There's also a lot of moving parts where we can change up the pickups, change up the toggle switch and set the power we want. Jimi said "It's brilliant because everything that wasn't design by Gibson there's no argument that it is the most popular design and it is brilliant everything about it I mean the contour the body contour were the volume knob is you can get the volume knob with your pinky where the pickup selector is you can get it with your pinky." Tim agreed on Jimi's thought about Leo Fender's innovative creations.

Leo Fender & Les Paul's friendship and rivalry. Ian S. Port - GSP #123

Guitar Speak Podcast

After a fascinating appearance on our Stratocaster 65th Anniversary Special, author Ian S. Port returns to discuss his book "The Birth of Loud" in depth. It is a brilliant read! “A hot-rod joy ride through mid-20th-century American history. With appropriately flashy prose, [Port] dismantles some misconceptions and credits some nearly forgotten but key figures. He also summons, exuberantly and perceptively, the look, sound, and sometimes smell of pivotal scenes and songs. The Birth of Loud rightfully celebrates an earlier time, when wood, steel, copper wire, microphones and loudspeakers could redefine reality. Tracing material choices that echoed through generations, the book captures the quirks of human inventiveness and the power of sound.” John Pareles, New York Times Book Review.
