FENDER STRATOCASTER GUITAR 75th anniversary – 2021 one ounce silver proof coin
The Fender brand is widely recognised as one of the best in the music industry. Fender guitars have been used by musicians all over the world, transforming music in every major genre including country and western, jazz, rythym and blues and the most popular – rock ‘n’ roll. Established in 1946, Fender has become a cultural icon in it’s own right and champions ‘THE SPIRIT OF ROCK-N-ROLL®‘ for all music lovers, from young guitarists just learning to play to legendary musicians.
In August, 1954, Fender unveiled the Stratocaster (“Strat”) guitar. With the Telecaster and Precision Bass having been on the market for some time, Leo Fender was able to incorporate input from working musicians into the Stratocaster’s design.(Wikipedia)
