A riveting saga in the history of rock ânâ roll: the decades-long rivalry between the two men who innovated the electric guitarâs amplified soundâLeo Fender and Les Paulâand their intense competition to convince rock stars like the Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, and Eric Clapton to play the instruments they built.
In the years after World War II, music was evolving from big-band jazz into the primordial elements of rock ânâ rollâand these louder styles demanded revolutionary instruments. When Leo Fenderâs tiny firm marketed the first solid-body electric guitar, the Esquire, musicians immediately saw its appeal. Not to be out-maneuvered, Gibson, the largest guitar manufacturer, raced to build a competitive product. The company designed an âaxeâ that would make Fenderâs Esquire look cheap and convinced Les Paulâwhose endorsement Leo Fender had soughtâto put his name on it. Thus was born the guitar worldâs most heated rivalry: Gibson versus Fender, Les versus Leo.
While Fender was a quiet, half-blind, self-taught radio repairman from rural Orange County, Paul was a brilliant but egomaniacal pop star and guitarist who spent years toying with new musical technologies. Their contest turned into an arms race as the most inventive musicians of the 1950s and 1960sâincluding bluesman Muddy Waters, rocker Buddy Holly, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Eric Claptonâadopted one makerâs guitar or another. By the time Jimi Hendrix played âThe Star-Spangled Bannerâ at Woodstock in 1969 on his Fender Stratocaster, it was clear that electric instrumentsâFender or Gibsonâhad launched music into a radical new age, empowering artists with a vibrancy and volume never before attainable.
