Overview

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. 

Unique to the late 1970s models were a black pickguard, 5-way pickup selector and a three-bolt neck. The natural finish specimens from this era garner slightly lower prices.

 1954 - present (this generation 1971 - 1981)
