TEXAS TONE SECRETS 
The Sound of Stevie Ray Vaughan 

THE GEAR 

Stevie commissioned Fender Musical Instruments to reproduce his famous, battle-scarred Number One Strat shortly before his death. The Stevie Ray Vaughan Signature Strat was modeled after Stevie's personal axe and features an early 60s "Oval" neck shape, three Texas Special pickups, a Pao Ferro fingerboard with flatter 12' radius and larger frets, gold-plated hardware, a black-white-black pickguard with an etched SRV initial logo, and an inverted left-hand tremolo unit.  
    In the foreground are an old Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer distortion box and a Crybaby wah-wah pedal, the two effects Stevie used most.  
    In the backline are two of Stevie's favorite amps: the blackface 1967 Super Reverb and the tweed 1959 Bassman. Both were combo amps and had four 10-inch speakers. Stevie used Super Reverbs in addition to his Vibroverbs throughout his career. The Bassman figured prominently in his final sessions for In Step. These are the primary instruments used for the guitar tracks in The Guitar Style of Stevie Ray Vaughan signature licks by Wolf Marshall.
