i'm from Brazil, and i have a brazilian Fender Stratocaster , made from Giannini, and this book help-me for bought my guitar, Fender is very good. sorry for my poor English
This book is very detailed in the history of the Stratocaster and has some good historical information about Fender and CBS. Great detail for learning how to date a Stratocaster (especially for those novices looking to buy on Ebay). The information is chronologically presented and the text formatting is inconsistent. The b&w photos are printed poorly.
This book is in serious need of an update (it references through Stratocasters manufactured in 1993). There is also a purist approach to not consider Fender's 2nd line (the Squier Brand) which has (in some people's opinions), higher quality than what carried the Fender name (at least in the mid-80's).
In the absence of a better publication, I highly recommend this book.
The Fender Stratocaster: foreword by Eric Clapton There is a wealth of information here but much of it is poorly presented. Spelling errors on almost every page along with very poor quality photos give a very amateurish feel to what could be a well researched book. Wiring schematics that need a magnifying glass to examine could have been enlarged or left out. I'd like to see the new improved model.
