A musical tribute show dedicated to the Fender Stratocaster guitar is returning to the stage.

The Guitar That Rocked The World tells the story of a young teenager who dreams he has met Leo Fender, the inventor of the Stratocaster.

In its original outing a decade ago, the South African production got rave reviews and went on a national tour.

It is now returning to Durban's Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre for a run lasting between August 5th and 30th 2010, reports Tonight.

Among the famous songs that will feature in the production are While My Guitar Gently Weeps, All Along the Watchtower and Smoke on the Water.

Earlier this year, Jeff Beck told the Fender website that he considers the Stratocaster to be the "ultimate" instrument.

He explained that he had been asked to design his own perfect guitar by another musical manufacturer, but explained that his 1954 Stratocaster would be very difficult to top.
