbody, double cutaway
Wood Composition: Alder body, Maple neck with veeneer Rosewood fingerboard
Design Elements: Bolt-on neck, dot inlays, 3 single-coil pickups, 5-way pickup selector
Finish Specifications: Black is a common color for '70s Strats.
Notable Players: Bob Dylan, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, David Gilmour
