Then a puzzling thing happened. As the bridge floats, the instrument has a tendency to go out of tune during double-stop string bends. After the usual greeting rituals, Jimmy and Bobby looked at each other, nodded, and the nucleus of the Stratoblasters was solid. An old friend and vocalist extraordinaire named John O'Daniel bounded back-stage and approached the two. Some players, such as Eric Clapton and Ronnie Wood , feel that the floating bridge has an excessive propensity to detune guitars and so inhibit the bridge's movement with a chunk of wood wedged between the bridge block and the inside cutout of the tremolo cavity, and by increasing the tension on the tremolo springs; these procedures lock the bridge in a fixed position.
The fun and excitement that each and every band member felt, each and every song - leapt off the stage and permeated the audience thus beginning a reciprocal relationship that honestly exists to this very day. As of , these include the more affordable American Special Stratocaster and the more expensive American Elite Stratocaster. Design developments[ edit ] The Fender Stratocaster was the first guitar to feature three pickups and a spring tension vibrato system , as well as being the first Fender with a contoured body. Randy Cates, an accomplished bass player and old friend, came on-board to aptly complete the Stratoblaster rhythm section. Then a puzzling thing happened. This model line has been continuously improved and remained in production until late The recording was made at Fatso's in Arlington, Texas, a popular nightclub and one of the band's favorite spots. As before, the album was recorded live - as it was felt by all that this was the only way to begin to capture the energy and excitement of the band. In Fender introduced a 5-way selector making such pickup combinations more stable. This "in between" tone is caused by phase cancellation due to the physical position of the pickups along the vibrating string. The audience was small but contagiously receptive. Louis had become the scene of birth of the spark that would eventually ignite the band named the Stratoblasters. Original Stratocasters were manufactured with five tremolo springs, allowing the bridge set up to "float". Through the years a small fellowship of Stratoblaster members have evolved fulfilling the needs of the band, as other members must take their temporary leave. Some Stratocasters have a fixed bridge in place of the tremolo assembly; these are colloquially called "hard-tails". Bugs, very graciously, consented to allow Jimmy and company to retain the Stratoblasters name as they would be carrying on the tradition of the three guitar entity. As string gauges have changed, players have experimented with the number of tremolo springs, and as the average gauge has decreased over the years, modern Stratocasters are equipped with three springs as a stock option in order to counteract the reduced string tension. When the Fender company was bought from CBS by a group of investors and employees headed by Bill Schultz in ,  manufacturing resumed its former high quality and Fender was able to regain market share and brand reputation. Dan Smith, with the help of John Page, proceeded to work on a reissue of the most popular guitars of Leo Fender's era. The Stratocaster's double cutaways allowed players easier access to higher positions on the neck. Unforeseen by all, the stage of Mississippi Nights in St. The question was, would anyone else care? Fender —present[ edit ] During the CBS era, particularly the s, the perceived quality of Fender instruments fell. The neck and middle pickups are each wired to a tone control that incorporates a single, shared tone capacitor, whereas the bridge pickup, which is slanted towards the high strings for a more trebly sound, has no tone control for maximum brightness. Hank Marvin ,  Jeff Beck  and Ike Turner  have used the Stratocaster's floating vibrato extensively in their playing. They decided to manufacture two Vintage reissue Stratocaster models, the one-piece maple neck and a rosewood-fretboard along with the maple-neck Telecaster, the maple-neck and rosewood-fretboard Precision Basses, as well as the rosewood-fretboard "stacked knob" Jazz Bass.
