In 1957, Carson was involved in a top-secret Fender® project to build a completely see-through Stratocaster®. Commissioned by the then-head of sales, Don Randall, the purpose was twofold: On the one hand, the finished article was to be taken on tour around schools and museums in the United States, to educate the nation’s children on the inner workings of Leo Fender’s revolutionary Stratocaster® guitar. On the other hand, a fully transparent guitar would be the first of its kind, and would illustrate to the public, just how innovative and amazing the Stratocaster® was, with its flexible truss rod and state-of-the-art electronics.
The process of building the see-through Strat® was a daunting one, and the factory engineers’ first task was to find a substance transparent enough to enable the instrument’s inner workings to be seen clearly. The solution was found at the DuPont Corporation, who, as well as being the nation’s foremost manufacturer of automobile paint, also supplied the custom paints for Fender® guitars.
