br /> This is the view of Wired.com, which said people's mental image of legendary musicians such as Jimi Hendrix tends to include the electric guitar they play.

Stratocasters in particular were said to have become seared into the public perception of many stars, including Eric Clapton of Cream, Buddy Holly, Jeff Beck and Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour.

Wired.com stated that this demonstrates the "profound impact" that the electric guitar has had, as it has become synonymous with the music it has been used to create.

"The Fender Stratocaster is more than just an electric guitar," it commented.

"It is one of the great hallmarks of modern art."

Wired.com added that the instrument's "iconic curves" have become a key part of the image of every popular musician that has chosen to use a Fender electric guitar on stage and on record.
