Endorsements

  • “The Strat continues to appeal, continues to work, continues to speak to the musician looking to express himself. This is not a Luddite perspective or necessarily even a vintage-purist kind of thing. It's simply a recognition that unlike almost all other mid-'50s designs, the Stratocaster has stood the test time, even in a field of music that has seen revolutions come and go. That's the enduring quality of the Fender Stratocaster. It is a direct connection to your head and your heart...” – Justin Norvell, VP Product Marketing, Fender Musical Instrument Company
  • “There is a sacred geometry to everything, including making guitars.” – from the Foreword by Eric Johnson
