2010 Fender SRV Stratocaster - Sunburst
The Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster is the signature model electric guitar of American guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughan, based on his favourite guitar, Number One. The guitar debuted at the NAMM Show in January 1992 and has been in production since.
The Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Stratocaster is crafted as a like-new version of the famous Number One guitar and features an alder body finished in an early '60s style Sunburst, a maple neck with an early-'60s oval neck profile, Pau Ferro fingerboard chosen for its feel and tonal similarities to South American Rosewood, and 21- 6105 jumbo frets. The pickups are Single-coil Texas Specials; they are over-wound for a big Texas-blues tone. With alnico 5 magnets, enamel-coated magnet wire and staggered pole pieces for balanced output across each string. The most distinctive visual element of the instrument is its black pickguard; engraved with the initials of the man himself. The reverse vintage-style tremolo bridge is gold plated to match the other hardware, Vaughan is said to have preferred the left-handed (or upside-down) tremolo because its placement on a right-handed guitar was more like the arrangement used by Jimi Hendrix with the trem arm above the strings rather than below them.
The guitar is in fantastic condition with only minor play wear and comes with its Vintage Tweed Hardshell Case.
