This meticulously produced high quality publication is a passion project conceived, researched, written, typeset, and published in the UK by me. Since April 2019, books from the Limited Edition run of 1,954 copies have shipped to 30 countries all around the world to universal acclaim. I'm also delighted to report that copies of my ANNIVERSARY STRAT book have been installed in the British Library, the National Library of Scotland, the University of Oxford Library, the University of Cambridge Library, the Library and Archives of the The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, USA, the Walt Disney Archives in California, and numerous private collections worldwide.
Despite the title being listed by book retailers, the ANNIVERSARY STRAT books are only available direct from me; this is a deliberate policy that I established prior to the date of publication on 23 April 2019, and which I have maintained throughout. Less than 80 books remain as at April 2023, so to order your own personal copy before the book goes out of print please complete the order form below. If you require more details about postage, or alternative shipping or tracking options, please use the Contact Form.
By the way, if you have not already done so, you might want to take a look at some of the guitars and some of the talented past and present Fender people that feature in the 45 chapters of the book.
Many thanks for looking and best wishes,
Author & Publisher
ANNIVERSARY STRAT is priced at £30 excluding postage and packing, and as stated above the individually numbered, signed First Edition copies are only available from the author. The book is presented in A4 soft cover format, and consists of 340 pages that feature 174 photographs. The First Edition run of 1,954 copies has been printed using high quality 150 gsm paper, which gives the pages a distinctly high quality feel. Each book is numbered in the style of 0001 OF 1954 and personally signed by the author.

There are a small number of low-numbered books and a few with interesting numbers available at £35, and if you are interested in those please get in touch before ordering to check what is available. I also sell some books on ebay at https://www.ebay.co.uk/usr/garyincornwall and my ebay listings may also include a few books with low or special numbers. Please note that the book prices including shipping on ebay may be different than those indicated on this page.
PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU RESIDE OUTSIDE THE UK, IT IS LIKELY THAT YOU WILL BE REQUIRED TO PAY CUSTOMS IMPORT DUTY/TAX ON THE PACKAGE WHEN IT ARRIVES IN YOUR HOME COUNTRY. SOME EUROPEAN CUSTOMERS HAVE BEEN BILLED ADDITIONAL FEES OF UP TO €20 BY COURIERS FOR CUSTOMS AND "ADMIN" FEES ON TOP OF THE SHIPPING CHARGES BEFORE THEY WILL HAND OVER THE PARCEL CONTAINING THE BOOK. THESE CUSTOMS/DELIVERY FEES CHARGED BY THE COURIER ARE OF COURSE OUT OF MY CONTROL. SO IF YOU LIVE OUTSIDE THE UK, BEFORE YOU BUY A BOOK PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE AWARE OF THIS AND THAT YOU ARE WILLING TO PAY THE CHARGES.
I NOW ONLY OFFER "TRACKED" OR "TRACKED AND SIGNED FOR" MAIL SERVICES FOR OVERSEAS TRANSACTIONS, SO THAT AT LEAST SOME INDICATION OF THE LOCATION OF THE PACKAGE IS MADE AVAILABLE DURING SHIPPING.
Please pay the electronic invoice within 24 hours of the date of issue, otherwise your book order will expire.
