行方不明のストラトキャスター

2012年6月22日


1965年のニューポートでボブ・ディランが使ったフェンダーのストラトキャスター。その行方は長らくわからなかった


yahoo! Answersでもこのように質問されていたストラトキャスター。




ポピュラーミュージック史上でも大事件だった、1965年のニューポート、そのまさに張本人とも言うべきストラト....もしかしたらスミソニアンには革ジャンではなく、このストラトが展示されていたかもしれない。
レザー・ジャケット

その大事件から47年後、ドーン・ピーターソンはあのギターがもしかするとディランが使ったギターではないだろうかと思っていた。彼女の父親はパイロットだった。1960年代、ミュージシャンを乗せてフライトをしていた。その父親が言うにはディランがそのギターを機内に忘れていったという。

PBSの"History Detectives(歴史探偵)" という番組でそのギターが本当に1965年のニューポートでのあのストラトキャスターなのかを検証する。果たしてギターは本物なのだろうか? それは見てのお楽しみ.....て見れないよな。(webで公開してくれ)

放送は、来月17日(ニューポートの開催日を意識したのだろう)。
History Detectives Season 10: Episode 1
History Detectives

"History Detectives" host Elyse Luray with Andy Babiuk, owner of Fab Gear in Fairport

History "detectives" Elyse Luray and Wes Cowan will try to find out whether this Fender guitar is the same one played by Bob Dylan at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival

Air date set for locally-filmed 'History Detectives' TV episode (Penfield Post)



1. The Body
The paint was a now-ubiquitous three tone sunburst (pictured above) and was likely carved out of Fender’s preferred alder wood, which lends the guitar a plucky, brighter tone to correlate with an innovative “comfort contoured” body-strikingly different from the more rigid Telecaster models that dominated the music scene prior. The body’s gaping cutaway made it a favorite of future players like Clapton and Hendrix, which allowed for easy access to the instrument’s higher registers. In the live ’65 recordings of Dylan taking stage and launching into “Like a Rolling Stone,” the guitar’s illuminated growl drowned out the provocative singer’s signature rasp.

2. The Fretboard and Neck
The fretboard had 21-frets and was carved out of rosewood, reshaped to a thinner, more nimble shape than its ’57 predecessor. The newly introduced “C”-shaped neck (or back shape) is not only definitive of the modern Stratocaster and most other guitars, but allows for a more ergonomic finger placement around the fretboard. “I think it would have been very different had he not been holding the Stratocaster,” says Peden. “I think that because Dylan’s lyrics get so much attention, his guitar playing and his musicianship are definitely underrated. The guy is a fierce rhythm guitar player.”

3. The Pick-Ups
The ’62 Strat utilized S/S/S single-coil pickups at the bridge, middle, and neck, which could be selected among using a three-blade switch. In hindsight the warm vintage tone is one of the most sought after in rock music (with reverse-engineered reissues still costing upwards of $189 per set). It’s important to note, however, that Dylan probably didn’t give a rat’s a** about what was actually inside the guitar. Uniformed in a leather jacket, shadowy black Wayfarers, with a dangling cigarette never far behind, more than anything he probably just wanted the instrument loud enough to raise hell, the residual embers of which would light the torch towards rock & roll’s high-voltage future.
