In 1951, Leo Fender transformed popular music with the advent of the very first mass-produced solid body electric guitar, now known as the Telecaster. Leo also broke ground with the development of the very first fretted solid body electric bass guitar known as the Precision Bass guitar. Today, Fender Musical Instruments Corporation is recognized as a premier brand for electric guitars, bass guitars, guitar amplifiers, bass amplifiers, and even pro audio equipment. Superior tone, quality, and innovation still remain synonymous with the Fender name.
Introduced in 1954 and known for its ergonomic “Comfort Contour” body and signature sound, the Stratocaster remains a staple in the world of electric guitars. A guitar that’s heavily imitated yet never surpassed, the Stratocaster is the choice instrument for a wide range of guitarists due to its incredible sonic versatility and superb player comfort. From pop and punk to blues and rock (and everything in between), the Strat has proved itself to fit the bill for any player or style. The Stratocaster has even be found in the hands of world-class players such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Robert Cray, Eric Johnson, David Gilmour, the late, great Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and countless others! Here at Sam Ash, we always stock an expansive selection of latest Stratocasters for every player in every price range!
With prototypes introduced in 1951, the electric guitar that’s now known as the Telecaster (or Tele) changed music history forever with its revolutionary solid body design. Today, the Telecaster is still as popular as ever with players from all walks of life. Adored by country, blues, rock, and pop guitarists for its signature twangy sound, players such as Bruce Springsteen, Brad Paisley, Tom Morello, Keith Richards, Syd Barrett, George Harrison, Joe Strummer, and many more have all adopted the Tele as their instrument of choice. Be sure to check out our always-growing inventory of Telecasters to see all the newest additions!
