Vintage Guitars Strike the Right Tone

By David Goe

Anyone who plays guitar dreams of playing a better guitar. That dream doesn't get much bigger than strumming an original 1950s Fender Stratocaster. As far as guitars are concerned the '50s Strat is about as good as it gets. It's the sound of Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly, Eric Clapton, Sonic Youth, John Frusciante, Buddy Guy, David Gilmour, Wayne Campbell etc... I own an American Strat, black with a maple fret board, but it pales in comparison to the original '50s Strats.  

For me that dream, most likely, will never come true. While vintage Fender guitars regularly come up for sale, the price tag is a litte out of my range. Believe me, I'd love to get my hands on a '57 2 Tone Sunburst Strat but $32,000 is absolutely out of the question. So, the next best thing? Watching other people play those instruments. Rare and vintage guitar dealers at the Chicago Music Exchange are prime purveyors of guitar porn. All sorts of vintage guitar, bass, and drum kits line their store walls and lucky for us, they've got a great YouTube channel.

Today marks the 48 year anniversary of Leo Fender selling Fender to CBS for $13 Million. Check out this video of a 1957 Strat in action. Tell me you don't want to get your hands on that.
