Buffo come, nonostante in vita mia abbia avuto varie Stratocaster di cui non mi sono mai innamorato, e al momento abbia una Telecaster come unica chitarra Fender di un parco di 5, io mi senta profondamente fenderiano e ami soprattutto la Stratocaster. Dev’essere che l’archetipo Fender è così vicino alle mie corde che le sue manifestazioni reali di rado sono all’altezza - almeno, quelle che non costano quanto un’automobile. Comunque sia, condivido il pensiero grato per l’uomo che le ha inventate che riporto qui sotto

The World without Leo
Today is the 21st anniversary of Leo Fender’s death. 
Hard to imagine what the world would have been without Leo. For sure, there wouldn’t have been any tele, strat, or any other caster. In fact, there wouldn’t have been any Fender at all. If Clapton, Vaughan, Gilmour, Richards, Knopfler and hundreds of others didn’t come across one of his creations, perhaps they would not have managed to unleash as much talent as they did. Jimi Hendrix without his stratocaster?
Most certainly, the horde of guitarists that we are would have a very different shape, our record collection could be miles away from today, and this very present blog might not even exist.
Yes, M. Fender, Put aside a few slices of gratitude to the elders (thirties, forties) we owe you almost everything. You are very much missed.

    As a guitar player, Fender amp fanatic, and resident of Fender’s hometown, Fullerton, I have to reblog. Thank you Leo!
