Buying a Fender Stratocaster

Some time ago, I read this nice post on Ebay by the user robwil1952. I found this very interesting, since in practice it summarises the whole guitar fender production. You can find the post here.

In that page I found a very interesting link, that visually shows the evolution of the guitar over time explaining also the serial number stuffs. About the serial number, the rules are also well explained here and there is also the so called guitar dater project.

I recommend also reading this.
