“You say you wanna revolution?” The Fender Stratocaster seemed to start one with this early recording.
This Pee Wee Crayton recoding from 1954 is thought to be the first recoding using to use a Fender Stratocaster given to him by Leo Fender. Recorded on April 29th, 1954. Pee Wee took this brand new red strat to a recording studio in New Orleans and recorded “Do Unto Others.” Amazingly the opening riff should sound pretty familiar to Beatle fans. Wonder if the Beatles ever heard this?
Pee Wee Crayton took his Fender Strat to the Apollo in 1954. He played this guitar into the 1980s.
Guitar looks well played and well loved.
The Things That I Used To Do – Pee Wee Crayton filmed on a tour of Japan in December 1983 Pee Wee Crayton using his red 1954 Fender Stratocaster. Love the music. Pee Wee Crayton passed away two years later. This is a rare and one of the most historical Strats of all time.
