Leo Fender introduced the world to the solidbody electric guitar in 1950 with the instrument we know now as the Telecaster. He soon added two more classics: the Precision Bass (1951) and the Stratocaster (1954). Fender's sleek, adaptable guitars have since fueled modern music and have been heard in the hands of virtually every guitarist of note, from Buddy Holly to Kurt Cobain, Eric Clapton to John Mayer. This book takes you year-by-year through the Fender story with an unrivaled gallery of color photographs of instruments, players, and memorabilia. Revised and updated, it expands upon "50 Years of Fender" (49-330592), covering nine more years of the Fender story, through 2009. 144 pp.
