The electric guitar is considered a 20th century design and cultural icon. Two main brands made the guitars that brought rock and roll to the world in the 1950s and 1960s. Both originated in the US with Fender (founded in California in late 1946) and Gibson (founded in Michigan in 1902).
Some of the most desirable guitars are the very first models: 1950 Fender Broadcasters, 1954 Gibson Les Pauls, and the, 1954 Fender Stratocasters. These are the holy grails to collectors as they represent the first iteration of iconic designs.
