The History of the Vintage Fender Guitar Lead Series 1979-1982.

On today’s episode of History and Relics, we’re featuring a story and history of a Fender electric guitar that was part of a series made during the Fender/CBS era between 1979-1982. That series was the Lead series, and our spotlight is on the Fender Lead III from 1981.

The Lead III was the last in the Lead series built by Fender. The Series was a less expensive option than its brethren – the Fender Stratocaster – and was designed to attract a new audience of players that were coming up in the 80’s rock-n-roll and heavy-metal era.

So come along for a history lesson on a somewhat seldom seen vintage American Made guitar on this edition of History and Relics!
