Fender Stratocaster,


The Fender Stratocaster, often referred to as a Strat, is a model of electric guitar designed by Leo Fender and Freddie Tavares in the early 1950s, and manufactured continuously to the present. The Stratocaster has been used by many leading guitarists, and thus can be heard on many historic recordings. Along with the Gibson Les Paul, the Fender Telecaster and the Gibson SG, it is one of the most enduring and common models of electric guitar in the world.

The Stratocaster has been widely copied; as a result "Stratocaster" or "Strat" is often used when referring to any guitar that has the same general features as the original, regardless of manufacturer. Such a guitar not produced by Fender or Squier is thus called a strat copy. However, in many jurisdictions the word "Stratocaster" is reserved solely for use by Fender and its subsidiary company, Squier.
