19 December 1963 Strat

Battered 1963 Stratocaster
Manufacturer: Fender
History: Designed in 1954 by Leo Fender, the stratocaster has been in production continuously since Leo Fender created it
Who played it? David Gilmour, Mark Knopfler, Bob Dylan, Ronnie Wood, Eric Clapton
Matt's strat story: Bought in London in 1986. Nick Dias, now at Norm's, sold it to me and can corroborate this story. I popped into the shop and fell in love. It was £800.00. I put £50.00 down despite not having the money and no idea where or how I was going to get it. I returned home, in a panic. On the doormat was an envelope from WEA records ( remember them?). Inside was a cheque ( remember them?) for the fee for the first record I ever played on. For £800.00.

17 December 1965 Supro...

What does Matt Backer have in common with Ry Cooder and David Bowie?

alt Other than charisma, talent and good looks, he now is the proud owner of a 1956 Supro just like the ones played by Bowie and Cooder. Impressive. Yes.
