Overview

The Stratocaster. The Telecaster. During the quarter-century following World War II, Fender guitars didn't just make music. They made musical history.

It will be irresistible to anyone interested in guitars, rock 'n' roll, or mid-century American collectibles and ephemera. Like the guitars it documents, the book simply brings down the house.

Editorial Reviews

The Telecaster; The Stratocaster; The Jazzmaster; The Precision Bass: For many guitar aficionados, these "golden age" Fender guitars set the standard for musical excellence and coolness. If you admire these electric treasures and, like most of us, can't afford them, this lavish 288-page hardcover pictorial qualifies as the best possible substitute. Fender: The Golden Age 1946-1970 contains 250 photos of these exemplar instruments, including pictures of several extremely rare Fenders now in private collections. A keeper; a keepsake.
