Fender SRV Stratocaster

Mint, unplayed SRV Signature Strat

This sunburst finished guitar features an alder body and an early ’60s oval neck profile, a pau ferro fingerboard with jumbo frets, three Fender Texas Special™ single-coil pickups, gold-plated hardware and an unusual reversed left-hand vintage tremolo unit, exactly as SRV used.

The tone from this guitar is as close as you could possibly get to match Stevie’s signature Strat sound and the front pickup especially just has that ‘bell-like’ tone you hear on so many SRV recordings.

Either clean or overdriven, this guitar just ‘sings’ the blues. Very impressive indeed.

Fender SRV Signature Stratocaster Description

Fender SRV Stratocaster – Stevie Ray Vaughan’s incendiary style of electric blues guitar playing first came to worldwide attention when he somewhat surprisingly performed on David Bowie’s hit single ‘Let’s Dance’ in the early 1980’s. His popularity grew very rapidly thereafter, principally due to his powerhouse ‘Albert King meets Hendrix’ approach to playing his Stratocaster.

Despite having honed his craft through many years of relative obscurity playing small clubs in the US, he rapidly rose to international stardom and producing several excellent recordings with his long-term trio ‘Double Trouble’ Towards the end of the 1980’s he was often seen sharing the bill with rock aristocracy such as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and also many of the blues musicians who had originally influenced his style. He was tragically killed in a helicopter crash in August 1990, however his legacy remains very strong as one of the most influential electric blues guitarists of the modern era.

Stevie Ray mostly played Fender Stratocasters during his career and his favourite Strat (called ‘Number One’) was actually a combination instrument build from different guitars. This is the battered and heavily road-worn guitar that is most associated with him and was the inspiration behind the Fender ‘Stevie Ray Vaughan’ guitar. He collaborated with Fender to produce a signature Stratocaster® guitar shortly before his untimely passing in 1990.

This sunburst finished guitar features an alder body and an early ’60s oval neck profile, a pau ferro fingerboard with jumbo frets, three Fender Texas Special™ single-coil pickups, gold-plated hardware and an unusual reversed left-hand vintage tremolo unit, exactly as SRV used. The tone from this guitar is as close as you could possibly get to match Stevie’s signature Strat sound and the front pickup especially just has that ‘bell-like’ tone you hear on so many SRV recordings.

Either clean or overdriven, this guitar just ‘sings’ the blues. Very impressive indeed. This guitar (again part of the John Lee Collection) is literally ‘as new’ and there is even some of the original plastic covering left on the pickguard. It is in immaculate condition and comes with the original vintage style tweed case and all documents of authenticity. If you love SRV’s sound and those magical Texas blues tones then this is without a doubt the guitar for you.
