The Fender Stratocaster is an electric guitar introduced by Fender in 1954 that has since become one of the most popular electric guitars. Many well-known musicians use the Stratocaster, and several vanity lines of "signature" Stratocasters bearing a particular musician's name are sold.

A Stratocaster usually has 3 single coil pickups controlled by a 5-way switch. The neck has 22 frets, and is usually made of rosewood or maple.
