How glorious Fender looks from inside

Fender’s founder didn’t know how to play the guitar, but he created an instrument that has become a classic.
This year is Fender’s 75th anniversary, so we’ve decided to show you what a Fender guitar looks like in its disassembled form.
Leo Fender got creative with his guitars and decided to paint them in the colours of the then fashionable cars: red, green and metallic. At that time all guitars matched the colour of cocoa with milk.
Unexpectedly, the first people to use Fender guitars were not rock musicians, but country singers. They were drawn to Fender’s ability to produce the “vibrato” or “tremolo”, a tinkling sound that is a highlight of country music.
Also, once upon a time, Kieth Richards asked for a guitar to be “messed up” so that it wouldn’t look so new and shiny. Thus Fender were the first who started to use the unique way of ageing their instruments.
And of course the best declaration of love is marriage to the object of that love. In the 90s, an Englishman married a Fender Stratocaster, which he named Brenda the Fenda, and after the wedding he went on tour with his young “wife”.
