If it weren't for Leo Fender, the electric guitar wouldn't be where it is today. If it weren't for Leo Fender, the amplifier wouldn't be where it is today. If it weren't for Leo Fender, music wouldn't be where it is today. Chances are, if you were to go up to someone on the street and ask them to describe to you what an electric guitar looks like, they'd describe to you a Stratocaster. These instruments are iconic and will be for years to come. Thanks Leo.
