Fender Guitars Started a Musical Revolution.

Welcome to my Fender Guitar page. My name is Danny and Guitar Players Center is a site committed to distinguishing itself from the pack by providing our readers with real world unbiased, no holds barred guitar and gear reviews, articles and videos. We are not receiving payments or free equipment from manufacturers, we actually beg or borrow ( no stealing ) the latest guitars and gear from our large array of friends, band members, guitar stores, strangers. I play Fender Guitars, Strats in particular.

I have a classical background, however I haven’t touched my Gibson Classical guitar, or played classical music since I first heard Jimi Hendrix in 1966. He changed my life in the same manner Fender changed the guitar world. I have not found a guitar that suits me better.

That being said, for more than five decades, Fender electric guitars and amplifiers turned the world upside down and is probably the most influential instrument ever made in association to what we call modern music. While guitarists in the early part of this century played country, folk or blues on acoustic guitars, in the 1930′s, jazz musicians experimented with amplifying traditional hollow-body guitars so they could play with other instruments at the same sound level. One problem was that the speakers and pickups tended to generate feedback when played at a high level.

In the 1940′s, a California inventor named Leo Fender had made some custom guitars and amplifiers in his radio shop. Eventually, Leo would create the world’s very first instrument amplifiers with built-in tone controls. More importantly, though, was Leo’s vision of better guitar. With his knowledge of existing technologies, he knew he could improve on contemporary amplified hollow-body instruments . . . and improve upon them, he did. In 1951, he introduced the Broadcaster, the prototype solid-body guitar that would eventually become the legendary Telecaster. The Tele, as it became affectionately known, was the first solid-body electric Spanish-style guitar ever to go into commercial production. Soon to follow the Tele were the revolutionary Precision Bass guitar in 1951, and the Stratocaster in 1954.

    Hi,

    Sorry to waste your time with this as you sound like an expert in this area, only I’m in a position to spend some money on a couple of guitars, think I’ve narrowed it down to an Olympic White Stratocaster, and a Les Paul T-Stained Gibson.

    My questions are, is the 60 Relic better than a brand new Stratocaster??, is there a signature Stratocaster I should looking at??, and can you recommend a reputable dealer for these items??

    many thanks in advance.

  3. Richard, First off, I’m biased, I like and own a Clapton olympic white Strat! That being said, the type of guitar is personal and you need to play both types to makes a decision. The Gibson is heavier than a Strat, so it is more strain to hold for long periods. I recommend finding the nearest Guitar Center or mega guitar store and spend an afternoon or two playing guitars. I do it regularly . It is fun. A relic Strat is a custom shop Strat that is designed to look worn, for instance the Lenny Strat, a copy of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s looks worn out, but it is new. The Eric Clapton Strat is super versatile and plays like you would expect it to, great. Basically any American Strat is a great guitar. they are also set up better than Gibson guitars from the factory and are very affordable compared to most Gibson’s. Let me know what happens.

  6. I have a friend that clams he has a guitar tat was made for Jimi at the Fender plant but never got to him. Did Jimi order a bunch of Strats and frender ship them as jimi needed them. all indications my friend has points to this guitar “may have been made for Jimi but he passed and the Guitar went on open market. and found its way to my buddy. we spent hours last night picking this guitar apart. Can you supply me with any truth to this.

    • No, I can’t help there, it would be a great find. Maybe I could blog about it if you give me more info, and someone will respond. About 1500 people come by everyday.

      Let me know, either way,
      Danny
