The Fender Stratocaster, often referred to as the Strat, is a model ofdesigned by Leo Fender, George Fullerton, and Freddie Tavares in 1954.
EITHER IS GOOD FOR METAL BUT YOU MAY HAVE TO MAKE ADJUSTMENTS ON THE FENDER
there's a video on youtube that shows how to make frankenstien ( a fender copy of his original guitar ,a fernandes stratocaster) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RuN2WzXfg34
Not that I know of. Why would that be necessary?
okay, for example, there is the Fender Stratocaster, this is a very common and popular guitar. Guitar companies who make beginners make whats called a "strat immatation" this is a guitar which looks pretty much identical to the real thing, but is a knock-off
There are many different types of fender guitars. One is the Fender Stratocaster. The fender Strat. is what some people call the universal guitar. People call the Strat this because if you look at any type of music (jazz, rock, blues, funk, country) you will find at least one artest that plays a fender strat. I own an American Fender Stratocaster Deluxe and I love it. If you are a rock fan, then go with the Telecaster which was made to play rock music. Fender also makes acoustic guitars but they are not the best quality I think. If you are looking for an acoustic guitar then look at Ibanez. They make a good acoustic guitar. I hope that this helps. If you have any other questions about guitars, I would suggest looking in the fourms of this website. http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/ This is the best website for all your guitar needs.
The fender guitars have great quality, as long as you buy one made in the USA or Mexico. China and Japan make fender squire guitars but they are cheaply made and don't last as long. If you are looking at buying a fender guitar then look at a Mexican or American stratocaster. That is one of the best guitars that fender makes and the best places they make them. The Mexican strat. will last you about 3 to 5 years and the USA strat. about your whole life. Hope that helps.
Instead of making a guitar from scratch, I think I would try to find a kit for a guitar, such as the kits that some music stores have for such instruments as the Fender Telecaster, Fender Stratocaster, and Fender Bass. These usually run $100-$150 for the kit. Other than that, you could try to buy all the components separately and assemble it, but it would be good deal more expensive that way.
Yes the fender guitars have great quality, as long as you buy one made in the USA or Mexico. China and Japan make fender squire guitars but they are cheaply made and don't last as long. If you are looking at buying a fender guitar then look at a Mexican or American stratocaster. That is one of the best guitars that fender makes and the best places they make them. The Mexican strat. will last you about 3 to 5 years and the USA strat. about your whole life. Hope that helps. I agree, definitely go for a strat
The Telecaster guitar is made by Fender. It is normally known as a 'fender tele'. Fender also make the well known 'stratiocaster' guitar, coloquially known as the 'fender strat'
hmm.. fender does make smaller than usual guitars as does Epiphone (gibsons other company) you can always go with , but like I tell parents people grow into guitars I started when I was 13 or 14 with a full sized fender stratocaster knock off myself. learn guitar tabliture get some picks and keep the guitar in tune always and you'll do great
I would suggest an electric guitar as they are easier to start playing and would say something like a squire by fender stratocaster starter pack which includes an amp as well but if you are on a limited budget you may wish to get a similar then get an unknown branded product.
The Fender American Stratocaster comes highly recommended for beginners. They sound smooth and have a thinner neck. Epiphone makes a Les Paul style guitar designed specifically for beginners. Squier and Yamaha also make for a good starter guitar.
fender for sure i think lol
cause they wanted to make guitars
I hope so because my 94 has a 40th anniversary badge on the headstock.
The two most popular guitars today would have to be the Fender Stratocaster and the Gibson Les Paul. Both can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars, however they make cheaper copies of these guitars under the Squier (for Fender) and Epiphone (for Gibson) labels. There are also the guitar companies ESP, BC Rich, and Ibanez if you are into playing metal. Aside from that , most genres of music use guitars Fender or Gibson. if you like folk music, you may want to get a steel stringed acoustic or for a more classic guitar feel, you may want a nylon-stringed acoustic guitar. Most importantly, you should get a feel for what type of guitar you want . Go out to Guitar Center or any instrument shops and try playing a guitar.
if your guitar is routed for it absolutely, double coil pickups are humbuckers by the way. Routed means cut for , which im sure you'll see but if the guitar has a face plate like a fender stratocaster lookalike make sure to just have a peek under , getting the face plate perfectly on it is a pain.
If you find a heavy gauge string is bending the neck, then you are probably either tightening it too much or the string was not designed for the guitar. It is generally best to buy strings designed for a stratocaster and Fender make strings designed for certain guitars.
The best thing to do is to ask the website. I mean on one hand you could look up the serial number. You can compare it side by side with another Fender stratocaster. But unless you took it apart and saw say American hardware , Fender branded guitar tuners and so forth on the headstock. watch out for tradetang guitars they make almost mirror like replicas , except the fretting may be horribly done , the electronics will be all cheap. The woods will be nowhere near as mahogany , the guitar may not even be able to intonate. Maybe you should bring it to a guitar shop and see what they think as they deal with them all day.
make sure all the screws are on the faceplate right and it should be
A nice Fender will make your music sound a bit better, and looks great as well.
the first to play the fender would probably be Leo fender him self to make sure the product would work
Fender, in their cheaper 'Squier' range, make a maple neck Stratocaster in the _very_ attractive Daphne Blue; a light pastel shade. For reasons i won't bore you with, I happen to own one, along with US Strats and other high-end guitars. IMHO They play well, sound good, and are excellent value for money. I am not associated with Fender. I have, however been playing guitar since 1962. Hope this helps.
face plate if its a stratocaster shaped guitar. Its there to make changing the pickups and stuff easier. If not pickups because some are white.
