Leo Fender's Stratocaster is arguably not only the iconic electric guitar but an enduring symbol of popular culture. Following on from the visionary Telecaster, the Stratocaster has captured the imaginations of players across generations and styles.
We are joined by Ian S. Port, US bestselling author of The Birth of Loud: Leo Fender, Les Paul and the Guitar-Pioneering Rivalry That Shaped Rock and Roll. Ian gives a unique historical perspective on the Strat's development and impact on popular music.
Australian guitarists Steve Edmonds and Phil Cebrano - both known as outstanding 'Stratsmen' - return to the Guitar Speak Podcast to detail the instrument's impact on their careers.
