There are six million out there - from Eric Clapton's million-dollar Blackie to your treasured hand-me-down - and still the world can't get enough of the Fender Stratocaster, the legendary electric guitar-of-choice for players and dreamers from pioneers like Buddy Holly to today's garage-band heroes. This is the world's first hands-on, how-to manual for the Strat, taking the mystery out of maintaining and modifying what is really a relatively simple instrument (two boards, some wires, some pickups). It shows you how to make the most of your Stratocaster - and how to make it truly your own. With clear text and colorful illustrations, this guidebook takes readers through the basics of selecting and buying Strats; maintenance and repairs such as tuning, setting intonation, tremolo alignment, fret repairs, bridge and nut adjustments, electrics troubleshooting; spur-of-the-moment stageside fixes; and some basic performance enhancements like adding hot rod Fender and aftermarket pickups, locking-tremolo nuts, and more.

Comments about Hal Leonard Fender Stratocaster Handbook:
If you own a Fender Strat, or you are thinking of buying one, you need this book! This book will help you to maintain, setup, and modify your strat with ease. It's really the owner's manula that Fender should have included with the guitar.
