    Those designs have always been classics for me. But how did players perceive them when they got out? Do we have something about that?

    Well, the Tele was compared to a boat paddle & a toilet seat.:lol:
    But at that time a solid body guitar that's the epitome of utilitarian was going to stand out when compared to the arch tops & hollow bodies that were the most common designs out there.

    Five watt world has some really cool history videos about different guitars. Maybe you find your answers here.

    (Sorry about posting in two separate replies. There was some error while I was saving it and then I apparently saved it twice).

    I watched a few documentaries about strats. The musicians interviewed always commented about how futuristic and cool the strat looked at the time. "Spaceship" was thrown around a bunch.
