Rock Guitar:   The history of the guitar can be traced as far back as 1400 BC where a guitar-like instrument consisting of 4 strings was played by the Hittites.  By the time the 20th century came around, all guitars were acoustic.  Rock and roll as we know it today would never have existed without Leo Fender.  Fender invented the very first solid-body electric guitar to be mass-produced: the Fender Broadcaster in the early 1950's.  It was renamed the Telecaster 2 years later and became one of the most famous electric guitars in history.  Fender's other inventions (including the first electric bass and the world's most popular electric guitar - the Fender Stratocaster) have earned him a place in history as one of the most important developers of rock and roll.  For over 50 years now, the Stratocaster has been the guitar of choice for millions of musicians around the world because of its wide range of tones and sounds.  Some of the world's most famous and inventive guitarists throughout rock's illustrious history such as Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix, Jeff Beck, David Gilmore & the late Stevie Ray Vaughn have made Stratocaster their guitar of choice.

           Another important developer was Les Paul.  Paul not only developed the Les Paul guitar, but also was involved in the technology of recording with the inventions of close micing, echo, and the use of multi-tracking.  The Gibson guitar company is the manufacturer.  Some guitarists need a heavier tone than that of a Fender.  The Les Paul guitar sounds huge with a great sound to match.  Whether you desire a great jazz sound or a edgy hard rock style, guitarists such as Jimmy Page from Led Zeppelin, Joe Perry from Aerosmith, or Slash from Guns & Roses, have found the Gibson Les Paul the sound they prefer.

At Crystal Emporium, we cherish the way the Rock Guitar has evolved over the years and how it is the main focal point of Rock & Roll and all it has stood for over 50 years!   We are so proud to offer this beautiful Crystal Rock Guitar. It is made from 100% full-leaded crystal and stands a VERY large 7" in height!  This would make a great gift for that guitar student who's roughing it through lessons or that amateur guitarist who enjoys good ol' fashion Rock Music!  A can't miss collector's piece!
