As an owner of 3 Stratocasters I thought I new almost every thing about a Strat " I was wrong ". Tony Bacon go's deep into the history of Leo Fender's invention. He also explains how MR.Fender beat out his competition (Gibson )with one stroke of genius : the working Tremelo,Leo's design is so much better than the Bigsby. Buy this book.
