The Sound of Stevie Ray Vaughan
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
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.
