The Strata Basses
A brief history of the Strata:
The Strata bass was Rob Green's first approach to creating the ultimate bass. It was though that Rob made only 16 instruments in his original first ever batch of basses and he named them the "Strata". After having found Strata N° 20 (below) we are no longer sure of how many were actually made before Fender stepped in issuing law proceedings claiming that the Strata name was too close to the Stratocaster and put an end to that. Rob Green was forced to change the name of the instruments to "Status" and rename the instruments by fitting another bridge with the new name on. A very small number of the instruments had sold by this time and Rob was unable to trace them for the re-branding ... If you own a Strata please let us know so we can trace as many as possible - Thank you!
