For over 50 Years Leo Fender’s legendary Stratocaster has defined the shape and sound of the electric guitar. Here, for the second time, is a Haynes practical manual on the Ferrari of its class.


For this fully revised second edition additional coverage includes the American Standard, the Tremsetter, updated serial number information and 'key player' analysis of the Strats played by Buddy Guy and David Gilmour. Four new case studies have been added covering the digital VG-Strat, an affordable 'road worn', the rare and wonderful Strat XII and a custom-made Pete Townshend piezo-equipped Strat. Case studies also examine in detail everything from a '54 US-built Classic to Indonesian, Japanese, Mexican and Chinese variants.

This easy-to-use manual offers advice on how to get the best from your Strat, be it a budget Chinese Squier or the best the Corona Custom shop can deliver. With step-by-step guidance and clear colour photographs, including advice on changing pickups, adjusting a truss rod and understanding some great stage rigs.

Fourteen case studies examine in detail everything from a ’54 USA style Classic to Indonesian, Japanese, Mexican and Chinese variants. Hank Marvin supplies a foreword and there are ‘Tech Tip’ contributions from Eric Clapton’s and Mark Knopfler’s guitar technicians as well as Luthiers John Diggins and Andy Gibson.
