Fender Stratocaster 'still sounds new'
According to the website, the instrument has changed very little during its 55 years in production, bar the inclusion of a few minor tweaks and innovations.
These small developments were said to have helped keep it sounding vital and new throughout its long life.
"It remains in shape and sound a potent weapon for any guitar player," MusicRadar commented.
The website added that the electric guitar has become a modern icon partly because of the legendary musicians who have made it their instrument of choice.
Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck and Cream guitarist Eric Clapton were hailed as three of the stars who have helped to popularise the instrument.
MusicRadar also flagged up the late Rory Gallagher, Hank Marvin and Buddy Holly as other notable Fender Stratocaster players.
This echoes recent observations from Wired.com, which noted that the instrument has become synonymous with the music it has been used to create.
