The CD add-on is a joke. Despite the magnificent playing of the great Greg Koch, I was left wondering why Fender didn't spring for a DVD of performances by the great Strat players. Hearing Greg play a few snippets in each player's style is just plain dumb. I hope his check cleared.
A great testament to a dedicated guitar making genius.
I read this book primarily for pleasure since I love playing Fender guitars and I appreciate their design, but I was also wanting a proper overview of the design history so I could learn which years the best guitars were manufactured. I had lots of information, many facts and rumours from various sources but I wanted an overall context, a way of making sense of the whole picture and close up the gaps in my knowledge. This book was the perfect way to do it.
Because it's chronological, I got a great overview and it made it much easier to remember what happened and why it happened and how it impacted the guitars' quality and design: features, like neck, pickup and body changes. Also the overall arch of management and CBS buyout and gradual ongoing restoration of the brand.
It's also beautifully photographed and put together.
There are more technical books you could read which list design changes, more like a manual, but I think this is the right balance of manufacturing detail and general history to begin with.
There is not one of the 264 pages that doesn't include a great picture, from the first strats, to rare prototypes, to newer models, custom shops and stars' models.
The book includes many excerpts with key memebers of the Fender factory in 1950's, including the man himself, Leo Fender, along with Bill Carson, Freddie Tavares and many others. The author dove into his archives to present the most accurate history of the Strat to date, from its inception, the two horns, the origin of the famous peghead and all the details of the most loved guitar.
Rare pictures from the early 50's tell the tale along with narration from the author and dozens of interviews. This book includes an Audio CD with fragments of interviews with Leo Fender, plus 50 different sounds the Strat has become famous for, in the styles from player like Eric Clapton, Hendrix, Knopfler and Malmsteen, you can even learn to make your Strat sound like a Koto, from Japan!
In all, just the pictures in this book are worth the price, the history, interviews and Cd are a great plus. Celebrate the 50th anniversary of the instrument that shaped modern music with this great book.
