Fender's 75th anniversary has brought us the release of a number of limited edition commemorative electric guitars, but once you've bought the Stratocaster and played the Tele, why not sit down to read Fender 75 Years to broaden your appreciation of a company that, through Leo Fender's restless innovation, changed guitar history for keeps?
