This blog will document the latest project undertaken by Martin Kelly, Terry Foster and Paul Kelly - a new book celebrating the genius of Don Randall and Leo Fender. "Fender: The Golden Age 1946-1970".
This is not an attempt to re-interpret the history of Fender. The book is a celebration of these truly innovative and iconic pop culture designs. Each page encapsulates the universal appeal of the Fender aesthetic (not just instruments as that is only half the story) and will interest both the average enthusiast and the serious collector. The accompanying text will inform even the most knowledgeable vintage guitar aficionado and yet not alienate the reader purely interested in design.
I am going to show some of the behind the scenes pics from the various photo shoots for the book.
