Clarence Leonidas ‘Leo’ Fender  was born on this day. Leo Fender founded the Fender Electric Instrument Manufacturing Company in 1946.  A number of his designs including the Fender Telecaster and the Fender Precision Bass (P Bass) have set the standard for  electric guitars and bass guitars.

Many musicians are fender fans including Keith Richards and Bob Dylan, who played a Stratocaster during his infamous electric set in 1965. George Harrison played a telecaster  on The Beatles final records and during their final live roof-top performance.
