Gave it to my buddy for Christmas. Perused it a bit before I wrapped it up. Looks cool.

I just bought Fender - The Golden Age

Got mine is December.

Anything that Tom Wheeler writes is an automatic purchase for me, since 1981.
This one is a lot of fun.

Another great read, though not Fender-specific:

And there's a follow-up volume out:

More stories of rare guitar finds.

Do you dream of finding a 1954 Strat or 1959 Les Paul?

Following up The Strat in the Attic, Deke Dickerson shares the stories behind dozens of finds, including:


  • A 1958 Flying V belonging to a Chicago bluesman, who, it turns out, also happens to have a 1958 Explorer.


  • An out-of-the-blue, "to whom it may concern" email leads the author to a trailer park in Salem, Oregon, where one of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys' original 1940's Epiphone Emperor archtops is waiting to be purchased for a song.


  • Luthier R.C. Allen relates the tales of buying Nat "King" Cole Trio guitarist Oscar Moore's Stromberg Master 400 archtop and of being gifted a 1953 Standel amp from Merle Travis.

The Fender Archives is a great book. Fun to look through all the foldouts and memorabilia. I always like the Fender stuff Tom Wheeler puts out there. I got mine on amazon.com for $20.00 in December. It seemed like a good price for what`s in the book.
