The Lead Guitars were manufactured between 19 by the Fender Musical Equipment Co.under the direction of Gregg Wilson and Freddie Tavares.Later year Fender Lead models have a more contoured body and there are two subtle variations in headstock shape, one of which (softer contour) used tooling dating back to the 1950s Stratocaster (as with the Dan Smith Stratocaster).Neck profile and headstock thickness varied slightly throughout the production run for all Fender Lead models of different years.

The Lead Series have elements of the Stratocaster and Telecaster in their design with a body that is slightly smaller and with a slightly different shape than the Stratocaster, a Stratocaster-like neck (and headstock), and hardtail bridge with Telecaster-like string ferrules on the back of the body.An all original model MAY have the same serial number identifier on each of these major parts.More information can be found on the Fender Lead I, Fender Lead II, Fender Lead III manuals.Fender Lead II Single Coil Pickup Specifications The DC resistance of the Lead II X-1 single coil pickup is approximately 7.5 kΩ (9600 coil winds) vrs (7600 coil winds) on a Stratocaster.Lead II single coil pickups have flat ALNICO polepieces.

The Lead Series headstock was smaller than that of the then Stratocaster models and similar though not identical to the 1954 Stratocaster design.
