    And without it, there would be no Hendrix, no Clapton, no SRV, as we know it today.
    Talents like those will find their way out regardless of instrument choice. But it sure didn't hurt to have some Strats at hand.

    Regardless, the Strat is a wonderful instrument. Big thanks to Freddie Tavares, George Fullerton, and Leo Fender for dreaming this one up. "Let's make a guitar that looks like a Corvette!" THAT sure worked a charm, didn't it.

    I enjoyed that. The strat is the most coolest looking guitar ever built. It sure would be nice though if Fender would start building the shorter scale necks for strats again like they did in the 80s. The contemporary had a 24 3/4 scale neck. Awesome playing imo.

    Cheers

    I'm kind of glad that it turned out the way it did.
    It's not just a guitar. it's an entire culture, an entire lifestyle, pretty remarkable way to change the world.
    Awesome.
