Ce livre - avec "Fender, THE GOLDEN AGE" et "Fender: The Inside Story" de Forrest White - est LE livre à avoir sur Leo Fender. Superbement documenté, truffé d'anecdotes et d'informations, c'est un pur régal pour tout passionné de guitares de se plonger dans le destin de Leo et tout en suivant l'évolution de ses précieux travaux. Pour le prix de ce livre, en bonus un superbe DVD qui contient toutes les prises filmées en 1957 dans l'usine Fender. Un bond dans le temps très émouvant et intéressant. Une visite privilégiée de l'usine comme si on y était à la grande époque des débuts. Pas mal de livres se contentent d'aligner nombre de photos bordées de textes ou commentaires plus ou moins judicieux. Ce livre est largement au dessus de tous les autres concernant Leo Fender. LE MUST concernant Fender. Incontournable. Le "beau livre" à avoir pour tout passionné !

most definitive book you will ever read 25 avril 2010
Par Steven Hugh Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the most definitive book you'll ever read about Fender's history for a number of reasons. The author, Richard R. Smith, had the opportunity to know all of the principles personally and had the opportunity to interview them many times. Since all of those men have passed away, there will never be anyone else with that accessibility.

Add to that the fact that Smith was born & raised in Fender's hometown of Fullerton, CA., and you have a perspective that nobody else ever had or will ever have.

Mr. Smith deserves much praise for making his book both a 'serious reference' and a 'coffee-table' book at the same time. The book has hundreds of photographs and illustrations but the text is anything but fluff. Mr. Smith does an excellent job of weaving the entire story of Fender into a very readable and chronologically accurate book. He also had the advantage of using 'first-person' books written by Forrest White and other insiders as references.

The main movers and shakers of pre-CBS Fender, in addition to Leo himself, were Don Randall, George Fullerton, Freddy Tavares, and Forrest White. Smith knew every one of these men well and acquired a treasure of first-person information no other author will ever have and has to be complimented for his sense of objectivity throughout the narrative.

There are a lot of books written about the history of Fender and it's instruments but none have the substance of this one.

This book has to be the definitive story of Fender. I highly recommend it to any and all FenderHeads.

Builds The Boat, Then Misses It 10 mai 2012
Par Quiero Cafe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I suppose if you want the true and detailed history of Fender, this is the book to buy, period, end of story. It's written by a man who not only knew Leo Fender but played guitar at his funeral.

However, if you're more interested in the Fender guitars and amps than the internal bickering of the Fender Company, I suggest you first get "Fender: The Golden Age". I think it contains most of the same information, without the personal slants of the personalities involved. And it tells the story in upbeat tones which, let's be honest, if you're buying a book about beautiful guitars is what you want to read.

Summed up, this author's opinion of Leo Fender is that he was a visionary who lost the thread that led to his success, and lost it quite early. You can almost hear him taking up the minority opinion that every guitar after the Telecaster (and only the original early Telecaster) was basically Leo's misguided fiddling made manifest. The Stratocaster gets a grudging pat on the back, but you can hear the flames licking up around a pile of Jazzmasters and Jaguars. He actually claims that their only value was in making no-talents feel like their skills were greater by virtue of playing a Fender (extreme paraphrase). Heck - he might be right for all I know - I've never popped a light gauge string out of a Jazz-guar bridge. I see the things as works of art, so it is perhaps I who am misguided.

The author does acknowledge that Fender's forte was his amplifiers, whilst also implying that Leo was just farting around on those too - they just happened to be derivative farts from an unbreakable design.

Meanwhile, Don Randall, the salesman who arguably made Fender a real force instead of a boutique item, gets a free ride on the critical parade. Perhaps the author didn't know him as well. However, you do get the sense that the author sympathizes with Randall over Fender's inability to deliver designs on time (or at all). But anybody who works in the real world knows that a salesman will sell a block of wood as antique furniture if he can find a sucker to buy it. It's up to creators and engineers to dig in their heels on quality, unless they want to be cast into the pit later for making a shoddy product. Salesmen don't care and they always make the same complaints as Randall voices in the book. It just would've been nice if the author had enough real-world experience of the dynamic tension nature of business to take an equal side with Fender, a man he personally knew.

Then the post-sellout story of Fender is told in almost Greek Tragedy tones. He got old and died, never repeated his success, never figured out what a stubborn fool he was. Dang! To be fair to the author, I do understand that he was probably trying to paint a balanced picture of a man he knew very well and admired greatly. But some editor should've been able to step in and say "Hey look buddy, we all get old and die, we all lose our way, none of us get to relive past glories, but few of us keep trying until literally the day before we die. Perhaps emphasize the positive a bit."

This edition ends with a coda celebrating FMIC's amazing success, neatly underscoring how they've managed to absorb every other guitar and amplifier manufacturer that isn't Gibson in a bid for world domination. It actually manages to cut through the gloom somewhat, so get this edition if you can.

The pictures are great, but the pictures in "Fender: The Golden Age" are better, mainly because it's intended more to be a picture/coffee-table book than a real read. This book contains pictures of more historical value (i.e. black and white) and prints brochures and advertisements at a size where you can read them (which I think is a plus). Some things are glossed over in either book. "F:TGA" goes deep into the acoustic and acoustic/electric lines but doesn't mention the Fender Rhodes at all. This book barely displays amplifier pictures and glides hard by the hated Jazzmaster/Jaguar guitars and their derivatives. If there's a good picture of the student lines and Mustang I'm sorta hard pressed to remember it (I do remember a cute bikini girl holding a Mustang, but I don't remember the Mustang for some reason). But really, this is all a moot point, since this is primarily a history book with pictures and "F:TGA" is primarily a picture book with history.

So yes, do buy both this book and "Fender: The Golden Age" - just be prepared to turn to the latter in order to escape the suicidal depression this book might induce.

Best Fender book by far! 7 mars 2011
Par M. Rael - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
+1 what the first reviewer said.

This is the root-book for Fender information. Its the one the others borrow from or use indirectly to help shape their perspective. It makes the guitar book output of Tony Bacon an insult to coffee tables everywhere. This author strikes the perfect balance between factual information, historical associations, and a very pointy humor that surfaces from time to time. THIS is the book to begin your study of Fender. Other model-specific books are good too, but this is the informative source. The root. You cant go wrong with this one.

Note: this latest edition comes with a DVD. Make sure you buy this version and not the first edition. Whats in the DVD? Well that would spoil your surprise. Hint: 'home movie'

great book for Fender fans 17 janvier 2012
Par gmouse - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This book is a must for Fender fans or for any guitarist that is interested in the history of the instrument. Leo Fender is justly known as the father of the solid-body electric guitar and this book explains how this came to be. While the book focuses heavily on the "pre-CBS Golden Age", the rest of the story is not entirely neglected. I knew some of the history before I read this book, but nonetheless enjoyed reading it again. The writing is informative without being dry like a textbook. I went through it as fast as I could make time for. Highly recommended.

Definitive book! 5 avril 2013
Par Benevolent Dictator - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
More material than I could deal with, this is a delightful read if you're interested is the inner workings of the company and it also goes over Leo's later years at Music Man and G&L. A book about the man, the factory and all that made Fender great. And if you don't care about those things you can still use it to squash rats, it's a big book.
