The latest addition to Tony Bacon’s acclaimed series of guitar books, 60 Years of Fender gives a year-by-year history of the most successful electric guitar maker.

In 1950, Leo Fender introduced to the world the solid-body electric guitar – the instrument known as the Telecaster. He soon added two more classics: the Precision Bass (1951) and the Stratocaster (1954). Fender’s sleek, adaptable guitars have since fuelled modern music – from country to rock – and have been heard in the hands of virtually every guitarist of note, from Buddy Holly to Kurt Cobain, from Eric Clapton to John Mayer.

Illustrated with an unrivalled gallery of color photographs of instruments, players, and memorabilia, this revised and updated edition expands upon 50 Years of Fender (published in 2000), covering nine more years of the Fender story.
