This is the first hands-on how-to manual devoted to a guitar—the legendary Fender electric guitar, the Stratocaster! This guidebook shows owners and dreamers the basics of selecting and buying Strats, maintenance and repairs such as tuning, setting intonation, tremolo alignment, fret repairs, bridge and nut adjustments, electrics troubleshooting, spur-of-the-moment stage-side fixes, and some basic “performance” enhancements like adding “hot rod” fender and aftermarket pickups, locking-tremolo nuts, and more.
