He seemingly brought blues into the mainstream singlehandedly, just when people began to forget the genre even existed and this signature Strat is a fitting monument to the man’s brilliance. It features an deep, early ’60s oval neck shape, a pao ferro fingerboard with 21 jumbo frets, three Texas Special single coil pickups, a reversed left-handed tremolo and a black three-ply pickguard engraved with “SRV”!

If a played to death pre-CBS Strat is your fantasy guitar, this example from may be much as you have imagined it. This sunburst example was clearly played long and hard, yet somebody loved and respected the thing. On this guitar, the neck starts out substantial and ends up as a full and deep C just before the body joint. Despite its worn appearance, this guitar is extremely clean and has never been subjected to tuner swaps or other dubious modifications.
An extra string tree was added but subsequently removed, and the only non-factory parts are five of the saddles. The highly corroded condition of the one remaining original suggests this was a repair born of necessity.
Fender instruments and amplifiers made up the bulk of SRV’s rig. We are open 7 days for your convenience, but please give us a date and time of pick up so.
The largest of the fret sizes, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. A good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers. As Vaughan himself preferred, his signature model features a thick oval neck profile the shape of the neck in cross section that imparts a distinctively comfortable fretting-hand feel, and more mass for improved tone and sustain.
Single-coil Texas Special pickups are over-wound for big Texas-blues tone with dynamically scorching output. With alnico 5 magnets, enamel-coated magnet wire and staggered pole pieces for balanced output across each string, they sing, scream and everything in between with tight bass, focused midrange and crystalline highs. Surely the most distinctive visual element of this instrument is its black pickguard, engraved with the big, bold initials of the man himself.
A great wood for instrument fingerboards, pau ferro is a South American tone-wood with a feel and sonic characteristics similar to rosewood, but lighter in color and harder. 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.

John Mayer’s first serious electric guitar was a Fender Stratocaster Stevie Ray Stratocasters, including another SRV Strat, a Fender Monterey Stratocaster, and Based on the photos, the guitar appears to be vintage, most likely dating back.
Guitars, Gear, Tone! Is this SRV strat Brazilian rosewood? I just picked up a second SRV strat. After examining it upon arrival, it does appear to be Brazilian. Pau Ferro is much tighter grained. Here are some pics comparing the two. Let me know what you guys think Brazilian on left:. I had taken it to so many “experts” and due to variation of rosewood and Pau Ferrro it will be virtually impossible to just visually tell.
I think you would have to somehow pay for a sample to be tested in a lab and I don’t know if that’s even possible yet The wood being super figured doesnt really tell you the fb is Brazilian or not, my Schecter Trad is plain rosewood and just as figured. Usually Braz is very brown-reddish.
This is a list and description of the guitars and other equipment played by musician Stevie Ray Vaughan. Vaughan played a number of Fender Stratocasters throughout his career, one of which, a body and a late rosewood curved fingerboard neck, became “the most famous battered Strat in rock history. He used a limited number of mainly vintage effect pedals, and favored Fender  and Marshall amplification. In spite of being rough on his gear, it was reported Vaughan could hear even the slightest malfunction, even when, for instance, he was running 32 amplifiers into the mixing console for the recording of In Step.

If the strings are too big you will not have the necessary power, control and ability to play fast and bend and shake as easily as Stevie did. Another good example of how powerful string control makes great tone is Kirk Fletcher. You need a high string action to allow big strings to vibrate freely without buzzing. You need to be able to play quickly with lots of bending without getting tired after 3 minutes of Texas Flood.
Stevie rarely played with only one amp.
Vaughan always claimed it was a model, since that date was written on the back Yellow was a Stratocaster formerly owned by Vanilla Fudge’s lead.
He would use that guitar as his main until around During this same time, Mayer also started using a vintage early Stratocaster in sunburst, which eventually became his favorite guitar, and the one he still regularly uses nowadays. Together with Paul Reed Smith, he designed his first signature model, the Super Eagle, which he used extensively with the Grateful Dead. This second model was based heavily on the Fender Stratocaster but featured significant design and spec changes.
Regarding amps, John went through a few different phases in his career. In the mids he began using Two Rock amps almost exclusively.
