        The Stratocaster Book by Tony Bacon is a lovely book, covering the history and development of the guitar as well as details about Leo Fender's early life. There are also technical details of the construction of the Strat and the various modifications made over the years. There are plenty of colour photographs of the various models including the signature models. It is well worth the £9.99.

        I forgot to mention that the packaging was good, in a strong hard cardbould folder and the book arrived in perfect condition. Also dispatch was quick.
