Fender 1960 Stratocaster Faded Olympic WhiteSerial #: R75808

Slingin' Price $4,400.00

In the early ’60s, armed with his Stratocaster, left-handed player Dick Dale created a unique style he dubbed “surf music” (to mimic the sound of the ocean) and earned his crown as “King of the Surf Guitar” for his extraordinary shredding technique. The Beach Boys followed with their lighter and poppy brand of surf music. The Ventures were also Stratocaster enthusiasts who made it a part of their surf sound. In the mid ’60s, the Beatles' George Harrison and John Lennon embraced the Stratocaster when recording tracks for Help!, acquiring a pair of matching Sonic Blue models. They are heard played in unison during the solo on “Nowhere Man.” The Beatles also used their Strats when tracking Rubber Soul and on later recording sessions. In the late ’60s, the Strat landed in the hands of players like Eric Clapton, Pete Townshend, David Gilmour and Jimi Hendrix who truly took music to a new level and brought the Strat to a wider level of popularity that still inspires guitarists today.
